Jed Lewison has been tracking how many times the mainstream media mentioned John Edwards’ affair, and yesterday the number dropped by a factor of four. Why? On Sean Hannity’s show, Alan Colmes finally got tired of a bunch of conservatives yammering on about how you can’t trust someone who cheats on his wife, and asked the obvious question — what about John McCain’s affair? He cheated on his injured wife, and lied about it. Why can we trust McCain and not Edwards?
I guess once the media realized that if they keep talking about Edwards’ affair, they might have to talk about McCain’s affair, they decided it was better to just shut up.
