Edwards Admission Raises Questions for Media

    I don’t care what John Edwards does. He has to answer to his wife—the woman with cancer who stood by him and allowed herself to be used like a campaign poster. That is their business.

    But how will media outlets react in the coming days? Consider the facts: They were lied to, used like so much fluff—dare I say, they were treated like John Edwards’ wife—and they took it. And like a battered spouse, they keep coming back for more.

    Will they now start treating John Edwards’ bogus poverty pimping for what it is, a cynical ploy to assuage his sense of guilt over making millions as a trial attorney feeding off of legitimate business?

    They were more than willing to ignore his $400 haircuts while working people were killing themselves to pay the obscene taxes John and his comrades have imposed. They ignored his mansion that puts Buckingham Palace to shame. They ignored the obvious hypocrisy he and his cronies have spewed out hourly.

    But now that it is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they were lied to and played like fools, will they wake up? Somehow, I doubt it.
