LA Times Sitting On Major Sex Scandal Involiving "Leading Presidential Candidate"

So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. “Everyone knows” meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. “Sitting on it” because the paper couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.

They must mean Democrat or they wouldn't sit on the story.

I don’t understand the ethical dilema-if it’s about a Republican, they’ll run it. If it’s a Democrat, they’ll spike it. If it’s about Hillary, they’ll discredit and destroy the source.

It must be the rumors about John Edwards and the woman who worked on his campaign! IF it were a Republican, it would be splattered in every media source in America!

If it is a Republican, they will wait the night before the election to run it as they did with the Bush/drunk driving story so that there will be no time to answer it. That is how the MSM works.

Dennis Kucinich... Hanging out with Shirley MacLaine and checking out UFO’s??? Was that really all they were doing at her place???

A scandal like this could probably derail his campaign. The horror, the horror.

No. If it were a dem, it would be out by now so the dems don't nominate someone who will take a hit after the nomination or so that the information is "old hat" long before the election. That they are sitting on it means it's an R. They are hoping he gets the nomination and then the story "leaks out" anyway close to the election. All the time, the Old Media company protests it was worried about the ethics so it sat on the story.

It's the way they handled the Foley scandal, when the target was an R. It sat and sat and, amazingly, just before the election, a leftist operative gets the info and springs it.

OTOH, releasing the info early is how they handled the info when the target was a D. Remember Jennifer Flowers? By the election it was "old news."

The fact that this is mentioned now, it’s probably about Edwards or Obama. Unless one of the GOPers is playing with some guys privates, it wouldn’t have been mentioned.

It has to be about a Republican.

The LA Times would never have let this leak out about a Dem.

They would have buried it and anyone who dared speak of it.

Democrats can have sex scandals?

How?

They stop at nothing, even GLAAD debates, if it isn’t Edwards then they are blowing smoke, as Ms. Edwrad’s health condition may be what they are taking into consideration.

Still waiting for the McConnel one...

Odds are it is either Rudy or Hillary.

If it is Hillary, she is trying to keep the lid on this scandal.

If it is Rudy they are waiting until he receives the nomination from the Republicans, then they will release the info to guarantee that Hillary sweeps into the White House. If it leaks out now, they know that someone else will be able to take on Hillary. But if Rudy’s campaign derails for other reasons, then we nay never hear about this bombshell.

That likely depends on the candidate. If someone like Thompson, Hunter, Tancredo, or Huckabee, why wait? Hit them now and let their ship sink. If it's Giuliani or Romney, then perhaps wait. I say this because they seem to be more 'anointed' by the MSM so waiting until election eve would be more dramatic.

Must be a Democrat. Romney's wife is hot, and Fred is too busy making babies of late. And Rudy doesn't have a working penis. Ron Paul's wife is sick, and he is too decent to do that to her (except perhaps with Suha Arafat).

Could he Edwards. His wife was fat as a house for years, now she has cancer. He has shown he has no morals, after bankrupting every OBGYN in the Carolinas with phony science.

Michelle Obama is dogmeat who refuses to wear makeup, so could be him too. Can't be Kucinich, his wife is a babe who looks like she works part time as a dominatrix.
