-- just as, pre-invasion, they covered for Saddam -- that raises a question: What else are they not telling us for fear it will hurt the Democrats' prospects?

The NE says the media had access to their info and chose to ignore it.


Mondo: Have you ever seen a more blatant–what we’ve called it–”media blackout” of any story the Enquirer has broken than the Edwards affair?

DP: No. Amazing, simply amazing. It wasn’t a total blackout, but very nearly.

Mondo: Why do you think this was?

DP: A couple of things: partly a lack of ability and partly a lack of desire on the part of the media.

Is it possible that disdain for the Enquirer played a part? The cable networks are bascially gossip services now anyway, and the only way they can feel like they are still "real" journalists is to kick around the Enquirer.
