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.
