The National Enquirer has been on the story for months but the liberal media ignored a story that is an embarrassment to the Democrats in Washington and the Democratic Party in general since Edwards was a candidate for Vice-President and, more recently, for President.
One of the National Enquirer articles can be found here. The photo above shows Edwards and Rielle Hunter, his alleged mistress. Hunter was a resident of Chapel Hill, North Carolina during the affair confessed to by Edwards.
It has been well documented that aides of Edwards spirited Rielle Hunter off to California where she and a former Edwards aide have been living is separate million dollar homes presumably paid for by Edwards. The aide in California is trying to take blame away from Edwards by saying he is the father of Hunter's baby.
The report at the link below wonders what is the bigger scandal: what Edwards did or the media’s long cover-up?
In February, the New York Times ran a shockingly thin story insinuating that John McCain might have had an affair with someone he was chummy with.
By the standards The New York Times used in its McCain piece, the John Edwards scandal should have been front-page news several days running.
Instead, no one followed up -- until Edwards partially confessed after the Enquirer published damning photos and after a home-state newspaper chronicled Edwards' denials and compared them with the evidence on hand.
