Should We Believe it?
Even if John Edwards was confronted by reporters from the Enquirer at a Los Angeles hotel; even if “his face turned totally white” when he saw reporters; even if this part of the story is confirmed by Fox News; even if a woman named Rielle Hunter was at the same hotel with her baby; do we jump to the conclusion that Edwards is having an affair?
The Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards – whom he did not immediately recognize – in a hotel men’s room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door.
The Enquirer says it has videotape of Hunter entering a hotel room and Edwards exiting the same room, but the publication has declined requests to release any visual evidence.
Hunter has said the father of her child is former Edwards staffer Andrew Young, who also say he is the child’s father.
To be fair, the Enquirer has broken stories in the past. And maybe there are others the tabloids have broken than need further exploration by the so-called mainstream media.
