John Edwards, and the National Enquirier Have Until the DNC Convention to Sort Out This Scandal

David Perel, the National Enquirer editor whose made it his personal newsstand mission to bring down John Edwards, has insisted he won't let anybody else, especially the mainstream media, dictate how and when his reports of the ex-senator's love scandal come out. Which is why he waited until yesterday to release the first photo of Edwards and his love child Frances Quinn Hunter.

This is sort of an empty promise, since the MSM has basically left the story alone, meaning there's nobody trying to beat the Enquirer's scoops. There's one exception though: the Raleigh News & Observer.

They've been trying to ask Edwards about the scandal, with little success. But that's not keeping them from advancing their own side of things; the paper hits today with news that Edwards better sort out his scandal if he expects to keep a date with the Democratic National Committee, whose convention is just two weeks away.

Oh, speaking of the DNC? Seems that's the one thing that Perel will let dictate his news breaking.

Relays the National Review:' "Obviously, the convention has not been our driving force behind the story,??? Perel says. ???The reporting takes however long it takes. It took seven months to go from the December story to the [Beverly Hilton] meeting???.But if it happens to be a happy coincidence ??? if the story just happens to be breaking around that time, in terms of maximum exposure ?????? Perel pauses. If the convention wasn???t part of the timetable before, it is now. The Edwards pictures might make a nice splash with the Democratic delegates gathered in Denver.'

Hmmm. Who wears surgical scrubs to a hotel room?

There's something about this "photo" that just screams bullshit, isn't there?

JenJen, I think you might be on to something. I think the timing of this story benefits the Clintons, as they negotiate their place at the DNC convention.

Who cares about Edwards affair? He is doing the same thing that 95% of american do everyday. I would still vote for him in a minute over the likes of John McCain or George Bush. For that matter any republican.
