The National Enquirer is claiming to have pictures of John Edwards and his love child Frances Quinn Hunter. The main stream media claims they are being responsible in reporting this story. Or is it that they just want this embarrassing John Edwards story to go away and be the the story that you never see?
The NATIONAL ENQUIRER is releasing the photograph that the world has been waiting for – the first-ever picture of John Edwards and his love child!
The stunning “spy photo” shows the former presidential contender holding his infant daughter Frances Quinn Hunter at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles – where the ENQUIRER caught him visiting the baby’s mother, his mistress Rielle Hunter.
Edwards is holding his love child while standing in front of a distinctive striped curtain.
The problem with any type of story like this is that if there is not an emphatic denial and reason provided by John Edwards to explain away the pictures, the perception is that one is hiding something. There usually is a little truth in all stories, even if the story gets stretched a bit. The blurred tabloid pics cause pause. However, it is 100% confirmed that John Edwards was at the hotel. Now the question he must ask is why. Is the above pic real or faux, who knows. The fact that the MSM refuses to cover the story because they are claiming to be responsible is nonsense. If John Edwards was a Republican this story would have been covered much differently.
However, one would pose the question if the tabloid story is an unfounded lie … where is the John Edwards law suit??? He is a trial lawyer.
Think that the National Enquirer article is not having an effect on Edwards? With two weeks to go before the Democratic National Convention, the tabloid’s claims threaten Edwards’ role at the Democrats party convention. This little scandal just doesn’t seem to be going away. Now with the Convention just a short time away, the MSM may be forced into covering the John Edwards love child scandal and as Flopping Aces says, “forced to report the news”.
If Edwards fails to clear up the story in short order, he risks party officials deciding not to have him speak or, if they do, creating a distraction from a week focused on Barack Obama accepting the nomination.
“If there is not an explanation that’s satisfactory, acceptable and meets high moral standards, the answer is ‘no,’ he would not be a prime candidate to make a major address to the convention,” said Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chair.
Instead some Democrats say convention organizers will try to avoid the lingering questions if Edwards himself doesn’t talk.
“He absolutely does have to [resolve it]. If it’s not true, he has to issue a stronger denial,” said Gary Pearce, the Democratic strategist who ran Edwards’ 1998 Senate race. “It’s a very damaging thing. … The big media has tried to be responsible and handle this with kid gloves, but it’s clearly getting ready to bust out. If it’s not true, he’s got to stand up and say, ‘This is not true. That is not my child and I’m going to take legal action against the people who are spreading these lies.’ It’s not enough to say, ‘That’s tabloid trash.’ ”
