Analyzing the Edwards mistakes

The media is largely responsible for vetting our political candidates. They SUCK at this. Michael Calderone on the "Edwards Epilogue."

"I feel sorry for the liberals who were duped by Edwards,” said Cliff Kincaid editor of the right-leaning watchdog organization Accuracy in Media. “They were the real victims of the failure to vet Edwards.”

“Now we know that Edwards was a phony in more ways than one,” Kincaid added. “Our media, especially progressives in the media, were in love with Edwards because of his liberal views. But he wasn't in love with them. He was in love with someone else—and it turns out it wasn't his wife.”

Yep. Sad chapter.
