This video is HILARIOUS! Thank you Huffinton Post.
John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, talked to news-ertainment television show “Extra” last year while promoting her campaign “webisodes.” While the interview was condensed for air, hours of footage were left on the cutting room floor. Now 23/6 has raided the “Extra” vaults for an inside look at the interview you were never meant to see.
Wow. As a John Edwards fan I found this article to be very disturbing. Why has this been silenced in the media? It certainly does have all the necessary components for worthy news. This article is from another blogger who is trying to get this story out there as it should be addressed! I’m not saying that any of these allegations are true but this is the first I have even heard about this. Seems strange as he was running for President of the United States just a few months ago?
Before I dive in, let me get the ‘objectivity’ thing out of the way. As a citizen journalist whose main claim to fame is producing satirical comedy, I can be upfront about my political leanings. I’m a recovering libertarian and currently I’m a registered Democrat who is excited to be voting for Barack Obama in November. I like John Edwards and up until a few days ago, he would have been my first choice for Vice President on an Obama ticket. I’m far from Puritan — anything two or more consenting adults want to do is fine by me. I also think it’s obvious a person’s sexual life doesn’t keeps them from being an effective politician.
I’m judging this situation using two standards; 1) what’s the truth? 2) how’s it going to play out in the media?
The truth is that I believe anyone who looks into the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair story will see that Edwards has, at best, acted in a very suspicious manner for over a year now. When the Larry Craig story was breaking, I didn’t buy his particular line of bullshit and I don’t buy Edwards’s either after I’ve spent the last couple of days Googling with my wife. (That’s not as dirty as it sounds.) At first, I was skeptical of the National Enquirer story catching Edwards leaving the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel at 2:45am because there were no pictures and the tabloids aren’t reliable. Now it turns out that Edwards was at the hotel, so was Ms. Hunter, and that he when he saw reporters he hid in the bathroom until security guards came and got him.
I got more suspicious after reading a story on The Huffington Post from last September by Sam Stein detailing the weird story of some short webisodes about John Edwards that mysteriously were pulled off the internet. Read it yourself here and fold it into the mix of the current allegations.
