John McCain has given just as many conflicting explanations of his adultery that he committed with his now-wife Cindy against his first wife. Yet, ABC isn’t exploring those apparent lies. Instead, ABC is focusing on John Edwards’ inconsistencies when explaining his extramarital affair.
ABC says they’re doing this because the details surrounding Edwards’ affair are “hardly in keeping with the high moral tone Edwards set during his run for President.” Really? And John McCain hasn’t set a high moral tone? His campaign hasn’t repeatedly called him an “American hero”? That’s not a high moral tone? Of course, it is, but ABC just doesn’t want to cover McCain’s adultery because, well, their reporters like him and “know” that he’s a good guy. So they choose to not report the news about the GOP presidential candidate, but do report the same news about the Democrat who isn’t a presidential candidate at all.
1. John Edwards. Not a presidential candidate. Hasn’t criticized other people’s sex lives. Doesn’t believe the government should interfere with your sex life. And not wooing the votes of “Christian conservatives” who care about such things as adultery.
2. John McCain. Is a presidential candidate. Has said that gay people aren’t as good of parents as straight people. Believes it is acceptable for the government to treat people as second class citizens based on their sexual orientation. And is wooing the very religious conservatives who frown on the very things that John McCain has done.
Putting aside the unanswered questions about Vicki Iseman – such as whether people at her firm, years ago, suspected that her relationship with McCain was looking a tad too close – and putting aside the question of just where is Vicki Iseman right now – John McCain has been just as not forthcoming as John Edwards, when it comes to affairs.
McCain’s explanation of his break up with his first wife doesn’t correlate to the actual facts. McCain claimed that his affair with Cindy didn’t overlap with his marriage with his previous wife. According to the LA Times, that’s untrue. And that would mean that McCain lied about committing adultery. And even weirder, the LA Times basically alleges that McCain committed bigamy, while denying it.
So, ABC thinks it’s relevant that John Edwards MAY have lied about committing adultery, but ABC doesn’t think it’s relevant that John McCain DID LIE about committing adultery and possibly bigamy.
Do you need any more proof as to how conservative, how right-wing, how so wanting to please the Republicans our media has become?
