Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

I agree with all of those criticisms of the substance of the piece. I was basically making an argumentum ad verecundiam. Jack Shafer's position and experience make him more of an authority on media...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Here's a 2004 piece (http://www.slate.com/id/2102303/) by Slate's media critic Jack Schaefer, arguing that the Enquirer has become as reliable as most media outlets. I personally think that's a bit...

Re: Bush's Booze Crisis

I've indirectly addressed this sort of thing above. I don't pay attention to any Enquirer story based solely on the hearsay of unnamed sources, which is why I didn't pay attention to the Edwards...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

If find it pointless and futile to argue with someone who claims to know your motivations better than you do. All I will say is that it's almost invariably a mistake to assume that your opponent is...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Leaving aside the reliability of the circumstantial evidence that Edwards visited his rumored lover late at night at a hotel and ran away when confronted (which I think can reasonably be described as...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

My post was meant to be a good-natured ribbing. I like Mickey a lot and think some commenters are a bit too mean towards him, but I would never seriously compare him to Batman or claim that...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

You're quoting a much earlier article. You need to read the most recent (http://www.nationalenquirer.com/sen_john_edwards_caught_with_mistress_and_love_child_in_la_hotel/celebrity/65193) one:

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

It is only in a criminal trial that we find that evidence beyond a reasonable doubt is necessary proof that a fact occurred. In this case, I think the circumstantial evidence, presented by quoted...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Check my post history -- did I post anything on the Edwards rumor until today? I didn't mention anything about it until the evidence became clear that they had merit. When identified sources are...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

I think you're conflating two different things here: my motivation for posting this and my reaction to the underlying facts of the case.


My motivation for posting was to tease my left-leaning...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Honesly, I think the whole thing is rather sad and wished it was never reported in the first place, at least until Elizabeth Edwards passed. But once Pandora's Box has been opened there's no going...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Brendan, I'm surprised that you're having trouble seeing that my comments were mainly made with tongue firmly in cheek. I figured the Batman comparisons would have made that clear.

Seriously,...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

TIME (http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1816620,00.html) magazine reports that Edwards was on the VP list.



Generosity often leads to resentment, so I assume that your...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Brendan, I sense some reluctance on your part to express gratitude to Mickey, despite the fact that he helped save your political party's ass this election.

Why is that? You know, I just...

Re: MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

Actually, it's mostly because I believe that Mickey deserves to get the extra traffic, given all the flak he's received for helping to save the Democratic party. Many lefties on this site and in the...

MICKEY IS VINDICATED!

So it appears that we have pretty strong evidence that Edwards had a love child with a former campaign worker -- he was seen visiting the Beverly Hills hotel where she and her child were staying...
