Rosenbaum’s Revelations: LAT sitting on DC sex scandal story?


You’ve just gotta read this….

So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. “Everyone knows” meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. “Sitting on it” because the paper couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.

If it’s true, I don’t envy the LAT. I respect their hesitation, their dilemma, deciding to run or not to run it raises a lot of difficult journalism ethics questions and they’re likely to be attacked, when it comes out—the story or their suppression of the story—whatever they do.


I asked Rosenbaum the following question
: You said, “The person who told me (not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.”
Do you suppose that your acquaintance assumed you would write about it, or that you wouldn’t?
his response:
It’s a valid question and I can’t be certain, but I didn’t get the feeling there was calculation behind it; it came up casually in the course of a meandering discussion with two others present, not as if it was designed to achieve an objective.

So, RR doesn’t believe he was being set up to be the one who would break the story and give the pack an excuse to jump in….

Blogger Vince Foster has an interesting SWAG theory…

I’ve been getting a few emails from people who say they work in Washington and everyone “knows” about this relationship. Once again – this is just throwing this out there. It is about Hillary’s relationship with her “right hand woman” Huma.
Who is Huma? Read about her here:
For instance, I got an email from an government email address recently “usdoj.gov” who wrote:
I am close enough to both Hillary and Huma to know that it is an open secret on the campaign that those two are romantically involved. It is something you will never get them to verify though…

So… I’m just going to throw this out there as a wild hunch of why the LATimes is sitting on this story.

I do get a lot of viewers looking at that page on my website. Are they looking at that page because they are hearing about the rumor?

Makes as much sense as any of the other theories out there.

I’m going to throw out a wild speculation of who it is, and what it’s about. Just a wild ass therory.

Well, of course they would only with hold a scandal if it was a leftie. DUH!

BTW, I clicked on the newsmax ad/poll, so you would get credit for the click. I did not participate in the poll, as I don’t need new e-blasts on my new puter.
