  •  I was appalled at TPM's coverage of it... (0+ / 0-)

    ...the sensationalism that every single post and headline had on that story, but that doesn't mean I didn't want them to do the investigation. But Josh was fucking delighted to plumb the speculative depths of Sanford's disappearance to a ridiculous level (Naked Hiking). I had a problem with other media outlets who do this as well but I expected better from TPM.

    But once again that doesn't mean the issue shouldn't have been reported on.

    There's something attractive about invincible ignorance... for the first 5 seconds.

      What other conclusion could he have come to, other than naked hiking?

      Sanford's office said he was hiking...on Naked Hiking Weekend.

      I'm sure everyone who went hiking that weekend was NOT naked, but come on, it's not that much of a stretch. Of course now we know he was banging his mistress in Argentina. Not sure which one is more scandalous hehe...Senator found hiking naked in public, or Senator found banging Argentinian mistress.
