    Staffers(who were, after all, paid employees of Edwards)weren't talking at the time.  

    If a disgruntled staffer wanted to produce an unflattering clandestine video of John or Elizabeth Edwards, they could have.  But they didn't.  If Ms. "Hunter" wanted to publicly out Edwards as the father of her child, she could have.  But she didn't.  

    There was no media conspiracy to cover up for Edwards.  With nobody in the know willing to discuss the rumors at the time, the MSM would have had to aim cameras at hotel windows and bribe service employees in order to obtain direct evidence.

      The book is proof of it. The Edwards affair is proof of it. Edwards' statements are proof of it. Edwards' staffers statements are proof of it.

      The ONLY people in the dark were the voters. It was clearly common knowledge to everyone else, staffers and media.

      The real question is why didn't the media do its job and investigate and report it.
