It's called High Infidelity, and it is about time that John McCain's similar behavior got some mainstream press.

Personally, I am totally disgusted by the constant media coverage of sex scandals... but at least they balanced the scale.

While McCain was married to his first wife, who was disabled from a car accident, he was "aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich," according to a New York Times colunmist's account of the 1970s incident that predated McCain's election to the Senate.

(Please DIGG the article up.)

UPDATE: Obviously this article comes nowhere near "balancing the scale", but it is at least a tiny pull in the direction of fairness.  I am so fed up with the corporate media that I can't tell hyberbole from cheese.

The article is a sad, objective look at the reality of adultery during illness.

It is something that should not be the topic of the day.

We should be talking about Russia instead.

But, again, at least they balanced the scale.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
