John Edwards’ Adultery (The story the Mainstream Media won’t cover)

Posted on July 31, 2008. Filed under: Liberal Idiots, Media Bias, Politicians |

I have NEVER liked John Edwards. In fact, his voice grates on my nerves every time I hear him speak, and I’m originally from North Carolina, so it’s not his accent, it’s his fakeness!!! Well, we’ve finally seen what he’s really like (even though the mainstream media won’t report the story) and I have been proven correct about his character, or lack thereof. It’s scummy enough that a man would cheat on his wife, but it’s even scummier that he would do it while she’s battling cancer. Come on MSM, report the story like you would if it were a conservative caught cheating!!!

The Real Victims of John Edwards’ Adultery
by Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

The clock read 2:40 a.m. A 54-year-old man with perfectly coiffed hair slipped quietly out of a Beverly Hills hotel room. He jumped on an elevator for a ride down to the ground floor. When the doors sprung open he was shocked to find several National Enquirer reporters waiting to confront him.
His face reportedly turned white with his eyes widening. This man, who has mastered the art of political debates and has run the gauntlet of several national campaigns, nonetheless looked like a deer caught in headlights. Trying to escape the reporters, he ran. He ducked into a hotel men’s room. Soon the crowd grew beyond reporters. It took hotel security to break up the late-night crowd outside the toilet.
The ensuing headlines trumpeted Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards’ rendezvous with his mistress. It made news only because he is a well-known public figure, but sadly, infidelity takes a toll in the lives of millions of lesser known couples.
According to polling by the Associated Press, 22 percent of married men and 14 percent of the married women in the America have had “an adulterous affair.” Put another way, that is 19 million men and 12 million women who are married and have committed adultery.
Edwards’ exposure by journalists doesn’t make him a victim as some pundits have argued; the real victims are his wife Elizabeth and their children. Adultery hurts families. They feel betrayed. Trust is destroyed. Family stability and lives are shaken, not to mention the baby conceived as a result of the Edwards affair.
A common belief today is that infidelity is strictly an individual’s own business. But in reality, the damage spreads and severely harms the innocent.
Last October, when the story of Edwards’ affair broke, he denied it. Yet he continued to see his mistress. To make matters worse, his wife Elizabeth is suffering from cancer. She heroically encouraged him to run for president despite her illness. She demonstrated that her vows “to love and cherish” had deep meaning by her selfless actions.
In his book “Broken Hearth,” Bill Bennett writes about the moral collapse of the American family. “The family is already reeling from the effects of the sexual revolution,” he says, “which replaced the traditional marriage ethic with a code that has sought to free both marriage and human sexuality itself from restraint and commitment. We have reaped the consequences in promiscuity, adultery, cohabitation, divorce, and out-of-wedlock births.”
In the 1970s, Bennett said “experts” of the era promoted the idea that “husbands and wives needed to respect each other’s need for individuality, ‘self-awareness,’ and ‘personal growth.'” Couples were told to “get in touch” with their own feelings by “rejecting such rigidly defined social roles as ‘husband’ and ‘wife.'” Bestselling books on “open marriage” and other “new forms of relationships” were sold to the American public. Although the concept of an “open marriage” and the like were not adopted by most people, Bennett says “there can be no question that the radicalizing talk had an effect, fracturing the lens through which many people viewed commitment, marriage, or parental authority.”
“Adultery is about broken promises,” says Miami-based Pastor Rich Wilkerson. “Every day, millions of men and women break their marriage vows — to their spouses, their children, and even worse, to God.”
At weddings, couples promise and commit to love, cherish, honor, in sickness and in health, to forsake all others .till death do us part.
Recently, messages to the contrary repeatedly tell people “you deserve to be happy” and “it’s all about you” and we are collectively taught to selfishly think of only of ourselves.
In July 2000, when the story of mother and married actress Meg Ryan’s affair with actor Russell Crowe hit magazine racks, Ryan’s mother, Susan Jordan, commented. Although her daughter’s image as America’s sweetheart “may never recover,” Jordan said, at least she [Meg Ryan] was “being honest” about her feelings. “I think Russell is exciting and is giving her something that was clearly lacking in her marriage.” Ryan’s husband divorced her and six months later Crowe dumped the actress. Her career and life have never been the same.
Adulterers place their own “needs” and desires above those of their families. The consequences of infidelity spread like wildfire, burning all those directly and indirectly involved. And it scorches society.
Of course, most who commit adultery don’t have journalists lying in wait to catch them and reveal their infidelity to the world. But even if they are never caught, they are still hurting spouses and children just the same.
In this case of infidelity, John Edwards can kiss good-bye his aspirations of becoming Obama’s vice president.

OH my god, what a nonsense article. Geez. Just look at the example you use about Meg Ryan. Hello, she was cheated on for years and years by her husband Quaid. Not to mention she was the one who ended her relationship with Russell Crowe, not the other way around. But I guess you think the NE is a reliable sourse? Ever realized they only write what SELLS?

This article is riddled with assumptions and errors. It is based on a piece from the National Enquirer, not exactly a bastion of truth or high journalistic standards.

No one knows for sure who ended the Crowe/Ryan romance, as neither has said anything. Crowe has been [from all accounts] happily married and settled down for several years now and is father to two young boys.

First of all, I couldn’t care less about the Meg Ryan/Russell Crowe thing. Second of all, the issue here is the fact that if this story had been about a Republican/Conservative, it would be plastered EVERYWHERE, and you know it!!! All the mainstream media networks would be pulling overtime to cover it just to prove it’s true. Whereas because it’s a Dem, they are not even delving into it. THAT, my friends, is the issue. I don’t normally get my regular news from the NE, but it has been accurate quite a few times about bigger issues and with all the hotel folks backing up this story, I think this one is true. Look at how the MSM ran with the Bush/National Guard story (which turned out to be a hoax) and they kept at it looooong after it had been proven that things were fishy. Y’all know the issue here is MSM bias. When this story does turn out to be true, let’s just see how the MSM whitewashes it. It makes me sick! There are very few real journalists out there anymore. We just have a bunch of libs pushing their agenda down our throats. And then, because conservatives have a few radio shows, y’all get all upset and want to shut them down. Typical!! Free speech for libs, but not for anyone else!!!

Thank you so much Bridget. Yeah. Liberals whine about conservative talk radio, but they get a free ride with most of the mainstream media. It is very sickening. They cry for free speech but don’t want to hear anyone else’s point of view. Free speech for everyone unless they interfere with liberal agendas.
I wish people wouldn’t buy into the rhetoric of conservative= racist and intellectual= liberal. Yeah, there may be conservatives who are racist, and intellectuals who are liberal. But it makes me annoyed when people think that if you believe that a baby actually has the right to be born you are uneducated. It would seem with all of the education people claim to have, they would be smarter. But they buy into this “If you are educated, you’re liberal” crap. It’s so stupid.
What happened to free speech in America? Please help to make sure Obama doesn’t shut down what little say conservatives have in the US!!! He’ll use whatever euphemism he needs to use to shut down conservatives, like calling censureship of conservatives “fairness” though people should be able to talk about right and wrong as if they really exist–because they actually do exist, even if people call anything with a reference to God “closed-minded” or “uneducated.

I believe in being educated, but I never want to start thinking that I’m smarter than God.
