    Two possible responses come to mind:

    (1) There’s more information published about a candidate than there is about a non-candidate? How unprofessional!

    (2) A gossip rag is providing biased, unbalanced political information? Dear God, what is this world coming to?

    I cannot believe I am about to agree with you here; however, Mrs. Edwards was on some cover with a title “shame of John.”

  6. Boy, they are really reaching now… « The Moratorium Site Says:

    […] they are really reaching now… We spoke earlier about US weekly and their bias.  Well, they are really reaching now- reporting that Sarah Palin […]
