"A Washington lobbyist sued The New York Times for $27 million Tuesday over an article that she says gave the false impression she had an affair with Sen. John McCain in 1999.
The newspaper stood by the story.
Vicki L. Iseman filed the defamation suit in U.S. District Court in Richmond. It also names as defendants the Times' executive editor, its Washington bureau chief and four reporters."
--and then there's this--
"...After [the National Enquirer] revealed Edwards' affair with Hunter and published photos of him with the baby, the former North Carolina senator confirmed on national TV that he'd lied to the American public while running for president and had cheated on his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth.
Edwards says he did not father Rielle's baby, but she has privately confided that Edwards is the father..."
So I searched and searched and couldn't find anything about either John Edwards or Rielle Hunter suing the National Enquirer... Hmmmm.
...In a recent CNN poll the American public did put Democrat John Edwards third on the list of 2008's "naughtiest politicians" --after fellow Democrats Rod Blagojevich and Eliot Spitzer. (source)
