Breaking News?

Apparently a now defunct affair from two years ago by former presidential primary loser John Edwards is breaking news. How is that breaking news? Who cares? The press has known about this relationship for ages. Who cared about it then and why can’t I get anything valuable from CNN? King and Blitzer should get real jobs! Why is Edwards deserving so much scrutiny all of a sudden? How many mistresses did Guiliani have? How many ex-wives does Sarkozy have? How many (very open to the press though not to the public) relationships has Bill Clinton had since he left office (not including the ones in office) and no one has since mentioned them? Did John McCain start his relationship with his second wife before he divorced his first one? Who knows, who cares?
