Sarah Palin Extramarital Affair? National Enquirer Says Yes!

The National Enquirer is hardly a bastion of great journalism, however lately they have had the stories before anyone else. Their reporting of John Edwards affair scooped the other media outlets and went a long way toward giving them the "street cred" that "real" newspapers have.

Now they have come up with a bit of dirt that could be explosive. The Enquirer reports that Sarah Palin had an extramarital affair with her husband's business partner.

So far the McCain camp is trying to dismiss the charge and has threatened a lawsuit. The Enquirer is sticking by it's story. Here is a statement made to the Huffington Post regarding the issue.
"The National Enquirer's coverage of a vicious war within Sarah Palin's extended family includes several newsworthy revelations, including the resulting incredible charge of an affair plus details of family strife when the Governor's daughter revealed her pregnancy. Following our John Edwards' exclusives, our political reporting has obviously proven to be more detail-oriented than the McCain campaign's vetting process. Despite the McCain camp's attempts to control press coverage they find unfavorable, The Enquirer will continue to pursue news on both sides of the political spectrum."
They may be on to something real!

McCain managed to call off the shmoozing media about his affair with Vicki Iseman by threatening. (I'll bet he threatened access to himself if they reported on it). I doubt he has the same pull with the National Enquirer. National Enquirer, amazingly, has been better, more accurate, truthful and REVEALING lately than corporate.
