8. The story isn't spreading.... fast as some would like:

John Kerry Sex Scandal: U.S. Media Blackout?


"According to news reports across the Internet and in various international publications, Democratic Presidential front-runner John Kerry may have had an extramarital affair with a 22-year old blonde intern."


"But the real story today may be the lack of coverage by the major American news media.

According to a story published today in, "A source at one of the major television networks (said) that they are specifically forbidden to talk about (the Kerry sex scandal) on the air until one of the other major television networks reports on it first."

A quick search on Google News at this hour shows that only two major U.S. newspapers are running stories on the emerging Kerry sex scandal: The Philadelphia Daily News and the Chicago-Sun Times."
