13. ABC News Shielding Cheney after DC Madam Hanging?

Among her known clients were current Louisiana Senator Vitter, and former AIDS Czar Randall Tobias but Dick Cheney's number, reported earlier was summarily un-reported after a turnaround by ABC News.

ABC anchor Sam Donaldson has also been rumored, along with a law partner of Rudy Giuliani, associates of Jack Abramoff's and many more Pentagon, DC and corporate insiders on a list of 10,000 calls.

According to early accounts, ABC News correspondent Brian Ross had the early scoop because Palfrey turned over years-long call lists for his staff to verify. After Cheney turned up on the list, things got "weird" - the story, already on the ABC website was poised to run on 20/20 but suddenly everything went away.

Any mention of Cheney was scrubbed from the ABC website and the 20/20 piece never ran. Vitter and Tobias had already admitted whoring, so the mainstream press carried the DC Madam bust but shied away from mentioning Cheney. The trial was strangely quiet - little coverage and a scheduled Vitter was never subpoaened.
