And facts cannot compete with one another I mean this John Edwards trial is on -- real it's it's like it's like The National Enquirer.
Page after page after page.
Yeah that's exactly right but that's not what the case is about and this is the problem I have with the media coverage here I come incredibly enough.
Here in defense and some sense -- John Edwards is a total sleaze ball but I do not think is is guilty.
The alleged crime here -- telling think it's a crime prosecution is saying that pain.
You're -- mistress money is a campaign.
Expense and therefore if someone.
Give you money to do that.
That's illegal donation to your campaign the very least -- of murky area of the law and never should have been prosecuted and I believe it's being prosecuted.
By the very fact that John Edwards is such an unsympathetic.
Character and -- probably get him they sell it unsympathetic he's lying about so many things.
But that's not what he's on trial for.
So what you're saying is that it's it's the morality issue here not a criminal here.
Correct now it might feel finally here classic pointing that out though.
Who well -- you're saying that maybe I'm not gonna exclude myself from the mainstream media but what is it that you think is is the deficit on the cover.
Well who who wants to defend John Edwards and everyone believes he's a sleaze ball so there's a sense.
Among -- and I must be guilty of something.
You'll -- of moral offenses and two.
Why are you gonna get incident the details of the law here or a campaign finance regulations.
When you can cover every day.
The revelations about this incredibly sleazy affair all the headlines yesterday about the testimony where that he called -- Al hunter this terrible name.
You know and that's great top tabloid fodder but again it's really irrelevant to what he's being charged.
How important and I would bring jail and a conversation and find me how important is that that fifth nationally.
We're having this conversation I mean presidential candidates are supposed to be different side.
I think it's sad that we're having this.
This display and and that it's being.
Put out under the guise.
You know -- -- broke the law.
And I agree that -- it's it's -- a lot of finance a lot of campaign law is murky.
So how would you like to see the coverage change.
Well I'd like to see more focus on the law and the fact they probably didn't make it at the very -- least this is a very passable.
Case that gets into murky area and prosecutors if you're in America area.
Prosecutors the doctor leniency says you just don't go there and if congress wants to explicitly make it.
Part of your campaign to have a mistress -- -- -- campaign events to give her money let's have a debate on the floor of congress must pass the law.
So is there in the black and black and white and everyone knows it but to have a creative prosecutor in effect extending the law there.
Just because he wants to get this reprehensible.
-- -- the Democrats wanted to put one heartbeat away from the presidency which I think is still extraordinary.
Well that's not the way to do it have congress actually passed a law -- explicitly know where the line -- and I think it be absurd to have mistresses part of campaigns.
That sort on the face of your last thought well.
Oh I'm I'm not for mistresses being paid I -- I don't want to tell you realize that I -- -- and I mean it when I made a candidate I -- is there anything in your life that you don't wanna see on page three of the New York Post.
Because if there is you we we need to hear about it right now.
If you -- -- ever honestly answer now.
You only thing -- always investigate -- Wednesday before I -- to erect one of the things that I've noticed that's missing and and I'm glad to answer.
I haven't seen a lot of back and forth a lot of Democrats on this issue.
I mean maybe I'm missing it -- -- yeah well they just wanted it.
Ignore that -- I -- is it isn't still incredible to believe that he is a very serious presidential candidate.
Twice and he could have been vice president the United States and even in 08 you know he was angling to be -- year attorney general offers something and it's incredible fraud.
