N.Y. Times vs. John Edwards


The NY Times has a video montage up on for their story in Sunday’s paper on presidential candidates and their minor children. The video focuses soley on John Edwards and is pretty sad. It starts with John Edwards scolding his son Jack for not behaving in front of a reporter and ends with a story from the 2004 campaign were Jack’s best friends on the trail were reporters who taught Jack to play poker.

The actual article is more balanced and has examples from the families of Obama, Dodd, Thompson, and Brownback. But, from the way the Times edited this little video, it makes the Edwards experience look pretty bleak.
