DC Media Rumormill: Juicy Political Sex Scandal

Ron Rosenbaum titillates with a juicy political sex scandal that "everyone knows" the LA Times is sitting on:
So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. “Everyone knows” meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. “Sitting on it” because the paper couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.
So, it must be about a Democrat, right, because the MSM kept their finger in the dike for Slick Willy as long as they could? Maybe, and maybe not.

Maybe the subject is a Republican and the elite journos are hoping he wins the nomination. Then, BOOM, we have another October surprise similar to what our unbiased media pulled on Dubya...twice.
