Today on the way home from work, I was listening to right winger Howie Carr of WRKO out of Boston on the radio. He stated that the New York Post was reporting the reason why Caroline Kennedy dropped out of her Senate bid was because of tax/nanny issues and because Kennedy’s marriage was on the rocks and that she was ‘linked’ to Arthur Sulzburger of the New York Times. My first thought was, “hmmmmm…that’s kind of interesting”, but then a few minutes later Howie said (paraphrasing), “You’re not going to believe this….but guess what paragraph is now missing from the New York Post article on this subject?” and then he chuckled and said, “You betcha! The one about Kennedy having relations with Sulzburger!”.
Honestly, I don’t care whether Caroline Kennedy is the next US Senator of New York or not or what her reasons are today as to why she dropped out of her Senate bid shortly after Hillary Clinton was confirmed as the Secretary of State. I like Caroline and I wish her well. But! I’m wondering why the New York Post put Sulzburger’s name in their article (linked above) in the first place, why Howie quickly reported it (he consistently refers to NYP articles on his show and links to them on his website and he reported this info in the first hour of his show which runs from 3-7pm EST), and then…..everything is gone in connection with it. Weird. It almost seemed like a set up to me. Not sure if that is what was going on, but the whole thing just seemed so strange. Also tonight, Chris Matthews of MSNBC had a quest on his 5pm EST show who talked about the ‘Caroline relationship’ and Matthews instantly said (paraphrasing), “I don’t want to hear what the blogs are saying….we don’t do that here”. Say wha? Matthews knew what she was referring too (I could tell just by the look on his face), but instantly made it seem as if it was the blogs who started the rumor and not a paper such as the New York Post! Unfreakingbelievable.
Is Caroline Kennedy having an affair or are the right wingers of America up to their old tricks again? Inquiring minds want to know.
