    If this had happened in the Clinton White House it would've been front page news:

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1340915/posts

    This guy got a Secret Service press pass using an alias, and he's a gay escort (a.k.a. prostitute) for wealthy people on the side. No story on MSNBC, CNN or Fox News, no coverage on ABC, NBC or CBS, almost no coverage in any of the so-called liberal newspapers.

    This story has as much legs as a circus midget.

    Imagine if he had been denied a press pass by the white house solely on the grounds of his lifestyle and sexual preferences.

    Now that's a story.

    The fact that he is being attacked and ridiculed by the liberal blogs for his lifestyle choices goes to show they are hypocritics to the core and will turn like a pack of hyenas on one their herd (the gays) the moment one attempts to leave the fold and question the party line.

    He's a gay escort??? It's not mentioned in the article

    Also note, that ... the very article you cite is from Free Republic, which is pretty conservative. So how this proves your point that the media is controlled by conservatives is beyond me.

    Indeed. Apparently you haven't been broadening your blog reading base if you missed this latest kerfuffle.

    I didn't cite Free Republic, I merely pointed out the current Blog buzz surrounding Mr. Gannon which IMHO seems to be based on credible research and which is currently circulating among the liberal blogs.

    Much like the Eason Jordan story, this may or may not make its way into the mainstream media based upon its relevence to the greater right/left debate. And like that same story, we'll the mainstream approach it based upon the buzz within the blogosphere, well after the facts have been detailed.

    My guess is we'll see this story first break in the mainstream media on the O'Reilly Factor next week. He'll discuss the very same points I made about the hypocrisy and irrelevence of the sex life surrouding this persona.


    If I'm right, you have to pay me one mill-... no, ONE BILLION dollars!

    Bwaahahaha!

    Guys, lets just give up this facade and admit he's right. Conservatives DO control the media. We just let the NYT, CNN, CBS, and everything else LOOK liberal to fool people. We bias the news to the left so people won't know its REALLY biased to the right. Man, Karl Rove is a genius.

    And secondly, this like a week or two old. It's also interesting how this sex story developed.

    1) On the news it said he worked for a company that dabbled in prono a few years ago

    2)Then it's "he worked for a porn producer"

    3)Then: "he was a porn producer"

    4) Then: "He ran an escort service"

    5) And now its: "He is a gay prostitute"


    A-freakn'-mazing.

    To compare this to the Eason Jordan 'kerfuffle' is an apples and oranges deal. Jordan didn't have to step down, he could have had Davos release the tape.
