Fox News Confirms Enquirer’s story!

John Edwards Love Child

It’s now “officially” news: Fox News has confirmed the National Enquirer’s story of cornering John Edwards at the Beverly Hilton.

UPDATES #1 and #2 at end of original story.

Perhaps all of the MSM reporters and editors who decided that this story was “beneath” them, because it came from the National Enquirer, can stop wiping egg off their faces and get busy earning their paychecks–by reporting, instead of deciding what’s right for their readers.

See? It really did happen, just the way it was reported.

A hotel security guard told he intervened this week between a man he identified as former Sen. John Edwards and tabloid reporters who chased down the former presidential hopeful after what they’re calling a rendezvous with his mistress and love child.

The Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards — whom he did not immediately recognize — in a hotel men’s room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door.

“What are they saying about me?” the guard said Edwards asked.

“His face just went totally white,” the guard said, when Edwards was told the reporters were shouting out questions about Edwards and Rielle Hunter, a woman the National Enquirer says is the mother of his child.

The guard said he escorted Edwards, who was not a registered guest at the hotel, out of the building after 2 a.m. Edwards did not say anything while he was escorted out, said the guard, adding that at times the reporters on the scene were “rough on him,” sticking a camera in his face and shouting questions.

The guard did not recognize Edwards at the time of the incident, but said he concluded it was the 2008 presidential hopeful after hearing reports about the incident and finding an Enquirer reporter’s notebook at the scene.
