Edwards Slammed By Foxes

Media Matters - Gibson radio show executive producer: Edwards "whored his wife's cancer as a fundraising gimmick": "On the August 3 edition of Fox News host John Gibson's nationally syndicated radio program, the show's executive producer, who goes by the name 'Angry Rich' on the program, claimed Democratic presidential candidate former Sen. John Edwards (NC) 'whored his wife's cancer as a fundraising gimmick.' He also went on to call him 'a fraud' and 'a pansy.' Gibson referred to Edwards as 'the Breck Girl,' 'Silky,' and 'the biggest fraud running for president.' Gibson and 'Angry Rich' were attacking Edwards for saying that Democratic candidates should give back campaign contributions from News Corp., the parent company of Fox News Channel, while accepting advance and expense money from HarperCollins, another News Corp. division that had published a book written by Edwards; Gibson played an audio clip of Edwards stating that money was donated to charity. They also attacked Edwards for his refusal earlier this year to participate in a debate co-sponsored by Fox News..."

I'll say it again-- if he can't be president, make him Attorney General. That just might cause tight sphincters in certain quarters (pun very intended).
