The National Enquirer has filed a criminal complaint against the Beverly Hilton, claiming their security detail manhandled Enquirer reporters who were chasing former N.C. U.S. Senator John Edwards all over the basement on Monday. Roger Simon says he doubts the paper would be suing if Edwards weren’t really there as reported. He then asks:
Is this news? The mainstream media seems to think not. They hide behind professionalism, whatever that means, when the extent of their bias has been documented everywhere. Itâ€™s beyond comic. It makes you yearn for the days when reporters were grunts with a high school education. They were more honest.
UPDATE: A security guard supports the story:
The Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards â€” whom he did not immediately recognize â€” 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.
