Media-Whore's D'Oevres

Allegedly: "Here are some of the things we've heard about the Vanity Fair story that John Connolly is writing about alleged financier-perv* billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, of whom it is alleged that he retained a procurer of underage girls. Oh my God, we heard that Bill Clinton came into 4 Times Square and told Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter that this expose of Epstein must not run and of course Graydon folded like a paper doll." (Gawker)

"At a time when every move behind each presidential campaign, rumored or real, is spliced and diced on the internet and cable TV, why would the Clintons risk the sort of obloquy such ham-fisted moves invite? Especially when people love you just for being someone other than the current president?" (Portfolio)

"According to a tally provided by a Democrat who monitors campaign expenditures in Iowa, Sen. Barack Obama has spent $2.8M on television and radio advertising since June 25, when he first aired two biographical ads in markets across the state. His return on investment is debatable. Obama's $2.8M traffic total is by far the highest among Democrats. Former Sen. John Edwards has spent a paltry $23,000. Where Edwards used to lead the state by margins in the high-single digits, he is now locked in a three way race with Clinton and Obama." (TheAtlantic)

"Which powerhouse music producer likes to gear up before long sessions in the studio by watching his favorite kind of big-booty porn?" (Gatecrasher)
