The Story the Media Won't Touch

Pam points out how how the Miami Herald did an entire article on all the intrigue surrounding Charlie Crist and his consideration as John McCain's running mate.

The discussion of the gay rumors about Crist -- and what they mean in this context --is everywhere, being read about by millions of people on web sites and blogs. Even if not true, it's a story for the media to cover. And yet, they won't touch it because they think saying people are gay -- or revealing that about someone, or just speculating on it -- is the most horrible thing imaginable, even when it's relevant.
