If You Don’t Think ‘Jailbait Hookers’ Is Headline News, You Don’t Know News

Posted on | January 31, 2013 | 40 Comments

When the major news networks ignored the FBI raid on the Miami doctor who bankrolled Sen. Robert Menendez’s trips to the Dominican Republic, I was frankly stunned. No matter how liberal your bias may be, the allegation that Menendez was banging underage hookers during his Caribbean expeditions is irresistible as news.

There is nothing in mere politics than can equal the power of a sex scandal to make people pay attention.

And dude: Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee? It’s almost as good as a sex scandal with a congressman named Weiner.

So, how did the Senator — who was all about empowering women and youth — like his hookers? Of course, he liked ‘em young and fresh:

In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.
“That Senator also likes the youngest and newest girls,” the woman wrote on April 21, 2002, according to an English translation provided to The Daily Caller by a native Spanish speaker.

Could anything possibly be more newsworthy than that? How about the Senator’s (allegedly) exotic tastes for foreign women?

Another email string has been released naming some of the prostitutes involved with Dr. Melgen and Senator Menendez. Of the 4 prostitutes named, 2 were Dominican, 1 Russian, and another Colombian.

Yes, the names — Geraldine, La Honey, Yaneisy and Svetlana — conjure images of an international sexual smorgasbord assembled for the Senator’s prurient pleasure by his Miami patron. And you want to tell me that’s not newsworthy? Turn in your press credentials, clean out your desk and find another line of work, because you clearly have no aptitude for the news business.

    There’s a new angle: Jerry Sandusky-like. Apparently, the good Senator from NJ liked little boys too. Of course, right blogs are way ahead of the story, ONCE AGAIN, on this angle. Will the MSM catch up?

    Looking for another explosive cover-up? ED RENDELL. There’s a lot there, if some investigative journalist just looked in the right places. They went after Sandusky, but ignored Rendell.

    It does more than that Stacy, MUCH MORE. As Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committe, it put Menendez at direct risk for intelligence blackmail.

    Most media outlets abandoned that long ago to become the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. So of course they wouldn’t consider this news, because it’s unfavorable to a Democrat.

    NBC and other media would prefer to make up news rather than cover misdeeds of Dems.

    When Michael Kinsley attended his first editorial meeting at the LA Times, a local story about someone being beheaded was put on the Metro section, leading him to ask, “How many people do you have to behead to get on the front page?”

    I’d ask, apropos of Menendez, “How many child prostitutes does a Senator have to sleep with to get on the front page?”

    “conjure images of an international sexual smorgasbord assembled for the Senator’s prurient pleasure by his Miami patron.”

    Oh, yeah! Look in your tip jar, Stacy! This is worth paying for!

    Why do you keep acting like the press is in the business of reporting news? They’re not; they’re in the business of servicing the needs of the Party.

  • Earl Scruggs

    How does it go in Atlas Shrugged? Check your premises? You are making the mistake of taking their word for being in the news business. That isn’t what they are there for. There are there to keep you from knowing the news, or knowing the wrong news, anyway. They are there to make sure you get the right news.

    So is he poorly endowed or just really selfish in bed? We report, you decide.

    It seems liberal reporters these days are deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to THEIR politicians.

    Well the lamestream media is falling down on the job, but That is why we have Rule 5

    How could you blackmail him with something that has already been made public?

  • http://wizbangblog.com/ Adjoran

    News? You think this is NEWS? The only possible consequence for Menendez is he’ll have to skip his vacations for a year or so until things cool down.

    As to consequences, remember Teddy. A Democrat can leave a girl to drown without any. Republicans must take care how they hold their feet in public restrooms.

    True the lamestream media have their own agenda in protecting their Democrat cronies, but There is always Rule 5!

    Well not now, but the point is he could have been blackmailed before it was made public. That is the whole issue why putting yourself in these positions as a public official with a security clearance is a very bad idea.

    If he wasn’t a public official he wouldn’t qualify for a clearance. I speak from personal experience.

    Exactly. They won’t make the same mistake they made with Weiner.

    You know that, and I know that, but there seem to be a lot of folks -many of them in our own party- who don’t seem to have figured that out yet.
