It's a strange industry, a byproduct of the need for public trust and credibility in this fast-moving age of scandal, where information and evidence is disseminated so quickly, the cover up has been replaced by the clean up – the independent investigation.
Five years ago, then-up-and-coming Democrat Eliot Spitzer got caught patronizing prostitutes and resigned as the governor of New York. The salacious scandal made national news for weeks. The Emperors Club VIP prostitution service's former Client #9 spent a good portion of the interim doing daily penance leading up to his primary run last year for New York City comptroller, the second-most powerful position in the Big Apple. He lost anyway.

As Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper, rapist and baby killer, shuffled off in chains to the hoosegow, I thought, why was there so little reportage or commentary about his idiotic statement made in an Ohio courtroom?
Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who resigned amid a scandal involving prostitutes, headed out to a Manhattan charter school on Tuesday to film his latest campaign ad for comptroller, filling the classroom and his film's background with students as young as age 5.
Tucker Carlson and Gretchen Carlson of Fox News interviewed Emily Miller about the Democratic leadership not commenting on the how Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Deigo Mayor Bob Filner treat women.

Tucker Carlson and Alisyn Camerota of Fox News interviewed Emily Miller about whether Democrats are waging the real war on women by refusing to condemn the behavior of Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Deigo Mayor Bob Filner.
Anthony Weiner is the comic relief the culture has been waiting for, sexualized politics without a moral message. Salacious texting, a parody of sensual touching, doesn't depend on the meaning of "is" or "was."
Democrats launched the "war on women," but they didn't first sweep their side of the battlefield for land mines. Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner have dominated the headlines for their atrocious disrespect and sexual harassment of women.
