Fox's Brit Hume Blames Media For Exposing Alabama Governor’s Affair

Hume: Politicians Used To Have Affairs “With Abandon 30 Or 40 Years Ago” But “Journalists Didn’t Cover It”

From the April 10 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier:

BRIT HUME: Well, that's the age old adage, Bret, that “it's not the original offense that will get you in politics. It is trying to cover it up afterwards that does it.” And Bentley's case of course, look at what he's done, it's not something that politicians of every stripe haven't done and used to do kind of with abandon 30 or 40 years ago and people didn't-- a long time ago, people didn't cover it. Journalists didn't cover it, and they never admitted it, and it never came to light. But this is a new age and a new atmosphere when it comes to dealing with women, particularly women who may be your subordinates. And in this new age, you simply don't get away with that kind of stuff anymore, and Bentley's fall from grace is further proof of that.
