Here’s the background, a for months it has been reported that Ms Kennedy’s marriage is on the “Outs”

“Obama recently named Caroline to his vice presidential search committee – and she’s been telling friends that if he’s elected to the White House, she wants to move to Washington, D.C., and take a role in his Democratic administration,” a friend revealed.

“But the reality is that this plan is dulling the pain of her personal problems. Insiders believe that her marriage to Ed Schlossberg is pretty much over.”

As The ENQUIRER previously reported in July 2006, the couple is living “separate lives.” Caroline’s told Ed she’s moving on and he’s accepted it.

Yes the source of the above is the National Enquirer but they did get the John Edwards story right. It is also true that Pinch, has recently become a “free man.” Now Gawker is reporting that the NY Times is Not allowing any discussion of a possible Kennedy/Sulzberger affair:

Times City Room Will Not Mention Caroline Kennedy’s Special Friendship With Pinch Sulzberger By Pareene

Don’t even bother to leave a comment at the Times local news blog suggesting a sexy patrician affair between the Senator-to-be and the publisher of the Times. It seems like a mostly legitimate question to ask, doesn’t it? Whether or not they’re having sexy sexy old rich scion sex, the special friendship between Sulzberger and Kennedy is well-documented. And when the publisher of your paper is BFF with a public figure, asking whether that friendship affects coverage of that public figure is certainly fair game. But no, no comments allowed asking about the affair. When this guy tried, the City Room editors asked him to please not bring it up again. “we don’t report stuff like this, regardless of the people involved.” Stuff like… what? The Times certainly does report on the sexual lives of public figures, all the damn time, from Giuliani to Spitzer to Paterson. But reporting on the Sulzbergers not so much.

Anyway now obv you should all head over to the City Room blog and spam them with thousands of comments about this terrible coverup. (Don’t actually do that, it would be really annoying.)
