Considering the advantages and opportunities of senators and other high-profile politicians, I think it's naive to assume that this is an unusual circumstance.

I want the FBI to conduct a thorough background check into these allegations.



Come to think of it, I might've been at one of those back in the day, I sorta think I could've been plus there were totally like 5 or 6 others there, too,......maybe.

Heck, goes way back to the '70s when Jimmy Carter's chief of staff Hamilton Jordan was credibly accused of pretty much the same thing. It made the headlines for a few news cycles, there was a perfunctory [airquotes and in my best Dr. Evil voice] "in-vest-i-gation" [/airquotes] that remarkable never found what they didn't want to find... and it all blew over.

I don't normally cite Wikipedia, but since their account pretty much matches my recollection...

"...n 1976 Jordan's youth and casual style gave him a media reputation as a fun-loving, partying, unsophisticated "good ole boy." This turned into a problem during the last year of the Carter administration, when Jordan became a lightning rod for critics of the president across the political spectrum. The media repeated rumors of coarse and even criminal behavior by Jordan, including supposed cocaine usage and anonymous sex at the infamous Studio 54 disco in New York City. Though extensive legal investigations failed to substantiate any of the rumors, Jordan later recalled this as a particularly painful time in his life.[6]

According to one often repeated story from this period, Jordan stared at the breasts of the Egyptian ambassador's wife at a Washington reception and remarked, "I have always wanted to see the pyramids".[7] The story was told in various versions, all based on anonymous sources. Jordan denied it ever took place in his memoir No Such Thing as a Bad Day.[6] CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite later recalled that the network's coverage of the cocaine allegations against Jordan was the "worst story he had ever broadcast."[8]
- Wikipedia "Hamilton Jordan".


So, Cronkite lamented having to do a story that reflected badly on a Democrat. Nope, no media bias there. LOL.

Democrat Senator Chris Coons attended wealthy Tower Hill prep school in Wilmington, Delaware, where he graduated in the class of 1981.

Chris Coons’ mother married the Gore-Tex waterproof clothing magnate. After moving into a massive ten-thousand square foot mansion, While Chris Coons’ mother and his stepfather would go to Europe, Senator Coons would host “wild ragers” with “booze kegs” and “white powder.”

“Women were everywhere in bikinis,” former Tower Hill classmate of Coons recalled.


In bikinis? Well, that's kinda dull. But at least it takes me off the hook for (possibly) supplying the strippers.

When EXACTLY was this, anyway??? Headline implies that as "Senator" he threw such parties. Article implies it could have been anytime '81 onwards. He wasn't senator until 2010.

This certainly wasn't the first I've heard of it either, nor was it confined to one political party.

Well, at least it’s specific. Any actual accusers?



First paragraph from the article:

Quote

Democrat Senator Chris Coons threw parties at where cocaine was widely available in addition to wild drinking and petty crime, according to two former classmates of Coons.


I know, details are hard to remember...

Okay, I'll be that "bad guy" here. And Flame Away, I've got FR-rated fire-retardant clothing.

Yes, of course, he had a political opinion, and it showed when he was doing stories that were obviously political in nature. IMHO that's fine, I can accept the bias and adjust accordingly. Just as when listening to, say, Hannity, one has to make adjustments to get to the "Whole" story.

Outside of that? He was reasonably unbiased.

FAR DIFFERENT than today's crowd of (so-called) journalists, who seemingly can't do a story about a fireman rescuing a cat from a tree without SOMEHOW turning it into something political.

He sure had you fooled?

Big difference between Hannity or Tucker Carlson and Cronkite. Cronkite was supposed to be a news reporter and report the facts - without bias – as much as that is possible. Hannity and Carlson don’t pretend to be unbiased. They are opinion journalist. They tell you upfront what their bias is. Back in the day, the big 3 networks let you think they were unbiased. Now we know they weren’t. Which is why at least having CNN, MSLSD, Fox and the rest to select from gives you the right to choose what bias you want to consume.
