You can't make this stuff up...

By way of Vodkapundit is this New York Sun story about:

Ted Kennedy's brother-in-law pleads guilty to political corruption related to Hillary Clinton's campaign, it's revealed that he's been a secret informant to the FBI for years, and oh, by the way, he's also under investigation for trying to lure young girls into his car using a fake police light. But it's not a joke--it's a real story.

It's a great story! You would think this would be all over the news, but as Will points out:
But funny thing--you can't find it much of anywhere. It's nowhere to be seen at CNN.com, even on the Politics page. It's not on the front of the New York Times website, and the only mention within the site is a canned AP story.

Now imagine the media response if this guy was George or Jeb Bush's brother-in-law. Non-stop coverage, lead story on CNN/CBS/NBC/ABC and the NY Times/Washington Post/LA Times...
