Edwards Tries to Squelch Journalism Student's Srory

Long shot presidential candidate John Edwards likes to portray himself as a "man of the people." Evidently, however, Senator Edwards doesn't want folks to know that he decided to locate his Chapel Hill campaign headquarters in an affluent shopping center. Apparently he was so concerned that seeing this story might lead people to draw conclusions about which of the "two Americas" he lives in that Edwards' campaign tried to strong arm a UNC journalism student into killing her story on this very subject, according to an Associated Press story. So we know how seriously free speech and a free press will be valued in Edwards' America. He may not want you to see the story, but we do, so we've posted it here.
