What Liberal Media?


Which Republican U.S. Congressman had a dead aide found in his office while the media was hounding Democrat U.S. Congressman Gary Condit about his missing ex-intern, Chandra Levy?


Joe Scarborough

  • Conservative Republican that served from 1994-2001

  • Represented northwest Florida

  • Never served in the military

  • Rock and Roll musician

  • A dead female aide was found in his Florida office at the same time Democrat Congressman Gary Condit was under intense national media scrutiny

  • ONLY ONE NEWSPAPER IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES COVERED THIS DRAMA -- The NW Florida Daily News (Ft. Walton Beach) wrote 21 articles about the death of Lori Klausutis.  Joe's hometown newspaper, the Pensacola News Journal only ran three brief articles buried within the newspaper.

  • Listed below are links to other websites and other information on Scarborough and Lori Klausutis.

All Hat No Cattle Editorial: 9-15-01


Republican stronghold gives kid-glove treatment to local U.S. Congressman Joe Scarborough


     When this story first broke in the Florida panhandle, we wondered if we were in store for some Gary Condit-style media coverage. Needless to say, this story never made national TV.  The big boys of broadcast had their sights set solely on Condit and had no time to cover the unusual death of a healthy, politically active 28-year-old female aide in a U.S. Congressman's district office.

     The so-called Liberal national media -- quite the opposite in this instance as in so many others -- felt it was more important to keep plucking feathers from their latest Democrat goose than to ruffle the feathers of a Republican Congressman who unexpectedly resigned just a few months after being reelected. Now an aide had been found dead in his office, but the national news media simply weren't interested.

     After all was said and done, a few things became quite clear.  The authorities, mainly the police who investigated the scene, gave the appearance of a cover-up by immediately stating that there were no signs of foul play. It subsequently was revealed that the dead woman had a wound to her forehead, which seemed to fly in the face of the initial statements by investigators. If this wasn't an example of poor police work, it most certainly was a case of bumbled media and public relations.

     How could police rule out foul play until they knew the cause of the wound, before an autopsy was conducted and toxicology tests performed?

     The local newspaper, the Northwest Florida Daily News, tried to get information from local authorities and claimed they were sandbagged at every turn .  No one suggested that the Congressman had anything to do with the death, but the manner in which authorities handled the press shows one thing.  They gave the benefit of the doubt to the popular Republican Congressman, and it is doubtful they would have done the same for any ordinary Joe.
