Don’t be surprised if you hear less from John Stanton out of left-wing media in the foreseeable future.
Why? Stanton’s penchant for speaking candidly, as he did yesterday on Bill Press’s radio show about embattled former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s resignation from Congress only weeks after winning re-election.
Press told BuzzFeed’s Washington bureau chief of bumping into Jackson at George Washington University Hospital back in June after Press popped a hernia, Jackson telling Press he was “feeling a little under the weather.”
“The last time anybody saw Jesse Jackson Jr. in this city,” Press added, “and I didn’t realize that was the beginning of a long saga which ended over the weekend when he resigned from the United States Congress. Why?”
