Among rivals, WSJ slow-mos RNC erotic club story

[Picture worth 1,000 words: Voyeur's homepage tells the story]

I watched The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post and USA Today as the Republican National Committee mini-scandal unfolded yesterday over a nearly $2,000 night at faux bondage club Voyeur in Los Angeles. The WSJ appeared to be the last one to post a story, and their coverage seems anemic -- especially alongside the Post's Dan Eggen. That slow-mo coverage adds fuel to the perception that the Journal's Washington Bureau is now tinged with partisan politics.

But the biggest winner's got to be the club itself: Talk about free publicity!
