Bingo.  You hit the nail on the head, Jim.  Dog bites man is not news.  Man bites dog IS news.

The answer to this is to look at history:

Eisenhower had his "secretary"

JFK boffed anything with skirts--in or out of the white house (Maybe thats
why he had a bad back!)

Johnson had "friends" all over.

etc. etc.

The difference is that in times past the media was respectful of privacy.
Now anything goes--just to get a story and beat the competition.  Don't even
have to have the facts right--just print something.
