Chappaquiddick All But Ignored In Ted's Obits

4o years ago last month, Edward Kennedy left Mary Jo Kopechne to die in that Chappaquiddick canal and then wrapped himself in the Kennedy mystique and the corrupt Massachusetts court system to cover up his drunken, immoral and cowardly behavior.

And, incredibly, he got away with it.

Until yesterday.

Here's a quick review of how the press continues to ignore Chappaquiddick. And here are a couple of previous Vital Signs posts dealing with the tragedy: "Ted Kennedy 40 Years After Chappaquiddick" from this past July 20th and "May We Never Forget Chappaquiddick" from 3 years ago.
