ABC: Most of 'DC madam' clients aren't 'newsworthy'

Palfrey: Former escort committed suicide after arrest

On ABC's 20/20, Deborah Jeane Palfrey spoke about the upscale escort service that she ran in Washington D.C., which has captivated the nation's capital as many wonder what possible power brokers may have been on the clientele list.

Palfrey said that the authorities aren't interested in the list of reportedly 1,000 names of her former clients that the "DC madam" turned over to ABC. Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias resigned last Friday "twenty-four hours after confirming to 20/20" that he'd been a client, and admitted to receiving massages from an escort.

According to ABC, most of the names just aren't "newsworthy." While reports indicated that ABC would reveal at least two client's names, no new ones were revealed, including the name of the president of a conservative think tank, who was alluded to in earlier reports.

"The phone numbers also track back to Georgetown mansions and prominent CEOs, officials at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and lobbyists both Republican and Democratic," ABC's Brian Ross reported.

Ross added, "But as usually is the case in Washington, much of it is dull. There were no members of Congress that we could find in these phone records, no White House officials."

I think the press does a good job of hiding what it doesn't want the public to see.
