Edwards apologizes for affair, but denies fathering child

John Edwards acknowledged Friday that he had an extramarital affair with a campaign filmmaker while running for president, ending months of denials of what he had dismissed as "tabloid trash." Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, went on ABC's "Nightline" to deliver a stunning admission: Yes, he had sex with Rielle Hunter, a 44-year-old videographer hired by his campaign. No, he said, he did not father her child.
