We’re discovering more and more shocking things about the private life of Microsoft founder Bill Gates...mainstream media knew about them but decided not to report on them

According to the New York Post, Gates was something of a womanizer and was known for throwing pool parties where he’d invite strippers to swim naked for him and his friends, even after he met his future wife, Melinda. Despite this being a relatively open secret, the folks at the New York Times sat on this information but decided to never cover it:
The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.”

They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates would visit one of Seattle’s all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool,” Wallace wrote.

It was a continuation from his time at Harvard, where he “did like to frequent Boston’s notorious Combat Zone, with its porn shows, strip joints, and prostitutes,” Wallace wrote
This lifestyle continued even after he began dating Melinda.
