You don't think they're capable of it?
Breitbart.com makes a very valid point today: Mainstream Media Fail to Break Even One of Four Obama Scandals
Well, if it is Thursday, there must be a new Obama scandal. But …whatever that scandal is, you can bet the American mainstream media will be playing catch up and not carrying the glory of breaking a story about a major White House scandal...
This is true enough and not surprising. But more important is Breitbart’s pointing out
…our pathetic, American, lapdog mainstream media is not responsible for breaking even a single one.
IRS? Nope, not our guys. The IRS broke their own scandal with a planted question
The Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press phone records? Nope, not our guys. Believe it or not, the Associated Press didn’t even break that story. Like the IRS, we only found out because the Justice Department outted itself in a letter notifying the AP of what it had done.
Q: Whenever would any Government voluntarily touch off major scandals so damaging to itself?
A: When it is trying to smuggle through a massive politically transforming Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration Bill, worse than those only defeated in the Bush era by unprecedented uproar from the Grassroots. These scandals are sucking the oxygen out of the opposition process.This stratagem was flagged in Hinderaker, Powerline: Gang Bill More Important Threat To America Than Scandals. It is being extremely successful – the Drudge Report where I found this story had nothing at the time on Amnesty.
Those struggling past all the posturing about these controversies need also to ask themselves” “Cui bono”?
