The media would love to help the Democrats with their “culture of corruption” campaign theme; unfortunately, the facts aren’t cooperating very well. Which didn’t stop CBS News from doing its best, in this story about the Justice Department standing firm on the documents seized from Congressman William Jefferson:
Top law enforcement officials at the Justice Department and the FBI indicated to their counterparts at the White House that they could not, and were unwilling to, return documents to the Louisiana Republican which were seized as part of a bribery investigation.
Jefferson is, of course, a Democrat. It’s common for news stories about scandals involving Congressional Democrats to omit any reference to their party, but this really is going too far!
