Today’s Washington Times editorial observes the same lack of interest we have noted among the mainstream media in what would otherwise be a huge scandal:
Where is the New York Times? Where is The Washington Post? Where are CBS and NBC? A whistleblower makes explosive allegations about the Department of Justice; his story is backed by at least two other witnesses; and the allegations involve the two hot-button issues of race and of blatant politicization of the justice system. A potential constitutional confrontation stemming from the scandal brews between the Justice Department and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. A congressman highly respected for thoughtfulness and bipartisanship has all but accused the department of serious impropriety. By every standard of objective journalism, this adds up to real news.
Or it would be real news if a Republican Justice Department stood accused. It would be real news if the liberal media weren’t mostly in the tank for our celebrated but failing first black president.
A Google News search on “New York Times New Black Panther Party” still won’t retrieve any New York Times story, but it will now bring up this Washington Times editorial in addition to my own posts.
