Do you recall what was revealed the day that SEIU sicced a mob on the suburban D.C. home of the Bank of America deputy general counsel? Nina Easton filed an illuminating report. The mainstream media are studiously avoiding this story. Readers seeking to keep up with it will have to check in at Big Government with Andrew Marcus on the Obama connection and with Liberty Chick on the unholy SEIU/Media Matters/HuffPo alliance.
Big Journalism reported that the D.C. police escorted the union thugs to the Bank of America lawyer’s home in Chevy Chase. In statements to the Washington Examiner and Big Journalism, the police vehemently denied the BJ report. According to the D.C. police statement posted by the Examiner, the D.C. police “only shadowed the unpermitted march, while in the District of Columbia, to ensure that no one in the march was injured.” Now BJ asks: “As D.C. cops fine-tune their story, where’s the Washington Post on the SEIU protest at the Bank Of America exec’s home?”
It’s a long question to which I can offer a short answer: Missing in action.
UPDATE: Glenn Reynolds comments regarding the media silence enveloping the SEIU assault on the Bank of America lawyer’s home: “If he were a doctor who performed abortions or a ‘civil rights’ leader they’d be in full-blown have-you-no-decency-sir mode. But since he’s an Enemy Of The Regime, not so much.”
