… we’d never hear the end of it.
Every abuses authority. Everybody. That’s why we can’t trust authority, and that’s why we need effective checks and balances.
The media is supposed to be one of those checks, but they are so transparently biased they regularly fail in that role.
If this had happened under a Republican administration, the media would question and badger and investigate and whine and moan for months.
The liberal media will “cover” it. They’ll mention it. They’ll say it was a bad thing. Then they’ll move on.
The difference is often not in whether or not they cover a story, but in how they cover it, and how dogged they are in pursuing it.
