From Iowahawk via Ace:
Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.
Or, as put in another, less sarcastic way with regards to the Benghazi hearings, from an article at Walter Russell Mead’s Blog Via Meadia:
It’s a good thing all this was done by a Democratic administration; if the GOP had blundered this badly the media universe would be Bengazigate wall to wall. The pack would smell Pulitzers and the hunt would be on.
Of course, Fast & Furious or Obamacare or “green” boondoggles or Pigford or closing Guantanomo, etc, etc; in short, almost anything from the “most transparent” administration in history would’ve provided just as much proof.
