Video: Elite Media Mentions Corrupt Vote Bribing for ObamaCare
Posted by iusbvision on February 18, 2010
Morning Joe, the liberal Republican on MSNBC:
CBS actually goes after the Democrats too, so you KNOW its bad:
Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com comments and tells you what details CBS conveniently leaves out:
When CBS Evening News reports on Democratic corruption, we know that the story has gotten legs. Katie Couric and Wyatt Andrews throw in an obligatory “Republicans did it too” moment, but other than about fifteen seconds, the CBS pair keeps the heat on Democrats.
What Andrews misses in his tu quoque is that it was a Republican Congress that admonished Tom DeLay for attempting to trade favors for votes. The GOP may have porked up Congress for a decade and undermined their credibility by doing so, but at least they had some limits and a sense of shame strong enough to publicly rebuke their own leadership for arguably corrupt practices. Couric points out the difference without making it explicit; while Republicans admonished their own leader for these kinds of shenanigans, Democrats don’t feel a need to put on even a pretense of shame.
Of course if Republicans had done enything this brazen, it would be on the elite media constantly.
