No bias in the so-called mainstream press?
Did you see ABC News’ Jonathan Karl question White House spokesman Eric Schultz on how he can state the Obama administration doesn’t make deals with terrorists when they traded five Taliban prisoners in exchange for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl?
If you were watching ABC News, you wouldn’t have seen it. They wouldn’t want to embarrass the administration. But I have it for you if you, click here.
Clearly, it had to be Schultz’s most embarrassing day, but if I worked for ABC News I would be even more embarrassed.
and Charles Krauthammer commented
“(The Taliban) slits throats, it attacks buses, it drives car bombs into markets and it’s not a terrorist group? The idea that the United States would not do this (respond to terrorist demands) is preposterous … this is fantasy.”
Democrat senator takes slap at Fox News
During the C-Span coverage of the Senate Judicial Committee’s hearing on attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-CA) took the opportunity to take a slap at Fox News and others in response to remarks made about actions of the current AG, Eric Holder, during testimony. Click here to hear the pompous Whitehouse, a defender of Holder, say that the hearing was “a soundbite factory for Fox News and conspiracy theorists everywhere.” He said, “There are plenty other forums where the attorney general would have an opportunity to defend himself …” Unfortunately, Holder refuses to answer to charges brought against him in those forums.
Wall Street Journal plays catch up
It was nice to see the Wall Street Journal editorial staff finally comment on the IRS hiring of CGI Federal to handle its ObamaCare tax program in its Jan. 29, edition, “Failing Up in ObamaCare.” You may recall that I brought this to your attention in my Jan, 23, post, “Piecing together the costly health insurance website.” Just seven months after CGI failed miserably in developing the ObamaCare website for HHS with a near billion dollar price tag, the IRS “rewarded” them with a $4.6 million contract, said the Journal. While the exposure of this government mismanagement will give this story the audience it needs, the Journal stopped short of recommending the following of proper procurement procedures and closer oversight.
