Change, Hope and Corruption We Can Believe In™

Great article by Jonah Golberg:

We ain’t seen nothing yet. For starters, the real corruption isn’t what the media are ignoring or downplaying as isolated incidents. It’s what the media are hailing as strokes of bold, inspirational leadership. The White House, as a matter of policy, is rewriting legal contracts, picking winners (mostly labor unions and mortgage defaulters) and singling out losers (evil “speculators”), while much of the media continue to ponder whether Obama is already a greater president than FDR.

If a Republican administration, staffed with cronies from Goldman Sachs and Citibank, were cutting special deals for its political allies, I suspect we’d be hearing fewer FDR analogies and more nouns ending with the suffix “gate.”

    What ever happened to investigative journalism? Really?! Why are there not people who are blowing the lid off of these stories? I truly do not understand these media outlets. Are they so delusional that they honestly cannot see what is going on right in from of them?
