Wicked Commentary

Three scandals, two opposite reactions from media

 Last week the press zeroed in on the Penn State scandal. Almost immediately after the story broke they were calling for Joe Paterno’s firing. Even Paterno felt the heat saying he would resign at the end of the season. That would not be good enough for the media.

I’ll stand by ya buddy through thick or thin.

In Fast and Furious, since the story broke, that same media has yet to call for Holder’s resignation. They don’t even address it with the passion it deserves. They don’t question if Holder can survive as Attorney General. And they don’t suggest on air he should step aside in view of the obvious facts in Fast and Furious. “What did you know and when did you know it” is not even heard from the ranks of the media.

No comment. Excuse me while I pick my nose while I’m thinking of an answer.

Then there is Solyndra-gate. A deal cuts out reimbursement of taxpayer money, forfeiting 535 million on what was a terrible deal in the first place. It should not have happened. First media pretty much ignored the story, and then would not call for the resignation of Secretary Chu. No, that may have made sense, just for an opening gesture. If we lost the money in the scandal, then at least they could want accountability to the public. But no!  No cries of outrage. No screams of punishing those involved who let the deal go down, and those that wrote the taxpayers out of the contract. You’d think they could be outraged like everyone else. Again, no!

What could I have known?  It’s like, one person is telling me to go this way. The other person tells me to go the other way. You can see how confusing this all was, but I can’t name anyone because Eric Holder told me I can lie or say nothing existed.  So there all you dummies!  I don’t know one damn thing about Solyndra except that is was one great program for us Greenies and that’s all that matters.

You’d think the media wanted to know why such a bad deal was allowed to go forward when everyone knew it was destined to fail. After the scandal broke, they reluctantly covered it as if dragged against their will to pay it attention.

In Penn State’s case, MSM will not be satisfied with any action. Half a dozen people are fired, including Paterno, the president of the University, and much of the athletic department. I heard echoes from media that the rest of the season should be canceled. And if they had a shot at a bowl they should decline it.

Yep, we sure screwed this play up. Now I bite the dust. If only I had done the right thing, but  football was way more important than those little boys being sexually assaulted. My bad.

I’m just saying I wish they had even part of that reaction to the other two scandals. But of course, with Fast and Furious Holder denied even knowing about it, too little media outrage. Last week he said he cannot be expected to know the details of every program under the Justice department. It’s a big department, he suggests. Not “all the details”, just admit knowing the program existed and what the results were, as head of the Justice Department. Countless emails he had about the program, but they should not necessarily mean he saw them himself. And where is the media outrage about the incompetence of the guy at the head of the DOJ?

Who Me?  What did I know? I’m too busy suing Arizona and Alabama to read my email. And my underlings don’t tell me anything.  How could I be held responsible for this dumb program?   And Brian Terry is just collateral damage. Why should I call and apologize to his parents for anything?

I think it is safe to assume that if anything happened to Holder, he would be hailed a victim and collateral damage. It would be too bad if public outrage forced Holder out or forced Chu out. That would be overreacting, and might cause an unnecessary media frenzy.

That is why they are going after Penn State they need something to distract people, a fall guy. We wouldn’t hear much if anything about Penn State if Bush were still there.
