Score another one for the Fourth Estate
So let me get this all straight. ABC’s Brian Ross says he has a list of clients from a DC madam, and they include people “at the Pentagon, lobbyists, others at the White House, prominent lawyers — a long, long list.” But he only wants to report on the names from 2002 to the present. Hmm. That date seems significant for some reason. The news outlets and some lefty bloggers/commenters go ape over the idea of Republicans ordering whores.
Then, it turns out that there are no White House officials, nor anyone else newsworthy, just a lot of boring, mid-level bureaucrats and lobbyists no one will care about. That actually translates to “No one Bush hired.”
Now we find out that ABC isn’t even going to try to see if anyone in the former Clinton administration was a client. Hmm. That seems odd for a news agency. Why wouldn’t the fact - if it were the case - that any members of Clinton’s administration were clients? That’s...well, that;s just partisan bias is what it is. Any potential scandal hurts the argument that we were better off with Bill, and it hurts Hillary’s chances of being elected should she triumph in the primaries.
Oh, that liberal media.
