  •  Question: why the media whitewash till now? (2+ / 0-)

    I think this is an important issue, I believe jobs are more important than corporate profits, especially in a recession - but I can't help asking why no major touched this story till tonight?

    As much as I despise Romney and the Bain model, I still have to ask, why Obama didn't bring up Sensata weeks or months ago. Will he even bring it up now?

    Fox is crowing that Obama is also profiting off the move to China because his Illinois pension includes shares of Sensata, but who broke the mainstream media whitewash first, Fox (as an inoculation piece) or MSNBC?

    I know the media doesn't mention it because they are corporate lapdogs, but only now when Obama seems to be lagging in polls, we see Ed Schultz unleashed. MSNBC announces #uppers will do the story in the morning too.

    Forgive my cynicism, but it seems Obama can really use Sensata as a fall back, but wasn't so interested before.

    Where was this story all this time? Love to hear your take.
