  •  I never said that (0+ / 0-)

    They didn't do stories on it; I never said that "no major news media ever reported on the allegations."

    The items you cite prove my point better than yours:  The effort is to cover up for Lieberman.  They don't tell the reader easily available information about other campaigns spending petty cash sums like zero, $500, etc.  -- tiny fractions of Lieberman's.  They don't even tell the reader what Lamont spent in petty cash.  

    The big media know how to do that kind of reporting.  When its Hillary Clinton, they sure know how to do it:

    "But that was not all. Mrs. Clinton also bought more than $13,000 worth of flowers, mostly for fund-raising events and as thank-yous for donors. She laid out $27,000 for valet parking, paid as much as $800 in a single month in credit card interest and -- above all -- paid tens of thousands of dollars a month to an assortment of consultants and aides."

    The lead reporter on that story was also on the CT Senate race, Anne Kornblut.  

    You have a bias so you construct weird rationales for the big media running defense for  a national figure like Lieberman doing something absolutely bizarre.  $387,000 in unitemized expenditures in 2 weeks.  Theres no point in having laws; campaigns could hire the mafia if they can spend money like that without documentation.
