  •  Media Outrage (0+ / 0-)

    For weeks the media has treated us to a non-stop series of lamenting of how President Obama was failing to express the proper amount of outrage towards BP.  Well, now we have Joe Barton and other republicans unequivocally supporting, defending and apologizing to BP.  This is no isolated incident.  Not only have republicans failed to express their anger towards BP, they have unabashedly put the interests of BP ahead of the people of the Gulf.

    Can we now assume that the media will lament at least an equal amount of outrage towards republicans for their failure to express a modicum of anger towards BP?  Will they take republicans to the woodshed for their unyielding support of BP?  Will they highlight the fact that it is these same BP defenders who hold the rest of the country hostage in addressing global warming and who are blocking our path towards a green future?  It will be interesting to see the response or non-response from those in the media in the coming days and weeks.
