If an extortion scandal falls in a silent media forest right before an election will anyone notice?
Troufishing's diary on Romney and Delphi tops the Rec list today, based on a piece on Wednesday making a startling charge about Romney enriching himself via the auto bailout.
An ethics charge has been filed by the UAW and others against Romney for failure to disclose his interest in Delphi, a company that greatly profited from the auto-bailout.
And yet, I searched for "Delphi" at the NY Times site and found nothing about this story, which has been out there since Wednesday. But they did transcribe without comment Paul Ryan's accusation that President Obama supposedly allowed the bailout to bypass nonunion workers at Delphi. (The Times omitted the word "supposedly".)
OK, well, that's just the Times. Let's google Delphi, Romney and UAW. Ah, some results! Let's see, WaPo? No. CNN? No. ABC, CBS, NBC? No, No, No. Just the usual bunch of "crazy" lefties suspects - Greg Palast, Huff Post, Kos.
OK, Let's try Benghazi.
Well, what do you know? The WaPo has the esteemed William Bennett, gravely opining: "Either there was serious malfeasance on the part of this administration or a knowing cover up with shifting stories and blame."
The increasingly hacky Jake Tapper has a piece: The Benghazi Drip, Drip, Drip. That sounds objective to me!
Hey Jake -- you've got a candidate enriching himself at the time he was condemning the auto bailout. Benghazi has faded as a shiny object (though you did get a link from Hugh Hewitt -- Congrats).
Damn liberal media. Time to wake up guys.
