Obama’s Scandals and the Chirping Crickets of the Liberal Media

Posted by  ▪  June 28, 2014

At the time of Watergate, who ever stopped to wonder what would have happened had Nixon been a Democrat?

Why has the mainstream media been so silent about the scandals in which the Obama administration has become embroiled? From Roger L. Simon at Pajamas Media: Obama is beside the point.
