"That really says it all"
At the American Thinker, Steve Feinstein discusses the Berger case and the willingess of Democrats and the MSM to ignore it:
One can only imagine if the situation were reversed and a Republican official had been caught red-handed as Berger was. If Condi Rice had stolen and destroyed classified documents in an obvious attempt to shield her political cronies from humiliation, the NPRs and Bob Schieffers and George Stephanopouloses of the world would be loudly trumpeting the news, over and over and over, for the “good of the country.”The MSM is partisan. It serves as the propaganda division of the Democratic Party. They lie, distort facts and mislead the American people. They are unworthy of respect.
What makes this situation so different—and important—is that it is not merely the usual case of a politician lying about illegal campaign contributions or an embarrassing extramarital affair and then being defended by political allies. This was a case where a former National Security Advisor—the Government’s highest official in 1999 when it came to protecting the country against terror attack—broke the law because his concern for political advantage outweighed his concern for the future safety of the country.
And even more tellingly, the leaders of his party and the mainstream media are apparently willing to let the whole matter pass with only the most cursory acknowledgment that it even happened in the first place. That really says it all.
