Posted on 07/21/2009 3:04:19 PM PDT by Justaham
Just six months into his presidency, President Barack Obama's administration is the target of a federal lawsuit, and that by a civil servant who alleges he was dismissed from his post in violation of the requirements of a law that Barack Obama himself once sponsored in the Senate.
Yet despite all this, the July 21 Washington Post print edition failed to carry the story, directing readers with this 39-word teaser atop page A15 (The Fed Page) to a Post blog:

the Washington Post serves as toilet paper for the obamanation, and thankfully so....
Teh WaPo is dutifully protecting the ‘Bama as opposed to reporting news. Surprised?

More on Walpin
At least the paper is showing more interest than Congress is.
It was Congress’ powers that were abrogated in this matter.
The actual news release came late Friday evening. Many articles were hidden in the slow news part of the weekend covered up by important things like deaths and news that was years old. /sarc
We tried to get the news out...BUT at least they are revisiting the subject when more people are paying attention.
Check IMPEACH in keyword search for more articles released over the weekend.
Actually the Federal Page is one of the most heavily read in this unsufferable rag.
Not a bad place to land.

I prefer something softer.
The Ministry of Truth will correct the back issue and this too will go down the memory hole to feed the furnaces.
Walpin’s firing is exactly the sort of story that in the Bush administration would have become a huge scandal, reverberating for weeks, months, or even years. Yet it is virtually ignored because it has the potential for making Obama look bad or even criminal.
