A liberal news blackout on a democrat scandal? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

The third theory is the most plausible: The Democratic memo reveals that much of what the media has been focusing on for the past six months has been a set-up job. The staff and Democratic members of the Senate Intelligence Committee have been selling story after story (think the Niger yellowcake and "imminent" threat controversies). Out of whole cloth, they have contrived an ambiguous but ominous speculation about the Bush administration's sinister motives for invading Iraq. Now, through this one memo, they have been revealed as nothing short of cynical political operatives. And the reporters who ran with their hints
Thanks for posting this article. Check out this Third theory in this post for why the media is ignoring the DemocRAT Intelligence Memo. Looks like some of the media were suckered by the democRATs for the last six months and don't want to admit that fact!

I predict that one of two things will happen next
1. The mainstream media will bury this story -- most people will never hear of it.
2. If #1 fails and too many people know that something happened (though many could not say exactly what happened), the media will go on to the next step: The media will all of the sudden say that the Republicans stole an important document "having to do with national security" and planned to exploit it for political advantage. The "honest" Democrats will of course be "outraged" and say that this is the "worst scandal since Watergate." The nature of the leaked document will never be revealed -- the media will only say vaguely that it had something to do with "national security." The spin machine and the compliant media will say that this is proof that Republicans cannot be trusted with matters of national security. I can smell this 1,000 miles away -- what should be exposed as a Democrat scandal will instead be spun as being the fault of those scheming Republicans. I predict that in two weeks the media will go on the offensive with their spin doctors.

Compare the [minimal] coverage this has gotten with the media feeding frenzy over the alleged "RATS" subliminal message in a 1/24th second frame of a Republican political ad at the height of the 2000 election campaign. That gives you a clue about the biases of the media.

Hugh has indeed nailed it, again. He is hammering this issue in a move right out of Joshua Micah Marshall's own playbook - Keep the issue hot until someone notices. But, unlike Mr. Marshall's political alchemy, Hugh is clinging to an issue that is meaningful, substantive, factual, scandalous, and truly a threat to the National Security and the well-being of our families. Unlike the silly Plame game, the seditious behavior of some (Democrat) members of the S.I.C. might very well get thousands (or ten's of thousands) or people killed.
Swing away, Hugh! Swing away!
