I’m old enough to remember Watergate.

When Nixon tried this, it was über-national news, blared from TVs, radios and front page headlines in every major paper. We couldn’t get away from it there was so much coverage.

Democratic administration? Ho Hum...

Holder’s gotta go.

While that was true late in the game, early on the coverage was rather limited. I remember clearly that I had heard the term "Watergate" many times before learning what it was about.

To catch up, I began reading any article I could find. In my local newspaper the articles were invariably on the back pages. Once I started following the story I realized that there was a great cancer growing in the White House.

It was only later that the media began to realize that the issue wasn't going away quietly.
