Michael Isikoff, the left-wing journalist most famous for getting scooped on The Story of the Decade by Matt Drudge, is exiting NBC News
It was during his time with Newsweek that Isikoff became yet-another icon of a mainstream media more interested in protecting power than holding power accountable. In 1998, Isikoff had uncovered the affair between then-President Bill Clinton and a young intern named Monica Lewinski. Newsweek, however, refused to publish the story.
So Drudge did -- not the story but the news that Newsweek was refusing to explode its own bombshell... -- and an era in New Media was born.
Today, in order to avoid hurting Democrats, the media simply refuses to investigate Democrat scandals. Of the half-dozen Obama scandals, the American media has not broken a single one.
This is how the Obama administration gets away with everything from gun-running to using the IRS to target Obama's political opponents during his re-election campaign.
Rather than use the Drudge/Newsweek lesson to get better, the media decided to become even more corrupt.

I suspect Breitbart has been attacked. Instead of the story, it sends you off to a democrat site.
Didn’t Isikoff do something in the Bush years that caused a riot overseas and some deep turmoil? He has had a couple of other missteps that maybe FR-erdom will remember....

Oxymoron ping. Thanks george76.
Isikoff was the little communist POS who created a story falsely accusing our troops of flushing korans down toilets at GITMO.
“Today, in order to avoid hurting Democrats, the media simply refuses to investigate Democrat scandals. Of the half-dozen Obama scandals, the American media has not broken a single one.”
How can we get rid of the American media? How can we just drown them out with something better?
Can we just drown them?
Can’t fit all those fat heads in there though.
Is he the one who called Christians ‘poor, uneducated, and easy to command’ then later got his hand blown off tossing a live grenade back out of a journalists van In Iraq?

No, that was another guy. His name definitely was similar, but I’ve forgotten it.
I'm amazed he didn't work for the New York Times...
