But the media didn’t report when Clinton did it. So it’s like it didn’t happen.
Alas,it was reported. I remember reading about this action and the explanation was that these ‘positions’ served at the pleasure of the President. A mild debate commenced but subsided as we were to give the new president the opportunity to proceed with ‘his’ people.
There was quite a media/Dems uproar when President Bush dismissed (2001) just 8 US attorneys.
Naturally the double sided nature of Democrats actions/policies vs Republican actions/policies comes in view.
Of course they reported it. Hell, I REMEMBER them reporting it.
The difference is they reported it in a total deadpan.
This defines what a "low information voter" is: they don't know to be upset unless the press tells them to.
When you and I say "the press didn't cover it," we mean treat it like the Michael Flynn firing. They will smugly come back with the footage of them reporting the story like they did when Clinton fired all the DOJ prosecutors after his inauguration. And they'll be telling the truth.
The difference is, in communications terms, the first is "advertising" and the second is a "disclaimer."
