Frank Warner: While Democrats rule 20 things the press won’t report on

It’s sad to say, but American journalism is so heavily dominated by Democratic reporters and editors that, as long as Democrats hold power, we cannot expect our biggest news agencies to look for or report any big story that would cast our leaders in a poor light.

Just consider the muffled peeps of reporting on the Van Jones controversy, ACORN’s corruption and even the Tea Party rallies.

While Democrats rule, if these news stories occur, don’t expect to see them on any front page:

* White House claiming health care costs are going down when they are going up.

* White House claiming the deficit is not increasing when it is.

* The FBI wiretapping of Americans for purely political reasons.

* The firing of federal inspector generals for purely political reasons.

* The firing of U.S. attorneys for purely political reasons.

* The refusal by the Justice Department to prosecute Democrats who discourage non-Democrats from voting.

* The refusal by the Justice Department to prosecute Democrats who encourage voting by dead, fictitious or otherwise unqualified people.

* Subjecting Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Sailors to poor health care at military hospitals.

* The failure of “stimulus” spending to create the jobs the administration projected.

* New health care regulations discouraging the number of breakthroughs in drugs and medical procedures.

* The relaxing of banking regulations after the White House and Congress promised tighter banking regulations.

* The failure of alternative energy sources to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

…if the bodies pop up in the river with Democrats’ notarized confessions attached, the establishment journalists will do a story or two. But they won’t dig, delve and discover with one-hundredth the delightful dedication they have when Republicans are in control.

That’s just the way it is.

Sunshine super. Protecting Democrats might have been understandable when the Democrats were out of power, but now that they have full control of the White House and Congress, the Democrats need watching by a vigilant and skeptical press willing to challenge every dubious word and deed.

Our government has to be held accountable, and that can’t happen if a partisan press leaves its whistles and spotlights on the shelf.
