Letter: Which scandal is phony?
I’ve seen little to no coverage in the Monitor concerning the scandals that President Obama and his talking heads have called phony. Isn’t the job of the press, regardless of its political leanings, to question any administration when it makes false and disingenuous pronouncements?
We have Fast and Furious, which resulted in the deaths of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent. We’ve been stonewalled on Benghazi, where four brave Americans died. The IRS admitted corruption, and the head of the tax exempt division pleaded the Fifth. Not to be left out, the Department of Justice invaded the privacy of the press, which it also has admitted. The vast majority of the American public doesn’t for a minute think these are phony; only this administration’s sycophants do.
All the above are major scandals, and apparently Obama just brushes them aside as distractions and phony. Tell that to the families that lost loved one, those members of the press that were targeted by the Department of Justice and those groups harassed by the IRS. Remember, Obama was outraged with the latter and vowed to get to the bottom of this but so far no action has been taken.
Why isn’t the Concord Monitor doing its job reporting and delving deeper into these issues? I know the editorial board is very much left-leaning, but all the above are serious matters that will not go away. By not reporting, you are short-changing your readership. So, which of the four mentioned above does the Monitor consider phony?
