“Scarborough Rips MSM: In Wasilla Instead of Investigating Obama-Blago Connection” - video available here.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: How rich is it that we sit around and say “we don’t know, we have to wait until Obama tells us. We don’t know what these connections, we don’t know whether he really ran the 2002 [Blago] campaign or not”? Again, I will guarantee you, if Sarah Palin had run the most corrupt—if Sarah Palin had run Ted Stevens’s campaign in 2002, and somebody had bragged about it in the New Yorker, the press would have savaged her. But we sit here now, it’s almost Christmas, and we don’t know the truth about it. We don’t know the truth about any of this, because we haven’t done the investigative work . . . I’m convicting the press because they didn’t investigate this past summer, when they were sending all those people to Wasilla, a town of 9,000, they should have been going to Chicagoland.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I think that’s really fair.
SCARBOROUGH: The press never covered --
JOHN HARWOOD: To cover Blagojevich?
SCARBOROUGH: To look at the background of a candidate who had only been in national politics for one year before he decided to run for president of the United States, and was born from the most corrupt political city in America. Do you not think, do we not think, that warranted an investigation? Not to suggest he did anything wrong, but to see what his background was?
HARWOOD: Of course. There was coverage of his background—Ryan Lizza’s piece.
SCARBOROUGH: OK, then tell me this—yeah, Lizza’s the only one that wrote about it and he got kicked off the campaign plane. So here’s my question for you: if we know so much about this, answer this question. Did Barack Obama, was Barack Obama intimately involved in Blagojevich’s 2002 campaign?
Why are some in the MMM (Moribund Mainstream Media) so interested in the Obamafraud's past associations now that the Blagojevich scandal is in full throttle? Why are they all of a sudden surprised that they themselves failed to scrutinize their own liberal god when they had the chance? Will they do the right thing and ask the hard questions and follow the corruption wherever it may lead? Given their past record, I highly doubt it. As far as I am concerned, the MMM is an accessory to the Democratic Party corruption.
