MEDIA: Finally a reason for outrage

When the Benghazi story broke, there was so little coverage of it you would think it was an everyday occurrence. So what if four Americans were killed and the government lied about what happened?

When we found out about the abuses of the IRS, it also was a non-story. After all, it only targeted major donors to the Romney campaign, the tea party, and some evil Christian groups. What’s the big deal? They are all just a bunch of right-wing nuts.

But hold your horses: The government was then caught spying on the keepers of the truth, the American press. This is unacceptable in the USA. Why this is an outrage. Who does this administration think they are?

Is it just me or does anybody else find the silence of the press to be deafening?
