Dave Shoemaker: Press refusing to do its job

May 5, 2014 

Shame on The Bee and the Fourth Estate! It took a watchdog group to go to court, using the Freedom of Information Act, to get the door pried open – the door to the biggest scandal since Watergate – and the The Bee gives it four inches next to a tanker accident in Lynchburg, Va. Four Americans were sacrificed in Benghazi and the press will not do its duty.

Oh yes, there is Fast and Furious, the tapping of phones of The Associated Press and TV reporters, the IRS being used to attack the president’s enemies ... but they are not interested!
