I have to admit, I've been truly stumped over this one. Until my wife suggested something this morning that totally made sense.
Our unabashedly liberal media won't touch this story with a ten-foot pole... before the election. Why? The race is too close. They know that ANY media attention on this issue will destroy Obama's (and this is the crucial part) and any Democratic chance to take the White House next month.
AFTER the election, I believe we'll see a different story, regardless of who wins. Why? Very simple.
If Obama is re-elected, they will break the story, he'll resign in disgrace, and Joe Biden will assume the Presidency... and the White House will remain in Democratic control.
If Obama is defeated, they'll succumb to the ratings bonanza in breaking this story, and will throw Obama under the bus, as they then will have nothing whatsoever to lose, and a ratings extravaganza to gain.
