Welcome Instapundit Readers!!
When the mother of the ex-fiancé of the daughter of the former Republican Vice Presidential candidate has a drug problem, it makes the front page of Yahoo!, yet when the half brother of the Democratic President of the United States is denied entry into the United Kingdom because he has been accused of sexual assault, the American media ignores it.
Wonder why they’re only interested in stories of gossip and gaffes involving Republicans. Guess it’s just not a story when Democrats (or their family members) do thes same sort of things which generate headlines for the GOP.
Ah, recall the good ol’ days when the dispatched whole teams to Wasilla, Alaska to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin and they can’t even spare an intern to do google searches on Democrats.
Wonder why that is.
FROM THE COMMENTS: Kcom, one of our readers offers an explanation:
The facts also support an alternative take, i.e. that the media is surprised and considers it newsworthy when a Republican does something like that but take it as a given that Democrats are corrupt, drug-using, sexual predators who routinely commit felonies.
And why report a story as unremarkable as that.
