Everything changed after the election, and it had nothing to do with Obama winning a second term.
For as long as I've been aware of the media, I've known that I live in a country with a media biased strongly in favor of Democrats. Fair enough. But there were rules in that world; one of them being that once a Democrat was safely elected or reelected, the media would do its job when it came to scandals, and overall accountability.
This is why after Obama won his second term I thought we would finally get to the bottom of what happened in Libya; from the incompetence that left our consulate unforgivably vulnerable, straight through to the White House lying for two weeks to cover up the fact a successful terrorist attack had occurred on its watch.
But that didn’t happen. The media didn't revert back to being the media, the media remained at its post as a Palace Guard.
Then the same thing happened with the fiscal cliff and Sandy Hook and immigration and the debt ceiling. Even with Obama safely snuggled in for term two, the media refused to do anything that would or could damage him politically. But it's not just Obama, the media is openly and viciously protecting the Democratic Party as a whole.
The Narrative is now: Democrats can do nothing wrong, Republicans can do nothing right.
This is "60 Minutes" gave Obama and Hillary a sponge bath instead of using the interview as an opportunity to finally get some answers on Libya. This is why ABC News's Martha Rattadtz refused to ask Sen. Menendez about a brewing sex scandal involving underage prostitutes. This is why the Menendez story should've broken wide open today after an F.B. I. raid and the media still ignores it.
And this is why the media will run whole hog with an unverified and ultimately false story that makes gun-rights activists look awful.
