Thus is "THE ONE" able to mollify the Antique Media!

Michael Laprarie at Wizbang covers the problem: "Even though the report was released yesterday evening, the major editorial pages are curiously silent this morning. There are questions to be asked, if anyone with a big stick is willing to ask them. Sure, it's Christmas Eve, and maybe a big document drop before a major four-day holiday weekend (*cough*) just doesn't raise the kind of suspicions it used to, now that our Deliverer is poised to take over the reigns.

But certainly there are numerous aspiring Woodwards and Bernsteins out there who haven't had much to do since their all-expenses-paid vacations to Wasilla, AK ended some six weeks ago. Or maybe a bored editorial writer or two. Or maybe some cable news anchors with a little time on their hands. Anyone with a little curiosity? Anyone willing to "afflict the comfortable"? Anyone?

Once again, it seems that the legacy media, which spared no effort investigating the Bush TANG AWOL non-story, the Valerie Plame non-story (and is still milking it), and the "Downing Street Memo" non-story; which managed to dig up John McCain's Vietcong torturer, which tried to con gullible teenagers into dishing dirt on the McCain children via FaceBook -- well, they just don't seem interested in investing a similar amount of effort when the fruits of their labors might dull the patina of holiness that they have worked so hard to place upon The One.

Christmas is the season for celebrating the arrival of the Heavenly Messiah, not an excuse to whitewash the ascension of an earthly one. The more unwilling the media is to deeply probe the Chicagoland-Blagojevitch cesspool, the more I am convinced that there is a lot about it that we should know."

GOOOOLLLEEEEE! Could it be the media are carrying water for "THE ONE"??????
