What’s the difference between the Bush era subpoena stories on Vice President Cheney’s energy task force and the allegations that Karl Rove had outed Valerie Plame?
Many, but two obvious ones stand out.
In the case of Solyndra we already know that taxpayers have lost hundreds of millions of dollars and that the White House was involved.
And second, the MSM isn’t interested in pressing the questions of what did the president and his staff know and when did they know it?
The Examiner’s lead editorial is on the same subject, and hopefully the New York Times, Washington Post, Politico etc will figure out that this is a huge story and that the White House going turtle is a giveaway of interesting things in those documents requested by the House.
As my column notes, this is a Woodward-Bernstein sized opportunity for a young investigative journalist or two who wants to dig, and for a publisher looking for a best-seller if released about 11 months from now.
