Speaking of the News and Hypocrisy

Shouldn't there be a ban on conservatives ever claiming an investigation is politically motivated? The Kenneth Starr report was commissioned to investigate Whitewater and instead ended up as an investigation of the president's private sexual encounters -- or as erotic story fodder -- or both depending on how much you enjoyed reading it. Anyway, history hasn't stopped the Republicans from making this exact claim in regards to the Sara Palin investigation:

Also worth noting: CNN titled the article "Palin aide says Obama backers politicizing Alaska investigation." First of all, how is that news? Isn't the news that she is being investigated? There's no reason the news should be what a Palin aide says about the investigation. Once again, the article demonstrates what I was posted about a few days ago: the myth of the liberal media and the absence of investigative journalism.

The GOP is hoping we're too stupid or too busy to notice.
