WHEN DEMOCRATS ARE CAUGHT RED-HANDED THE "NEWS" OUTLETS GENERALLY BURY THE REPORTS ON WEEKENDS, RARELY MENTION PARTY ID, AND SOME TRY TO IGNORE OR EXCUSE THE BEHAVIOR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

A few months back, after mentioning Rep. Jackson's "troubles" and the irony of him getting re-elected by the very people he has been playing for fools, I was called "obsessed" with Jackson.

That's a typical liberal trick - when you know someone is making a point you distract from the real issues by condescension and personal attacks on the messenger.

Well, late last week, in what we affectionately call a "Friday Night Dump", we discovered what we'd pretty much knew already - Jesse Jackson, Jr. is a player.

Now, the same networks who just ran story-after-story and played endless clips of Sen. Marco Rubio taking a sip of water, wondering out loud if his career was now over, suddenly had only a few seconds to spare to report that Jackson, Jr. will be going to jail for skimming close to a million dollars in campaign funds for personal toys and fun.

Like:

$43,000 on a gold-plated men's Rolex watch

$5,000 on fur capes and parkas

$9,000 on children's furniture

Tens of thousands of dollars for Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson memorabilia, including a $4,000 guitar and a $4,600 fedora.

About $750,000 in all - so far.

On Friday and Saturday the networks barely mentioned the story and did not identify his party affiliation - as usual, referring him as "the former Chicago Congressman" - another example of how you KNOW a Democrat is involved because they skip identifying him.

On Sunday, Face the Nation, Meet the Press and This Week all skipped the story.

Amazingly, Politico covered the story from a sympathetic standpoint writing, "It’s a story of a Chicago power couple that lost track of the line between campaign cash and personal funds in a spiral of money troubles."

Awww ... just an innocent guy getting caught up in the big time arena of politics.

Right! These people know exactly what they're doing and they know the media will give them as big a pass as possible so they have little fear.

Until they get caught and then we have to hear, as we did before the 2012 election, why they're suddenly out of sight and dealing with "health issues".

And the media play along and people who report the facts and ask the questions the media won't are "obsessed".

A sip of water is worth 155 clips on just ONE cable news show but when it comes to a REAL story the people have a right to know about?

Like Bob Mendenzez and his lavish trips on a campaign contributor's private jet, and reported sex romps with underage prostitutes, and special treatment for supporters in trouble with the feds. Fast and Furious. Benghazi. Graft and corruption in high places.

I know - as Hillary clinton said, "What difference does it make?"

Which is why this country is now in the state it is in - going, going, gone.
