Letter | The media is failing America by not reporting on Obama administration transgressions

All of America should join U.S. Sen. Diane Feinstein's outrage over NSA spying. However the Senator’s outrage, along with that of her fellow Democrats in the Senate and House over the IRS targeting individuals who are heads of and supporters of Tea Party Patriots, is nowhere to be found.

Have senators and Congress members become such an ultra special class of Americans that they only become outraged when a federal government powerhouse such as NASA attacks them, and not when the awesomely powerful IRS targets every ay Americans with threats of ruin who are only exercising their Constitutional rights. This is a frightening threat to us all.

Then there is the majority of the U.S. press who become staunch defenders only of themselves when reporters are threatened when refusing to disclose sources. These people do not deserve any special protection when their everyday unfair and biased reporting is included in the equation. The last “great” press investigation was handed to them with no effort at all on the paper or reporters’ part by a volunteer source tipping the Washington Post to a story that became “Watergate.”

Had the subject of Watergate been a Democrat -- say Obama, would this era of The Press have followed up? Not based on their current observable performance of weighted commission and of omission of what they chose to report.

I must note here my observation of subjects that seem most important to The Sun News is the half pages of invaluable space devoted to the terrible trauma caused by such challenges as moving the obituary page to another location and more recently the great excitement being caused by the inclusion of a new comic strip. All this waste when a Pulitzer awaits the Sun News for accurately reporting the stunning real news of Obama and his administration’s obvious unlawful use of the limited powers available to the presidency; as clearly laid out in our Constitution.

We the people are in real trouble folks.
