This is why.
Also from Sultan Knish, some words on Venezuela. Why is Venezuela not hitting the headlines? People are STARVING. If this were a collapsing Capitalist economy, Leftists would be hounding Washington to make aid to Venezuela a priority.
Why do Socialist/Communist/Leftist societies get ignored when they collapse?
This takedown of the Leftist Media is priceless. You do know that 90% of D.C. journalists vote Democratic, don't you?
Among Washington correspondents, the ones who dominate national political coverage, it’s even more skewed, said Tim Groseclose, author of “Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind.” More than 90 percent of D.C. journalists vote Democratic, with an even higher number giving to Democrats or liberal-leaning political action committees, the author said.The trend to "professionalize" and license more jobs has had an unintended effect on employment of a group that already experiences difficulties in getting a job - ex-convicts. While there are convicts who are dedicated repeaters, still, many do manage to turn their lives around, and deserve a chance at most jobs. Some states make that impossible - no matter how long since they offended.
BTW, the Benghazi report does not address one of the most fundamental points from Clinton's testimony - her "tough" response to a question (and, as usual, Neo-neocon nails it):
I am SO hoping that this point gets addressed before November.With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?So, was it “because of a protest”? Or was it some random chaotic act “because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans”?Well, how about: “Neither, Hillary, and what’s more, you know it was neither. Both suggestions are absurd. It actually was a group of organized terrorists who planned an attack, and succeeded in killing not just ‘some’ random Americans, but the ambassador and three protectors.”
