WOODWARD AND BERNSTEIN... WHERE ARE YOU THIS TIME FELLAS?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
I was working in Canberra over 40 years ago, when Watergate broke and we all marvelled at the two journos who relentlessly unearthed what President Tricky Dicky Nixon had been up to with the help of a certain “Deep Throat”. It was exceptional investigative reporting and they even made a movie about it called, “All the President’s Men”.
So it’s a little difficult to imagine what exactly has tied these journos' tongues and jammed their laptops regarding Hillary. I mean Nixon’s Watergate was bad, but really, all he did was arrange for some hoods to bug his political opponents’ offices. He then tried to destroy the Oval Office tape recordings that proved his complicity. Something almost expected under the Clintons.
Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein are still around somewhere doing occasional TV commentary spots. But those spots are devoid of investigative revelations that befit the skulduggery of Clinton.
Yet, dare I suggest that Clinton’s misdemeanours make Nixon’s look more like a parking fine.
So what happened to Bob and Carl after they forced the resignation of Nixon? The rich pickings available with the corrupt Clintons should have been irresistible to any intrepid reporter, but this time around none of “The Washington Post” staff has offered a whimper of protest about the American political system being trashed by a corrupt Obama Administration.
In fact they, like most other media, have turned a blind eye to the entrenched criminality defended by the Department of Justice and Attorney General, Loretta Lynch.
Many of her staff also work for Hillary's corrupt Clinton Foundation. WTF, did you say?
Castrated FBI Director Comey
The iconic FBI has been castrated by the Clintons and by the appointments to Lynch’s Office, including Lynch herself. President Obama has looked on with more than tacit approval.
Obama, tacit approval
Obama’s eight years have been strewn with an ideological incompetence that has already set America back decades while Bob and Carl remain aloof.
Could it be that Nixon was a Republican (in our terms a Conservative) and could it be that Clinton is a Democrat (in our terms Labor)?
I’ve got it now, the Left can do no wrong with the media and the Right can do no right.
Nothing has changed, there or here, in 43 years.
