Wait no longer!
Benghazi, IRS, AP – doesn't add up to much 'transparency' does it, Mr President?—
Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 13, 2013
Not surprisingly, legitimate journalists (and Piers Morgan) are not happy to learn that the Justice Department has reportedly been looking into Associated Press reporters’ phone activity, including outgoing calls from both their work and personal phone numbers. Even Morgan — a former newspaper editor dogged by allegations of phone hacking — is finding it hard to buy the Obama administration’s claim of being the most transparent administration ever.
It is pretty brave to go after Obama — especially now that the media’s longstanding effort to insulate the president from scandal seems to be crumbling fast. Isn’t Morgan afraid that tweeting the word “Benghazi” will brand him as a card-carrying member of the right-wing witch hunt?
We’ll give author Brad Thor the final word on “transparency”:
I had no idea that "transparency" meant cover-up, end-run the Constitution, wiretap… Amazing what a post-partisan president can teach you.—
