    Hurricane Sandy drowns coverage of White House scandals​


    10/30/2012
    By: Neil Munro


    Hurricane Sandy is helping drown media coverage of several White House scandals in the crucial run-up to Election Day.

    The storm has also dampened coverage of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s progress in critical Midwest swing states.

    On Monday, the networks’ cameras were pointed at Obama as he stood at a White House podium to sketch out his administration’s response to the oncoming hurricane.

    “I’m extraordinarily grateful for the cooperation of our state and local officials. … At this point, there are no unmet needs,” he said, speaking as the president, instead of a candidate.

    The cameras weren’t pointed, however, at the Obama administration’s proliferating scandals, including the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling project, the Treasury Department’s decision to strip Delphi Automotive workers of their pensions and the administration’s intelligence leaks.

    The cameras also weren’t pointed at the top GOP officials who recently began demanding the White House provide support for Obama’s claims that he directed his deputies to immediately secure U.S. diplomatic sites after jihadis assaulted the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11.

    No, not really. Fox is still covering the scandals. The other networks never did.

    Hurricane Sandy is a Democrat Plot.

    Sandy's death toll climbs; millions without power
    30 Oct.`12 — Millions of people from Maine to the Carolinas waited wearily for the power to come back on Tuesday, and New Yorkers found themselves all but cut off from the modern world as the U.S. death toll from Superstorm Sandy climbed to 40, many of the victims killed by falling trees.

    As a hurricane it will be gone. I've been through loads of em down here in Florida. Coverage of the storm will end when the next thing rolls in to take precidence.

    There will be plenty of coverage for the campaign. Voting is right around the corner and none of the LSM channels will miss an opportunity to cover it.

    There's no white house scandals, just jumbled minds of right wing idiots that listen to Fauxnews prophets.
