Turning to non-health care news… Here's a question a few have begun asking: How did the Eric Massa mess dominate the news for an entire week, while the latest allegations surrounding John Ensign -- which include an ACTUAL FBI investigation -- have registered just a blip on the media radar? (Yesterday, it was reported that a grand jury has issued subpoenas for an inquiry into whether Ensign broke laws by financially helping the husband of his ex-mistress.) As the Washington Monthly’s Steve Benen recently wrote, “Sen. John Ensign (R) of Nevada is caught in a truly humiliating sex scandal -- and remember, the media generally loves political sex scandals -- involving a shameless hypocrite, who ran on a ‘family-values’ platform, committing adultery with one of his own aides, who happens to be married to another aide. The scandal involves the immediate affair, plus alleged ethics violations, hush money, and official corruption. And yet, no media frenzy. No reporters staked out in front of Ensign's home. No op-eds speculating about the need for Ensign to resign in disgrace.”

CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS simply don't have the resources to pull off the sales pitch for Obamacare to cover a story like this.

If Ensign were a Democrat, I would be willing to bet you a million dollars Faux News would be all over it....

Caught O'Reilly last night and Ensign was indeed mentioned on his show.

When did BillO become part of any NEWS program? I mean besides his stint on the very important "Inside Edition"...

I think that Corruption is somehow expected in Nevada so that makes it a bland story.

Agreed. So why aren't the liberal news stations covering it then?

both of them are busy covering the body under the water thing.

Las Vegas was built by the mob and one expects it to not be corrupt?
