BENGHAZI BLOG-COMMENT OF THE DAY:
This seems to be a real test of the American media.
They have dined out for decades on the role of the Watergate investigation in removing a president from office as proof of their value in policing the government and holding those in power accountable to the court of public opinion.
Well, it wasn’t exactly easy, but the media didn’t share a lot of ideological views with Nixon, and he didn’t go out of his way to be friends with them. But how much harder must it be now, for the media to be in a position to hold an administration accountable when it contains the people they are simpatico with. How much harder must it be, when they don’t know if the trail will end with Clinton or Obama, frustrating even their internecine bias. How much harder must it be, right before a presidential election?
