WaPo, Solyndra, and the Christmas Dead Zone

At Big Journalism, John Nolte makes a great observation about yesterday’s article on Obama and Solyndra in the Washington Post:

By finally bothering to look into the kind of scandal the MSM would’ve used to bedevil George W. Bush at every turn, the Washington Post is now on record devoting 2600 words to the story.

However, what the Washington Post quite deliberately did was to drop the story on – of all days — Christmas Day, into the Media Dead Zone between between Christmas and New Year’s.

What the Washington Post deliberately did was make sure this story won’t become a part of The Narrative, a narrative that would (and should) damage Their Precious One.

Why, it’s like the Post is part of Obama’s “Non-Official Campaign” or something.
