I don’t watch Fox News, but somehow I doubt Bill O’Reilly will be covering this story:
Former first lady Barbara Bush donated an undisclosed amount of money to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund with specific instructions that the money be spent with an educational software company owned by her son Neil.
I did search on the Fox News web site, and found a single entry in their search archive, but it’s an AP wire story that was probably automatically fed in. No Fox commentary on it.
Better let this one die from the silent treatment, Rupert.
Nice way to subsidize the son’s business and get a hefty tax write-off to boot. Sleazebags.
Also, I feel compelled to point out what a great job Think Progess is doing as a watchdog, keeping a great eye on the regular stream of sleaziness and untruthiness coming from the Bush, his administration and apparently his immediate family. Their feed alerted me to this story (“All in the family”) a few days ago. It’s a quality feed.
The thing that gets me about this story is how little regard it is getting in the MSM. Either the media or the general public just don’t care how brazenly dishonest this is! It’s got less that 200 entries on Google News, and almost all of them are the just different copies of the exact same AP story printed in different newspapers, and then shoveled online. Most of the links will be gone a a few weeks due to licsensing restrictions.
Where are the follow-ups? Where are the demanded apologies? Where is the announcement of the IRS investigation? How apathetic are we when such soulless corruption is openly practiced an no one cares?
