There seems to be some selective outrage as reflected in popular news. While the media obsession with publicity mongering Jackson-Sharpton’s kangaroo court of mob opinion drones on ad nauseum, some other items seem to miss the editors’ notice:

Justice Kagan is violating federal law by not recusing herself from the Obamacare case as she was counsel in the writing of the bill. Also it seems no one notices that the Obama administration is fostering illegal selective enforcement of immigration law, refusing to deport known immigration criminals. And where is the outrage that a group has illegally put a bounty on the head of the mob-assumed murderer: When will the Justice Department apply RICO law and prosecute everyone in the Black Panthers organization?

Closer to home, Phoenix firefighter union pro-Mitchell signs abound in Tempe seemingly unnoticed by Tempe city enforcement. And while it took years to oust the La Raza traitors from Tucson classrooms (they still work for the schools as counselors, probably with increased salaries), a conservative is fired within days of writing a song critical of Obama.

It is a blessing that there are other avenues to get information and no wonder newspapers don’t sell well.
