NewsBusters Quick to Tie Obama to Blago
Topic: NewsBusters

Well, that was quick. A Dec. 9 NewsBusters post by Warner Todd Huston mines the GOP's Obama oppo research website in order to try and tie Barack Obama to corrupt Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, though he can't come up with much more than that they both knew Tony Rezko. Nevertheless, Huston whines about the media's puported bias in not reporting a connection where there isn't one: "It was as if the media thought Obama had never even met Blago. Yes, the media is doing a bang up job!"

This is undercut a tad by fellow NewsBuster Noel Sheppard pointing out that Blagojevich called Obama a "motherf***er" for not going along with his scheme to auction off Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder.

UPDATE: The MRC decides the mainstream media is good for something after all. A NewsBusters post by Scott Whitlock ponders whether the "mainstream media" will report on Obama's links to Blagojevich by citing a report in ... the mainstream media, by ABC's Jake Tapper. 

Of course, Whitlock conveniently forgets to copy-and-paste Tapper's statement that "There are no allegations that President-elect Obama or anyone close to him had anything to do with any of the crimes Gov. Blagojevich is accused of having committed."
