Massive coverage of John Swallow

The massive news coverage of John Swallow's alleged improprieties illustrates the liberal media's biased coverage of conservative politicians.

For example, consider the 39 days of front page coverage the New York Times gave the Abu Greib prisoner humiliation vs. the minimization of the Obama Administration's negligence and cover up of the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens, in Benghazi.

Another is Obama's "corpse" men speech where he repeatedly mispronounced the military term "corp" which was virtually ignored by the media. Contrast this with Sen. Rubio's drink of water which was endlessly replayed on network and cable news.

Mr. Swallow's activities are very mild in the spectrum of daily behind-the-scenes political dealings but he was fingered because of his aggressive defense of Utah's public lands. The political environmentalists and their partners in the media couldn't let him get away with that.

If the media is going to do some political witch-hunting, it should do so on an equal opportunity basis-- there is plenty to go around.
