More Fox News Hypocrisy -- it never ends!

Case of pot calling the kettle black in the following news story.  And let us not forget the missing Pentagon $2.3 TRILLION in the Bush administration that Rumsfeld told about on 9/10/01, the day before 9/11. Watch him reporting this, and stay with the video to see a whistle blower telling about the coverup on where that money went:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU4GdHLUHwU   How soon and how conveniently the right wing fanatics forget when anything bad  involves their own party (and let's face it, losing $2.3 TRILLION is TERRIBLY, MEMORABLY BAD! Hard to forget THAT!  And the same for "losing" e-mails that are being requested by investigators of obvious White House wrong-doing.)

Lost IRS e-mails vs Lost Bush White House e-mails

EXCERPT: On Friday the IRS reported to the House Ways and Means Committee that some email from the account of Lois Lerner, director of the Exempt Organizations division, were missing due to a computer crash that occurred in 2011. That morsel of news set the conservative media to salivating with hopes of a new controversy to wrap around the neck of the Obama administration. Never mind that after a year of congressional hearings, independent investigations, and media scrutiny, there has not been an iota of evidence tying any of the IRS activities to the White House, right-wing pundits and politicians scurried to spread innuendo and place blame.

Leading the pack, as usual, was Fox News. They pounced on the missing email story with a barely disguised glee, despite the fact that they had little information to report. However, they did succeed at what they do best: spewing outrage over alleged improprieties by President Obama that they cavalierly dismissed during the Bush years.

(Dana Perino, along with other conservative Fox pundits, weighed in with undisguised outrage), bemoaning the administration’s “ignorance” and “incompetence.” And without any proof whatsoever, they implied that the administration was lying and covering up.

(Now, what is humorous about all this):  Perino was Bush’s press secretary when it was revealed that two years of White House emails were lost. This, of course, cannot be waived off as an isolated problem that occurred at another agency. This was the White House itself that lost emails that were presently being requested by investigators. And it was Perino who came to the defense.
