Tell ya what, subby - when any news outlet reports on how many GOP Congress member trips to Uganda were paid for by The Family, we can talk about your oppression by the MSM.  Until then, kindly STFU.

Well to be fair it *is* why he's being investigated

So typical of the media.
I love the Rangel/Geitner defense of "well, I got caught, but paid the money back, so we are all good, right?"

LMAO at libs choosing to ignore this. But if it HAD been  republican, you would be going nuts.
Kinda like how libs FREAKED over waterboarding, but a dem having people killed (including children) is a-okay.

Well what do you know?  I just checked Fox News and Drudge and they're not reporting on it either.

This conspiracy is much deeper than we imagined!!!

the difference is that if you are killed without trial and other inconveniences like that you aren't bumming over the fact that you were waterboarded.  Dems don't like when people are all bummed out.

Republicans when innocent Palestinians are killed by Israeli strikes: It's the terrorists' fault for using them as cover!

Republicans when drone strikes kill innocents while a Democrat is President: It's the President's fault!

The three things you are asking for are entertainment, not prosecution. A good deal of the problems with our current media are centered around this sort of 4th estate entitlement to make the story into something to package and sell.

I'm not a fan of anyone pandering against national interests. If he is found guilty by those investigating him, yank him from office. But, that said, every investigation doesn't necessitate media coverage and outrage regardless of political affiliation.

FTA: "The review stems from a trip in late December 2011 made by Congressman Bill Owens and his wife, who visited the island nation of Taiwan."

"In a report completed last August but only made public yesterday, the panel concluded that the trip was largely sponsored and organized by the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. "

How the fark long does it take to look into something? They didn't spend this much time reviewing 9/11. If I worked that slow I would be fired for being incompetent.

And also - why not have foreign countries pay for the trips? They want something from us learn to be like the lobbyists here and pay for it so we tax payers don't have to. If we had paid for this trip would anyone investigate why he went there? It's ok to waste our money but not another country's?

How many trips am I paying for out of my check for congress to go to Israel? We give em billions (much of which they give back to our companies here so we can help them make sales and support them) why not have them give some of that back to our airlines....

Why is it that media is only considered unbiased when their only news is bashing Democrats and pushing right wing propaganda 24/7.

You don't understand subby.  He chose local news rather than national news because it's a Democrat and it would ruin the narrative that MSNBC doesn't criticize Democrats.  He was stating his nefarious intent, not lodging a complaint.

I was told the other day that local stations reporting on local gun crime is evidence of a media conspiracy to enact gun control laws. You see, since the internet exists, all news is national, and local media is in on it.

So as far as I can tell, this was national news.

I guess Fox News is part of the liberal media, then...

http://www.foxnews.com/search-results/search?q=bill+owens&submit=Sea rc h

I see a lot of articles about bills, but nothing about Bill Owens.

Throw in "Taiwan" - still nothing.

http://www.foxnews.com/search-results/search?q=bill+owens+taiwan 

Funny how a local public radio site is covering this. I thought public radio was a bastion of liberalism.

GOP congressman being investigated for illegal lobbyist based trip to Taiwan. Oh, wait a minute, he's a Democrat. That is why this is a link to a local news source and not MSNBC or CNN  or Fox News.

Fixed for subby.

It was mentioned in the WaPo yesterday, but I imagine subby was too busy not looking for articles mentioning it to notice.
 
2013-02-07 11:20:07 AM
A quick googling gave me articles on Huffington Post, Politico, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsday, Washington Post, Salon and more.
So what the heck is Subby on about?

The source that reported this is North Country Public Radio.  It's an NPR affiliate.  So either NPR is not a part of the "liberal media", or the "libs" aren't ignoring it after all.

And even Jon "Servant to the Dems" Stewart did his opening segment last night about Obama's drone memo and all that jazz.

So basically, JHP, STFU.
