Do I Have To Explain Everything To Mr. Krugman???

Paul Krugman, by way of Atrios:

So I have a question for my colleagues in the news media: Why isn’t the decision by the White House to stonewall on the largest corruption scandal since Warren Harding considered major news?

Well, if we suspend disbelief long enough to accept the premise that the media is easily distracted by shiny objects as opposed to being active collaborators in the Republican War On Truth, then the answer is quite simple:

The Bush White House stonewalling in the face of scandal is hardly newsworthy. Now, if they were open and honest about a scandal, that story would be front page all the way to Mars!

…Bitches.
