Given the fact that the Freedom of Information Act had been invoked in relation to the Ketchum/Education Department contracts back in October, why did it take three months for the Armstrong Williams mess to come out? Because the elite media and their friends at the People for the American Way knew a storm was brewing over the CBS scandal. They held on to the Armstrong Williams story, sat on it, until it served a useful purpose for their associates in the established media at CBS. Through USA Today the story was disclosed a mere one business day before the CBS internal investigation was released, the timing for which media insiders surely knew quite well. By doing so they rationalized turning attention away from the CBS scandal.
This brings a couple of questions to mind. Wouldn't breaking the Williams story in October of last year have had the same effect when CBS could have used it more? And why would the liberal media sit on a story until January when releasing it in October of last year might have damaged the President's electoral prospects?
Bill Hobbs seems intrigued by the idea.
