That's what you call journalism

Tyler, Texas (KETK) — One of the best articles I have seen so far about "bridge-gate" showed up this past weekend in the New York Post.
Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey is being accused of retaliating against political enemies by causing traffic jams in their cities.
The writer, John Podhoretz, just nails it. First of all he says everyone can relate to bad traffic, so most understand. We all have to deal with the IRS and the taxes but this, as Hollywood would say, is more relatable.
According to the writer ,"In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they've allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama's Internal Revenue Service controversy."
Christie belongs to one political party and President Obama belongs to the other. You know which ones they belong to. And you know which ones the people at the three networks belong to, too. In surveys going back decades, anywhere from 80 to 90 percent of Washington's journalists say they vote Democratic.
It's actually more personal, more relatable, shall we say, than that.
Journalists know the Obama voters, intimately. They know them from college, they know them from work, they know them from kids' soccer. They're literally married to them.
To the journalists, the Obama supporters don't look like crooks and cheats, far from it/ For them, it's like looking in a mirror.
That's why they will continue to rip Christie apart like buzzards while the president and Hillary (Clinton) answer no questions about the IRS or the Benghazi attack.
This guy from The Post nailed it.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
