Obama: "Do I Scare You Yet?"...............................from Dan Friedman

[Can you hear the alarms? The warnings are coming in fast and furious. I think you can easily draw a short straight line between this item and the IRS scandal. Abusing the organs of power to intimidate and punish your political opponents - it may be the Chicago way, but it ain’t American. df]

News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.
