At an early point in what was to be called the “Iran Contra Scandal”, members of the Reagan administration had considered invoking “executive privilege” in order to protect information and documents that would be detrimental to the president. All parties within the administration vetoed the idea as they said that it was cause a firestorm within the media.. Mind you, even at this point decades ago, the “impartial” media was well on its way to the complete “impartiality” towards the Hammer and Sickle Democratic Party that it wears on its vest as a badge of honor today..
Now we move to one of the OWEbama scandals, the “Fast and Furious” scandal. OWEbama and his administration quickly invoked “executive privilege” KNOWING that there would be NO similar Iran Contra Scandal “firestorm within the media”, as was precisely the case..
It is a “Tale of Two Cities”, Washington then versus Washington now and a tale of two Media, then versus now.
