Why is the Media Passing on Corzine-Obama Connection?

When Enron was indicted for fraud, the media was quick to make the Texas connection between Ken Lay and George W. Bush. They repeated this endlessly over years as they sought to tie the two guys together. According to Dick Cheney, George W. Bush never really liked Ken Lay and wouldn't give him the time of day, while the elder Bush had some ties, but wouldn't call them close friends. Anyway, I digress:

When it comes to Obama's personal connections, the media clams up. The media has refused to go into detail about the close relations between Obama and Blagojevich. They have refused to talk about Obama and another Chicago jail bird, Rezco. They have refused to connect the dots between Bill Ayers and Barack Obama.

And now, just when the media is going GA GA over the OCCUPY WALL STREET protests, and they are slamming Wall Street bankers every day. And in the middle of all this, a Wall St. firm, MF Global, run by Obama buddy Jon Corzine, goes BANKRUPT! Not only that, but his firm sequestered clients cash, which is illegal.

Sound like a juicy story? The president is best buds with a Wall Street firm who not only goes bankrupt, but stole clients' cash, right in the middle of the Occupy Wall Street Protests. To me it sound like it could be the story of the decade. But, if it sounds like a juicy story to you, then you're wrong. This story has all but been ignored by the media.

Why is the media refusing to report anything about Corzine-Obama?
