What Did They Ignore and When Did They Ignore It?

Guessing that most working journalists today, if you asked them, would say that the movie All the President's Men is in their all-time Top 10's. Many would also probably credit that movie for why they got into journalism in the first place. Yet somehow the key journalistic lessons from the movie of "what did they know and when did they know it" and especially "follow the money" suddenly disappear when it comes to stories about Democrat politicians or China.

These "journalists" who grew up with visions of being the next Woodward or Bernstein suddenly become Helen Keller when those two subjects are broached. And then they wonder why most Americans view them with such distrust. And for many - disgust.
