The Story That Isn't?

Charging RINO has a worthwhile post about how the media might be playing up a story concenring Judge Roberts that may not be a story at all, at least not yet.

Several media outlets are talking about certain records concerning the judge and about how the White House haven't released those records. The problem is, there is very little evidence that the White House is with holding records and very little evidence that the Dems are demanding them.

Alan over at the Yellow Line, has some choice words for a media too used to reporting partisan fights:

This kind of shoddy journalism feeds right into the wants of interest groups determined to turn what should be a civil nomination process into an all-out war. In fact, I would not be surprised that the "document issue" was manufactured by left-leaning interest groups in an attempt to invent a crisis. The fact that the media would latch on to such a non-story is incredibly disappointing.

Would such groups contrive a story? I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Let's let the nomination process happen and let's let Roberts get a fair hearing so that we can determine if he deserves to be the next Associate Justice on the High Court. Stop with the shoddy journalism.
