Brokaw: Obama Scandals Not As Bad As Abu Ghraib
What a hypocrite. If this would have been Bush with any of these scandals he would have been impeached already. How Abu Ghraib compares is ridiculous.
Check it out:
Tom Brokaw did his very best to contextualize the numerous scandals pummeling the Obama Administration by saying they don’t rise up to the level of Watergate, Iran-Contra or even Abu Ghraib.
“I was covering Iran-Contra during the Reagan administration when [Peggy Noonan] was working for that president, in which we were funding a war illegally. We were trying to make a deal with the Iranians at the time. That was a pretty big damn scandal.”
Brokaw seems to be employing a tactic common among has-been journalists these days. They seem to be afraid that any story seen as “bigger” than the stories they covered in their day somehow diminishes their life work, and therefore any suggestion to this effect must be smacked down immediately.
