Press has become weaponized

The FISA-gate scandal is reminiscent of the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals in that they all involved abuse of power by weaponizing government factions against political rivals. The main differences are that Watergate was relentlessly covered by a Nixon-hating media and Iran-Contra and was also well covered by a Reagan-hating media. FISA-gate involves weaponizing both the FBI and DOJ, from all indications, and is a far greater abuse of power, but we see a Democrat-loving/Trump-hating media defending these actions and failing to report evidence of wrongdoing as it’s exposed. The press, our main defense against political wrongdoing by publicizing wrongdoing, has become weaponized.
