The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

North Carolina media largely ignore Perdue data scandal

Written By: Bob - Dec• 21•11

Interested in finding out about North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue’s latest political scandal, uncovered right here in Raleigh by Carolina Journal Online? Don’t expect to read about it at the News & Observer (the only newspaper to successfully encourage a coup d’etat U.S. history) or WRAL-TV; nope, you can read about it at the source or a spun version at WTVD… and that’s about it.

It’s nice to know that when public officials are accused of committing violations of federal law that carries a fine of up to $250,000, up to five years in prison, or both, for each count, that the bulk of the media in the state can be counted upon to bury it if at all possible.
