Without An Obama Scandal At Hand, Fox News Finds It Necessary To Imagine One

Reported by Ellen - May 27, 2011 -

Now that the birth certificate Trump-A-Palooza has fizzled out and that all-important controversy over the invitation of rapper Common to the White House has run its course, Fox News seems to be casting around for its next attack on Obama. Apparently at a loss, Fox is now imagining one. On Fox Nation, a recent post is called, Sabato's Crystal Ball: Obama Due for Major Scandal. Can you say, "wishful thinking?"

The post is subtitled, "Where Are the Obama Scandals?" and is written by Brendan Nyhan, Guest Columnist, for Sabato's Crystal Ball, May 26th, 2011

One of the least remarked upon aspects of the Obama presidency has been the lack of scandals. Since Watergate, presidential and executive branch scandal has been an inescapable feature of the American presidency, but the current administration has not yet suffered a major scandal, which I define as a widespread elite perception of wrongdoing. What happened, and what are the odds that the administration's streak will continue?

You can bet your "fair and balanced" mantra that Fox News will be doing everything possible to find that next scandal ASAP - even if they have to manufacture it..
