If this had happened during the Bush Administration....

...CNN would have already created a unique Scandal: Day One theme score to play along with the coverage running every quarter-hour.  Instead, we get the lovely sound of...crickets:

Perhaps the biggest story in the political world since the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Bill Clinton in the 1990s, although the Senate refused to remove him from office, is the fact that this week a subpoena from the House was issued to the entire top tier of the Obama Administration. Yet as of today the big media outlets--ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post--have ignored the story entirely. And if they did mention it in passing, it was buried on a back page or relegated to an inconspicuous web page while never seeing the light of day on the air. Only Fox gave the story top billing.

Ed Driscoll:

Big media complicity in the news blackout is a heavy indictment against modern journalism in America today.

But it ain't just "big" media...Yahoo News had these three top stories under political as of 11AM (click to enlarge):

~Obama's MLK moment
~TIME Poll: Obama Still Ahead of GOP Rivals, Voters Side With Dems on Taxes
~Obama’s money: How big an advantage is it?

"Remain calm, all is well...."
