Things the Press Finds Newsworthy: A Contrast

The cost of Michelle Obama's $467,000 vacation to Spain?  Not interesting. 
Michelle Obama's $540 sneakers for a soup kitchen photo op?  Yawn.
$424,142 in expenses racked up in a trip to South Africa and Botswana for Mrs. O, her daughters, and an entourage to include a hairdresser and makeup artist?  Ho-hum.

The cost of Ann Romney's designer shirt?  Suddenly we have some fascinating stuff.  At least worthy of a lead story on Politico.   

For $990, I would venture to say Mrs. R. got ripped off.  However, with the exception of the sneakers, Mrs. O's extravagances were covered by us.  The fish shirt was purchased with Romney money.

You're not suggesting Politicio is a blatantly partisan wing of the Democtatic Party's propaganda machine are you?

I think they have a few rogue reporters who are pretty biased, but overall I find them reasonably fair. You think they're a lefty rag?

ABC is now running this story too.

I don't think Politico is Daily Kos or Mother Jones, but it's absolutely establishment liberal.
