Politics and Integrity

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Tampa Properties

Politics and Integrity, obviously do not go hand in hand!  If they did, most politicians at every level; federal, state, county and city should resign immediately.  But, now the integrity of the news media is at stake also!

The recent bruha over the fact that the head of the CIA, David Petraeus, had an affair and then took the high road and willingly resigned, makes me have more respect for him than others before him who have fought hard to keep their jobs when involved in a scandal of similar nature. 

The media, behaving like a pack of rabid dogs over this story makes me wonder about their ability to accurately report news at any level.  Why did they not investigate and report fully the events of the Benghazi debacle, why no continued followup?  Instead, the story was news for a day or two and then back to the election with a massive "so what".

Now, the head of the CIA, and someone who should have been quizzed at length about the Benghazi attack is embroiled in a sex scandal and the news media is foaming at the mouth with time lines, specials and news features.

I guess sex sells and dead people do not matter! 

 

Just my two cents.

Steven - that's a good question. I remember one of our recent president who was involved in a scandal, and did not resign, simply declared that he did not think it was sex, and nothing happened

Great role models for our younger generation.  It seems that intIegrity is really old fashioned!  I was one of those simpletons who thought Petraeus would go in to the hearing today and tell what really happened, but was wrong!  Good hearing from you.
