Why the media hasn't been covering the ACORN and Van Jones stories

Politico has this discussion in the media on why they haven't been covering the ACORN and Van Jones stories.

On his radio show Tuesday, Scarborough debated the media’s coverage of ACORN and Van Jones with NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd, who said he believed these stories can be a “crutch” for conservatives looking to highlight instances of media bias.

“If the Christian Coalition, in 1995, had a sting operation carried on against it by a liberal group, I guarantee you it would have been front page, New York Times, the next day, “ Scarborough said, “and people like me would have been called out, people saying, ‘how could you ever, ever justify supporting a group that would teach people how to violate the tax code and promote prostitution.’”

Jon Stewart to state-run media: "You mean to tell me that two kids from the cast of High School Musical III broke this story with a video camera and their grandmother's chinchilla coat and you've got nothing?".
