TOP STORY: The media always seem to be hesitant to cover scandals in the Obama White House, but this one barely makes the Metro section, if at all. Cliff Kincaid reports: “It may not be the biggest scandal of the Obama Administration, but the collusion between the Department of the Interior and the Occupy Wall Street movement has caught the attention of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. This, in turn, has led to some coverage by the media of the illegal takeover of public parks in Washington, D.C., and the damage that has been allowed to occur by top Obama officials.” http://bit.ly/uChDPc
MEDIA WATCH: It takes a lot to get MSNBC Anchor Chris Matthews to apologize to someone on live television. When a Republican is the damaged party, that’s even rarer. Don Irvine reports: “MSNBC’s Hardball host swallowed hard and issued an apology last night for a story that aired earlier in the day on the network, which linked a slogan in a Mitt Romney video to the KKK.” http://bit.ly/tmbyJN

WHAT WE’RE READING: AIM guest columnist Peter Gadiel takes an interesting look at the recent MF Global scandal involving former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine: “It seems pretty clear that if you’re on the public payroll, whether you are elected, appointed, or in civil service, you never, ever, pay a price for your negligence or corruption. Pity Jon Corzine; he just didn’t get out of the habit.” http://bit.ly/u8ftG0
