Imagine that the Trump administration was singling out left-wing groups for discrimination, repression or punishment through both the revenue and justice system.
I think we can all guess what the reaction would be: foaming outrage across the media, furious editorials and op-eds, dissection of Trump’s vicious sectarian and vindictive personality and the charge that the US had turned into a fascist state.
Evidence has now surfaced confirming long-held claims that the Obama administration targeted conservative groups in just this way, and then tried to cover it up. Yet the media reaction has been muted, with coverage consisting mostly of brief news stories.
Of course: according to most of the media,Trump can do no right and the left can do no wrong. Well, now that story is beginning to turn on its head.
