No, all they have to do is start an investigation, then say they won't comment on any on-going investigation, then make sure the investigation drags on so long that no one cares anymore by the time something comes out of it.

I should be making so much more money than I do.

but all that really hinges on the media. you've got to get them to ignore it long enough to fade from people's memories; find something else to distract them (i.e. a war or political scandal) and then publish the reports in the basement of a building with no electricity guarded by hellhounds. i don't think that's gonna happen in this case - the media is pissed. heads have to roll, and soon; chimp-in-chief's approval rating depends on it.

Dude, the new season of Every Reality Show On Earth is starting, people will get distracted, ratings and readership will decline, someone will get attacked by a shark or a white kid will disappear and problem solved.

yeah, but how easy do you think it'll be to get that shark to eat that white kid?

i think the way it's been covered so far, how quickly it's been crystalized into a race issue and an economic issue, will give it more staying power than you'd otherwise expect. and i think the general attitude is different this time, too - after 9/11, people were looking for answers and a head on a pike; after this, i expect people will be paying more attention to how the administration wiggles.
