Charlie's Hibernation

Although announced for the end of this year, Charlie Gibson sounds like he retired a long time ago. Listen to him discuss, in a radio interview, his opinions on the ongoing ACORN scandal.
The Senate voted Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN, a community organization under fire in voter-registration fraud cases.
ACORN, with strong ties to President Obama, and a critical link in Democrats attempts to register unqualified voters, has finally been cracked open by a team of undercover filmmakers, who've engineered stings to reveal the nature of the organization. The tapes have been circulating over the past several days, forcing Democrats to withdraw support for what appears to be a criminal conspiracy.
The 83-7 vote came as ACORN , which stands for the Assn. of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is receiving bad publicity related to surreptitious videos. Two conservative activists posed as a prostitute and her pimp, then released a hidden-camera video in which ACORN employees in Baltimore advised the couple on house-buying and how to account for the woman's income on tax forms.
The voter fraud wing of the Democratic Party has been fired by the census bureau in light of the recent controversy, and now the U.S. Senate has voted to strip ACORN of all federal funding.
Two other videos, aired frequently on media outlets such as the Fox News Channel, depict similar situations in Brooklyn and Washington, D.C.
Telling the truth about the sleazy activities of friends of Democrats, funded with government money, is apparently not of interest for the liberal networks. These undercover tapes are offering some unique insights into the world of community organizing.
This scandal represents, for the first chance, since Reverend Wright tapes surfaced, for the American people to get a sense of just what type of people are now on the inside of American power.
At some point, the mainstream media, Charlie Gibson included, must take responsibility for failing to fulfill its obligation to the American people.
