Just try to envision the scene: A newly elected Republican mayor of a large American city takes steps to close down some of the best schools serving an almost exclusively minority population. You know how it would go. We'd be hearing that Republicans "hate" the poor.

Remember the IRS scandal? It's gone. Poof. So flaccid has press interest in the story become that President Obama made bold in an interview with Fox News to say there was not a "smidgen of corruption" in the IRS' conduct. It requires terrific confidence in the passivity of the press to float...
