MF Global's Corzine Continues To Get A Pass From Liberal Media

The tab for missing, improperly applied customer funds at MF Global has now risen to $1.2B, twice what was reported during the first week after the firm declared bankruptcy.

Yet, as Fox News' Charles Krauthammer observed, the liberal media continues to turn a blind eye to the potentially-criminal actions of former Goldman Sachs co-head, US Senator and New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine.

 Even CFTC chairman Gary Gensler, who recused himself on the case, has stated publicly that it looks very likely that Corzine committed criminal acts.

Yet the liberal Democrat, former Senator and Governor, is largely ignored by the New York Times, CNN and MSNBC.

Had Corzine been a Republican, you can bet he'd have been roasted, pilloried and tried in the media constantly as a criminal 1%-er.

There's your media double standard. Only, because the liberals are silent on this one, it's harder to see it for what it is.
