Tapper pats self on the back for tracking down the Churchill bust.
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/07/is-the-chu... /

Meanwhile, the media has completely dropped the story about a Romney advisor making a racist remark in London about a sitting POTUS without getting fired by Romney. (Contrast that with a Greek athlete being sent home from London (after years of training) for an allegedly racist tweet she made while still in Greece.

Why is tracking down the bust more important than Romney's snarking in London about a sitting POTUSs allegedly removing the bust?

What happened to the rule that dissing a sitting POTUS while abroad is totally out of bounds for politicians?

Maybe Tapper should have spent less time tracking down a bust of a long dead British prime minister so he could spend some time on the above two issues, which involve racism, dissing our own sitting and stirring pots with our ally.

And I just emailed ABC about that.

I hope someone else does the same. http://abcnews.go.com/Site/page?id=3271346&cat=ABCNews....

2. Even being Republican is no excuse for horrific journalism.
