More balanced conversations as usual (not).

Forty years after Watergate no journalist is concerned about the abuse of Executive Orders, Executive Privilege and contempt for the US Constitution for cynical and selfish political reasons so a President can keep himself in power?

How can one take this discussion seriously?
