Progressive Hypocrisy On Collective Bargaining

According to AP, the White House is denouncing a vote by the Wisconsin Senate to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from government workers, calling it an assault on public employees.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama believes it is wrong for Wisconsin to use its budget troubles "to denigrate or vilify public sector employees."

If there is any journalistic integrity left, I guess we should expect reporters to ask the Obama Administration why no federal employee has collective bargaining rights while also asking labor union leaders why they are not protesting the federal government for not granting them their "civil rights" as they see it.

But since honest journalism died a while back, we should expect no such intellectual integrity from the media to ask the appropriate questions or the Administration and the unions to answer them.
