Hurricanes, Then and Now | Power Line
...Still, you might think the cognitive dissonance would be overwhelming for reporters more than 20 years old, who presumably remember how the press covered Katrina.

And Barack Obama, for whom the hurricane existed only as an excuse to don a bomber jacket, is mentioned only to note Chris Christie’s praise for him. About the federal response to Hurricane Sandy, whatever it may have been, not a word.

That’s how it goes in the world of media: if it weren’t for agenda journalism, we wouldn’t have any journalism at all.
