Via @RollCall: Left's Response Far From Fast and Furious

Roll call has this story about the Democrats' muted response to yesterday's announcement that Congressman Darrell Issa was moving ahead with a vote to charge Attorney General Eric Holder with Contempt of Congress for his stonewalling related to responding to the subpoena for documents about the disastrous Operation Fast and Furious.
Is it still a fight if only one side is throwing punches?
Roll Call has a point.  Last Friday, Cam Edwards, host of NRANews.com's Cam and Company also made a good point during the round table discussion when he suggested that the longer the story goes on without coverage, the greater the chance it will die out.  And that is what the Democrats and the Administration are hoping.  CBS News' Sharyl Attkisson is the only member of the "mainstream" media that has dedicated significant time to the story over the last 15 months.  By contrast, NBC News has not even run one story on its nightly news, not even after Holder gets beat up in testimony on the Hill.  You would think that a sitting AG getting pummeled during an appearance before Congress would be news.  One has to wonder if the House indeed does vote to hold the AG in contempt, whether NBC and others (i.e. New York Times and Washington Post) can continue to ignore the story.
