What Liberal Media?

Most likely, you haven't heard of the Riggs Bank scandal.  Its a DC based bank under scrutiny for money laundering activities on behalf of the Saudis and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.  One of the bank's directors is Shrub Jr.'s uncle Jonathan Bush and another partner in the bank is longtime Bush family friend and financier Joe Allbritton.
Now yesterday, the Times wrote about Riggs, but as Holden (guest blogging on Atrios) points out, the article failed to mention either of the men mentioned above.  And he adds:
"If a blood relative and close friend/financier of Bill Clinton or John Kerry were deeply involved in a bank that laundered money for dictators and terrorists, what do you think the focus of the Times story would be?"
