The news media would not like to have the distraction of an investigation into Roland Burris’s possible perjury regarding his relationship with Blagojevich, of the “senate seat for sale scandal”

The Republicans are calling for his resignation, but the news media would not like to see, since “It’s not the kind of distraction Senate Democrats need as they try to move forward the president’s agenda“.
Also it’s difficult for the media to use the D word in association with Burris, these days. There must be something to this story…..
