Laura Ingraham says the media is covering whistleblower story to distract from the economy Written by Media Matters Staff Published 09/19/19 10:47 PM EDT Video file Citation From the September 19 edition of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Democrats don't really care about whistleblowers. Does anyone remember what the Obama administration's attitude was toward whistleblowers? The liberal Guardian newspaper characterized it this way: “Obama's war on whistleblowers leaves administration insiders unscathed." And the American media responded with a collective yawn to all of that. But boy, they're all about the whistleblower tonight. They need something, anything to avoid talking about Trump's actual record. The U.S. economy is the envy of the world.
