I'm not a Christie fan but I do find it a little odd the amount of exposure this is getting compared to the IRS scandal which affected the presidential election, the NSA scandal which invades our rights, Benghazi in which four Americans were murdered, Fast and Furious where our government supplied Mexican drug cartels with guns, Obama knowingly lying to America (if you like your plan you can keep it) to get a massive disaster rammed through. It's like we are living in a twisted universe where up is down, and black is white. We are in serious trouble, and three more years of this may seal our fate. What has become of the media?

NSA, and IRS was proven as being nothing more then US policy. IRS investigated DFL as much as GOP parties. This was out right using taxpayer resources for personal retribution, and may have costs a elderly lady her life. As well as people losing their lively hood, because they could not get to work on time.

January 11, 2014 Christie scandal coverage: 17 times more stories in one day than 6 months of IRS coverage Rick Moran Media Research Center reports that there was 17 times more coverage of the Chris Christie bridge scandal in one day on the news networks than stories devoted to reporting on the IRS scandal. Washington Examiner: The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's traffic headache dubbed "Bridgegate," have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours. By comparison, that's 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama's IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. "While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee," said the conservative media watchdog. Since Wednesday night, NBC News included six reports over 14 minutes and 14 seconds. CBS devoted five reports over 12 minutes and 27 seconds. ABC managed 4 stories over seven minutes and 47 seconds, said MRC. As a comparison over the last six months, NBC featured five seconds on updating the IRS story. CBS responded with a minute and 41 seconds. ABC produced a meager 22 seconds.

"I do find it a little odd the amount of exposure this is getting compared to the IRS scandal which affected the presidential election, the NSA scandal which invades our rights, Benghazi in which four Americans were murdered,"..............No "exposure"???? Are you kidding?! Relentless, daily media coverage (mostly negative) on each of these issues went on for months and months. And, there you go again, "Benzhazi, Benghazi, Benghazi" - the new right wing buzz word. Sorry that the countless hearing and hundreds of pages of testimony turned up no particular wrong doing, but I'm sick of this one incident involving 4 lives has been exploited ad nauseam to look like 4000 or 400 lives were lost. What about Reagan's 93 embassy deaths or Bush's 45? I don't recall those causing such outrage after they occurred. It must be that O-haters just can't seem to drum up a real scandal.

Saintnick: you're clearly going way out of your way, quoting a conservative source, to prove the unprovable here. The IRS and Benghazi issues were covered relentlessly for months on end. Those were the ONLY things being covered with occasional breaks for Sandy Hook or a hurricane. As to the Christie debacle, Fox spent a total of 15 minutes in one day covering it went the scope of wrongdoing appeared last week.

Prove me wrong crystal. Show me another source that compares this to Obama's scandals.
