UPDATE. Jennifer Rubin: “The question remains: how did he get hired?”

UPDATE II. Andrew Malcolm in the LA Times: “Additional criticism mounted when many major media outlets, especially TV, ignored the growing controversy.” Yep. It’s a controversy that was controversial enough to have someone booted from the White House, but not controversial enough for coverage.
