Solyndra executives and shareholders made hundreds of thousands of dollars to Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House and in an apparent quid pro quo was given over 1/2 Billion Dollars in Federal loan guarantees. On top of that Department of Energy officials regulary attended Solyndra Board Meetings as the Board steered the company over a cliff into a financial abyss.
You don't hardly hear a peep from the press over Solyndra while they chanted the Halliburton Mantra every chance they got during the Bush Administration. The press can widely be seen as a cheering section for Obama; turning a blind eye to his numerous contretemps while excoriating more responsible candidates for the 2012 presidential campaign. Obama was the press' guy because his advocated European style Socialism and being the idiots that they are they actually believe Socialism is good for the United States. In a pig's eye.
