President Barack Obama's propensity to learn about scandals in the media is becoming legendary, says conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer.
Appearing as a panelist Monday on Fox News Channel's "Special Report,"
Krauthammer listed several scandals that the president says he learned of from the media, including the IRS targeting of conservatives and the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney added another to the list. Carney said Obama first learned
of the secret waiting lists at the Phoenix VA hospital from media reports.
