When a liberal newspaper reports on "an action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage" the word used is scandal, but only if it involves Republicans.

When a right-wing newspaper reports on a scandal relating to the Democrats then the word "bombshell" or "breaking" is used.
When an organization exposes an Imam's hateful comments about Jews, the word "Islamophobia" is used.
When the same organization translates an Imam's second sermon given a week prior to the one that is capturing a slight bit of media attention, the words that are used is 'taken out of context" and "mistranslated."
