Does the Media Care That Joe Biden's Daughter Was Arrested?

Considering the anal exam the Palins are getting, isn't it worth noting that Joe Biden's daughter has an arrest record?
A charge of obstructing a police officer against the daughter of U.S. Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.) was dismissed Tuesday after she apologized. Ashley Blazer Biden, 21, of Wilmington, Del., was with a group outside a North Side bar about 1:15 a.m. Aug. 3 when someone threw a bottle at an officer, said Jerry Lawrence, a spokesman for the Cook County state's attorney's office. When officers tried to make an arrest, Biden blocked one of them and made intimidating statements, police said. Circuit Court Judge William P. O'Malley dropped the misdemeanor charge after Biden and two of her friends apologized to police in court for their actions.
This happened less than six years ago.

Did the Obama team properly vet Joe Biden? Are we to have a man in high office whose daughter runs around making intimidating statements?

How come the media is hiding this story from the public? We must have a full and complete airing. How exactly did it come about that those charges were dropped? Since it was in Chicago, did then-State Senator Barack Obama wield any undue influence on the process? We must have sworn testimony from all officials involved proving there was no political influence in getting these charges dismissed.

Only then we will know if Joe Biden is fit to run as Vice President.

Joe Biden has now declared that children are off limits. Problem for him is Ashley was 21 at the time of her arrest.
With regards to the stuff you’re talking about. I have a simple proposition: Children are off limits.”
Back at the time, Biden also used the private matter defense.

A little late to the party, Joe.

Tell it to the Kos Kidz.

You folks opened this door. We're going to drive a Mack truck through it.

Update: I was only trying to contrast the treatment Bristol Palin has received from the media contrasted with the non-coverage of this Ashley Biden story. But since Lawhawk notes it in the comments, here's the item detailing Biden's son and brother's legal problems, also largely ignored by the media now salivating over the fortunes of a 17-year-old girl.
