How come fat cat lawyers get off so lightly?

I'd like to highlight the discrepancy in media coverage between the issue of GPs' pay and the miners' compensation scheme, which has seen lawyers pocket £1.3bn according to the Public Accounts Committee.

The popular media seems not to want to mention it. Perhaps it is too influenced by a Government made up to a large extent of former lawyers, or am I too cynical?
