  • It all depends on the news that you read.

  • They have been in some news reports but the msm buries them because "the earth is fine" does not make for a very interesting show. Bad for headlines.

  • Folks, you're laboring under the mistaken belief that the mainstream media spends time researching things.

    For MOST media outlets, they don't. Most CAN'T. Many newsrooms have been cut to the absolute bones to get daily coverage done. Many are getting to the point where they're having to share resources, including news cameras.

    Just watch. You'll see your local stations looking more and more the same all the time. And IF your local paper survives, it will do less and less.

    The stories being buried or ignored have NOTHING to do with MSM bias. If has EVERYTHING to do with MSM ignorance (I wasn't aware of this issue before today) and inability to go looking for this stuff.

    There have ALWAYS been untold stories and always will be...but there are more of them now.

    I am going to take a closer look at these links to see if there are any local contacts for me to do follow-up.
