What's Wrong With This Picture?

For the second time in two weeks, the entire U.S. press has let itself be scooped by Rupert Murdoch's London Sunday Times on a dynamite story of criminal activities by corrupt U.S. officials promoting nuclear proliferation. But there is a worse journalistic sin than being scooped, and that is participating in a cover-up of information that demands urgent attention from the public, the U.S. Congress and the courts.

For the last two weeks --- one could say, for years --- the major American media have been guilty of ignoring entirely the allegations of the courageous and highly credible source Sibel Edmonds, quoted in the London Times on January 6, 2008 in a front-page story that was front-page news in much of the rest of the world but was not reported in a single American newspaper or network.
Aussie readers must explain why the US media refuses to cover this explosive story, and why our own media is also ignoring it.

More at Common Dreams. Have we got traction yet???

You still reading my shitty little blog, Luke??? :-)

Keep up the great work mate. I have been following the Sibel story without necessarily linking as much as I should. Now it's out in the open, it will be very interesting how it unfolds.

Gandhi, if you stop blogging, or even talk about stopping this exercise in futility, I'll come and find you, and when I do you'll wish we'd never met.

Aha! The ever elusive Abby raises her (?) head!

Thanks for all your promotional work, Abby. Much, much appreciated - and for a good long time indeed.

You rock.
