    That the media is largely ignoring the fact that the Vice President was almost murdered today?

    According to media reports, the VP was nowhere close to where the explosion went off. He was in no danger at any time. The explosion was not related to his visit.
    It it WAS an assassination attempt, the terrorists had even worse aim than Cheney does.

    They reported on it when he was actually there. Let everyone know where he was. The bomb didn't work. Therefore no story for them.

    No, he wasn't. If you had actually paid any attention to the news reports, you would have known that he was well inside the base and well out of harm's way. Or are you just trolling?

    Should the fact that he was inside the base change the fact that the Taliban targeted him?

    And how is anyone supposed to pay attention to the news reports that havent been given? Thats the whole point of the thread. There is hardly any mention of it at all anywhere. If it hadn't been mentioned in the blogs or on other message boards, Id have no idea anything actually happened.

    You are the only one a little disturbed.

    Actually, they gave it a lot of coverage on the radio station I always listen to.

    I got so sick of hearing about it on every channel I had that I just turned my TV off. And it wasn't an attempt on his life because they didn't even know he was there. He slipped in unannounced.

    Hey, Avatar, if you really want to know how the libs feel about this incident, you'll have to check out the lib blogs. They were only too sorry that the "insurrectionists" didn't get the job done.

    I heard all about it... from more than one source, not sure why you think it was ignored... where do you usually go for news?
