    Why isn't media reporting on that? Probably for the same reason media isn't reporting on this:

    Sorry to be picky, but three are no dates on the last site, which references the others.

    From what I can read, the issues discussed have been covered thoroughly, as noted by WaPo and others. Can't get more MSM than that.

    This is supposed to be humor, right? The left plays Wheel of Fortune on which one of these topics they want to regurgitate on a daily basis.

    Be that as it may, it in NO WAY answers the question in the original post. Nothing but a deflection.

    Pulled that today. I'm not sure when Optruth posted it.

    I'm not sure a simple mention is "covering" a story. Were the references on page one or in a two inch long column on page 14. Try comparing it to how many times we heard about Dick Cheney's hunting accident or Patrick Kennedy's accident or the Natalee Holloway investigation. Now THAT'S coverage.

    Optruth is an intersting site in any event. These guys walk the walk and seem to tell it straight.
