The big engines of established journalism have left their readers in the dark, recently, on the controversy leading up to the resignation of a senior White House adviser who publicly backed the charge that the former President of the U.S. was complicit in the murder of the 3,000 American citizens. To the extent that the major media covered the story at all, it made it sound as though the staffer was guilty of not much worse than talking like the average 13 year old.
If you inform yourself strictly at the linen and silver table of established journalism, then you are no doubt a little confused this morning by the story of the Senate vote to defund Acorn, the community organizing outfit that is lavishly funded by the government.
There is a lot of news out there that the behemoths of traditional journalism are not covering. Fortunately, there are ill-mannered bloggers and alternative outlets willing to take up the slack.
