Why Is the Media Covering Up The Kill Team Story?

It's not that I want them to go hog-wild in attempting to destroy the armed forces with this story.

It's that I can only think of one explanation for why they did just that with respect to Abu Ghraib but have yet to ask Obama a single question about multiple murders.

Everyone who is honest know why. Now that our former "cowboy president" has given way to our "international out-reach artist," nothing which might end up in the minus column of Barack Obama's presidential ledger will be given remotely the same treatment. As of this writing, there has been no speculation about how high up the chain of command the current debacle goes, or what the president and/or his advisors knew, or when they knew it. No officers have been fired, as a brigadier general was during Abu Ghraib incident. "60 Minutes" has yet to do a show. Photos of the murdered victims haven't been plastered night after night on every news channel in the country. None of the current defendants have been turned into household figures the way Specialist Charles Graner "and his former fiancee," Specialist Lynndie England, were during Abu Ghraib. The bet here is that no Americans, other than dedicated news hounds, could name a single defendant in the current case.

Again, I bring this up not to illuminate the deficiencies of our military. It is our mainstream media which have revealed that there are no limits to their own depravity. Don't believe it? Ask yourself when the media ever downplayed a multiple-murder story, or soft-pedaled a military scandal. Ask yourself how it's possible that president Obama has neither been asked single a question, nor made a single statement about these murders, despite the fact that they occurred in 2009, and that Specialist Jeremy Morlock of Wasilla, AK pleaded guilty to the crimes last week.

Reality check: the mainstream media is engaged in arguably one of the most damning and deliberate errors of omission ever orchestrated in order to protect "their man" in the White House. And take it to the bank that such "selective reporting" is going to increase exponentially the closer we get to the 2012 election. Our self-admitted cocaine-sniffing, communist mentored, paper-trail-less, terrorist associating occupant in the Oval Office will never be subjected to remotely the same journalistic rigor that will be directed at whomever his Republican opponent turns out to be.
