The formerly mainstream media has consigned itself to the dung heap with their ignorance of the "pimp and the prostitute" undercover videos from New York this morning. Big Government posted the reports at 12:35 a.m., proving ACORN chief organizer Bertha Lewis a liar. That still is not worthy of news stories -- anywhere -- on the homepages of the New York Times, USA Today (have they done any stories yet?), Washington Post, CBS News, NBC News (and its cable offerings), ABC News, or CNN Sucks.

No excuses. They've had nearly half-a-day to at least link to some kind of report -- even a couple of sentences -- about the development. They all do with other types of breaking news. They watch Drudge constantly, like the rest of us news junkies, who has the story up. Yet still nothing. Also, the Census Bureau dumped ACORN on Friday and still no original reports from anyone other than ABC's Jake Tapper -- in a blog post.

So why this organization -- that serially enables prostitution, tax evasion, child sex trafficking and voter fraud after they enhanced the ability of our current president to get elected -- get a pass from the traditional journalists? Because just like ACORN, they know their credibility is shot and to give the story the attention it deserves underscores their own sorry behavior.
