Yesterday the Committee of the Judiciary of the House of Representatives sent a lengthy letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking a series of significant questions about the veracity of his statements under oath in recent Congressional testimony.
The lead headline at the website of the Washington Post this morning is: “Americans regain half of wealth lost since crisis.” The second story is “Assad says Syria has received missiles from Russia.” Further down the page one finds this: “FBI intercepts potential ricin-laced letter addressed to Obama.”
Meanwhile, over at NPR’s website the lead article is: “Breathing Easier: How Houston is Working to Clean Up Its Air.”
As of mid-day, neither the Washington Post, nor the New York Times, nor NPR has any story about the Holder investigation on its main website. If you go there to be informed of the lead stories of the day, this is simply not news.
And neither is the story, now highlighted in red on the Drudge Report, about the IRS auditing pro-Israel groups.
It is creepy but true that many people rely virtually exclusively on the New York Times, the Washington Post, and National Public Radio for “news” reports.
Sadly for the republic, these people are simply not well informed.
