They aren't covering NDAA either. Or the Mexican civil war.

It's not necessarily because of a conflict of interest, I think it's more down to failure of competence.

There is a clear agenda, the only failure is journalistic integrity.

They have to keep the masses ignorant of SOPA, Patriot Act, and NDAA, wouldn't want people to be upset with the destruction of the Constitution.

They are expecting the worst and so are now preparing for the worst. I am scared of things to come.

You imagine that the media takes its purported role of keeping the public informed on the most important news of the day seriously. That hasn't been true even moderately for the last decade at the least.

It's infotainment. There is no fundamental difference between CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, and techcrunch, or TMZ. The biggest differences are primarily stylistic.
