Our News Media is failing us.

Did you hear about Paris Hilton? and Brittany Spears? And again, did you hear how Cheney is running the government? How about the new Idol?.....

Actually did you hear or read anything about this?
Where's the New York Times? Washington Post? ACLU? Congress? Anybody? (chirp, chirp)

Two weeks ago, the London Sunday Times broke an exclusive story about FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds.

According the Times article, the U.S. government sought to gag Edmonds from revealing that corrupt government officials — specifically, State Department official Marc Grossman — were directly involved in the stealing and selling of nuclear secrets to foreign agents. In her role as translator, Edmonds listened in on, or translated, hundreds of secretly intercepted conversations between State Department officials and foreign nationals from 1996 to 2002.

This hasn't even made Drudge yet.
