Cheney, Gonzales Indicted in Texas

But you would never know it from reading newspapers. Funny, though this article is online at the Citizen-Times, but there is no link to it from the home page. You have to find it through search.

The New York Times has this, but waaaay at the bottom in the "News from the AP" section.

Closer to the action, the Houston Chronicle has it on the front page, here.

USA Today (don't worry, I looked, so you don't have to) has nothing. But they do have a hard-hitting expose on the 30th anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre. Yaaaaawn.

Let's see... who else....?

Wall Street Journal? Nope. Above the fold puff piece about Hil for State.

Anyone else find this amazing? A sitting (even lame-duck) VP and a former Attorney General of the US have been indicted by a Grand Jury and you have to go out of your way to read about it.

Nice sleuthing, Bill. My guess is the press is waiting for the judge to sign the indictment before jumping on the story. We'll see...

Interesting timing as well. There's still time, if Cheney is formally indicted, for Bush to pardon him.

You got it Mama. Bush is very apt to go out in a blaze of pardons.

Of course, there is no statute of limitations and no pardon for murder. Let's hope Cindy Sheehan and others avail themselves of the legal tactic explained in former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's book "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder."

Then we'll find out whether the Cuban news service reports about the Bush compound in Uruguay were true. (Bush has allegedly purchased thousands of acres in Uruguay, adjacent to the land owned by Sun Myung Moon, and already stationed U.S. forces there -- after Uruguay signed a non-extradition treaty with the U.S.).

yeah, the press waits for "confirmation" when it is an evil venomous lowlife like Cheney, but they just go right ahead and print outright rumors about other people.

Not to put too fine a point on it or anything.

It's Texas guy. The Willacy County indictment will get canceled out via the nearest judge with federal jurisdiction. That's why no one's taking it seriously.
