My God, it's a newspaper

The top story in the Washington Post this morning is an article about how the Vice-President is actively engaged in the campaign to allow torture.

Over the past year, Vice President Cheney has waged an intense and largely unpublicized campaign to stop Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department from imposing more restrictive rules on the handling of terrorist suspects, according to defense, state, intelligence and congressional officials.

I'm in a state of gratified astonishment. The fact that it has been going on for a year is enough to make the vast majority of news organizations regard it as not news at all - which is part of the reason WHY it doesn't get publicized.

Well, maybe the Washington Post has actually realized that if their readers don't know about it, it's news.
