I certainly can't think of any other reason it has had so little coverage from the media. There aren't any other major news stories going on. North Korea has its place in the cycle, but nothing more. Wikileaks maybe, but that's it. Perhaps because it is no longer an election cycle and the damage has already been done. Or maybe the press is trying to keep us from noticing that our economy is improving even though the stunning unemployment rate remains pretty much near 10%. I dunno. Maybe it's because there just isn't any good ammo that out of work Americans can supply now that things in Washington are getting back to normal.
