Well, The Major News Outlets Didn't Have a Gannon Story Yet

When will this happen?

As I don't read blogs like Gannon for my news, I need to know when this crushing breaking story will flood the airwaves - Remember, 60 Minutes doesn't count.

So what does?

Fox "news"?

CNN has talked about it, CBS has talked about it, MSNBC has talked about it..

What is your criteria?

This is a breaking story per you extremists. This is NEWS!!! Where are the headlines? Where is the primetime coverage on non-cable news? Where is the feigned, er I mean outrage that we need to be displaying?

Tonight's coverage of local news started with a rock thrown into a car and ended with a dog that found his way home - nothing at all about gay prostitutes selling sex for news.

I just want to know when this big stuff gets off the blogs and Communist News Network and moves to mainstream?

Boy, USA Today missed the scoop. They have Jacques Chirac on the cover instead. Unless he is a gay prostitute, they have really screwed up, haven't they?

He must mean FOX News and Spewsmax haven't mentioned it...because most other major outlets certainly have. Even the RWNJ World Net Daily has.

Actually, I meant the standard non-cable television outlets. Did ABC News report? I know NBC did not tonight. Did CBS?

And again, nothing in the headlines of the major newspapers?

Personally, I don't watch Fox, I don't know what spewmax is, and I don't waste my time with the Communist News Network either.

Yet they report North Korea, Jacques Chirac, and the Lubbers Scandal.

I wonder how they missed such a big story?

Bush is looking for good cowboys I heard tonight.

Missed the upcoming impeachment hearings for gay reporters.

Watergate didn't get much mainstream coverage at first either....

Nor Teapot Dome.

Yes, this is "Watergate" material, isn't it?

And you obviously are no history major, are you?

The Watergate Hotel was broken in on June 17, 1972. 5 men were arrested and the story broke on the Washington Post the very next day. It made national news on all three networks immediately thereafter.

Here is the original story:

Watergate Hotel Scandal 5 Held in Plot to Bug Democrats' Office Here



By Alfred E. Lewis
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, June 18, 1972; Page A01

Five men, one of whom said he is a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency, were arrested at 2:30 a.m. yesterday in what authorities described as an elaborate plot to bug the offices of the Democratic National Committee here.

Three of the men were native-born Cubans and another was said to have trained Cuban exiles for guerrilla activity after the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion.

They were surprised at gunpoint by three plain-clothes officers of the metropolitan police department in a sixth floor office at the plush Watergate, 2600 Virginia Ave., NW, where the Democratic National Committee occupies the entire floor.


You will note the page number, A01, indicating it was the top story on the front section of the Post.

I think you are wrong.

I don't think the networks covered it until weeks later.

Unless you are only talking about the break in itself.
And that would have been a minor story.

The real story didn't come out for quite a while.

It was FIRST PAGE MATERIAL. The link is DIRECT from the Washington Post. And it made national news IMMEDIATELY. The stories of people claiming to be "Anti-Communists" protecting us from the evil Democrats made the national news immediately. I saw Earl Silbert's face more in that week than I saw my own mother's.

Of course it couldn't, because no one knew the whole story, it took two reporters that wouldn't drop the story to break it.

Gannon closing his website after being "exposed" was just the start.

You're talking about the Washinton Post in 1973, KC.

In case you hadn't noticed, the media has changed a bit the last few decades.

I was only 6 years old at the time, but my mother is sitting in the room, and she isn't remembering it the way you say you do.
