More Mexican reporters doing the job American journalists won't do

Somebody sent me this link, a CSM story  that Univision- whose reporter actually asked Obama real questions- has a story coming up on Fast & Furious.  Then ran across this:
which story includes
Additional guns, previously unreported by congressional investigators, found their way into the hands of drug traffickers across Latin America in countries such as, Honduras and Colombia, as well as the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision’s findings “the holy grail” that Congress had been searching for.

So; if you paid attention only to the Official Media, you'd never have heard of Fast & Furious and the crap involved at all; if you listened only to them, you'd have been told that all you heard elsewhere was nothing but partisan political crap- and racist at that- from the Evil Republicans(ignore the conservatives and libertarians, they either don't count or count as Stupid Party members).  And now, while our media is chasing anything Romney says that might count as a 'gaffe', and ignoring anything bad Obama says or does, Mexican media actually investigates something our media could have- SHOULD HAVE- been digging into for years at this point.

Somebody said one reason the media really needs Obama reelected is that if he isn't, they're screwed by their own actions; sounds about right.

Maybe more time to yell about things tonight, but this I had to post on.

Actually those who HAVE been paying attention already knew that guns were being 'run' to those other countries - mostly to such stellar groups as ms-13. Ko-inky-dinkily the EXACT same tactics as were used in F&F were used in at least the following places: Texas (Dallas & Houston), Florida (Tampa or Miami - or both) and Indiana (oh wait - those just went to shykago - never mind); sorta puts the 'rogue agents' and 'republican witch hunt' theories in a new light.
Folks like Dave Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh have tried to track these 'stings' with some degree of success BUT they have been totally ignored by the lamestream media (and possibly by Issa & Grassley as well).........

Yep, they have; had to fight like hell to get Issa & Grassley to finally listen to them.

It's like the old man saying 'They don't care, unless one of their own dies.' We care; problem is, our media spent so much time and effort ignoring/covering-up/excusing this mess, most people never heard of it. Those that did, it was some little blip with Cummings or whoever saying "It's those racist Republicans going after Holder because he's black" and other assorted crap.

Well, this stands to get some attention; wonder if it'll make someone other than that reporter at CBS start actually REPORTING on this?
