The Big Secret

The national media likes to report the confusion of scientists trying to find out "Where's the Oil?" one year later. (Guess where!) Folks on the Gulf Coast are facing medical problems that threaten lives, and you hardly hear a word.

Outside of The Houma Courier, The Daily Comet and The Tri-Parish Times, their stories exist solely on blogs and Facebook — unless you visit Al Jazeera English, or sources in Germany, Belgium and elsewhere in Europe. A Swiss TV crew asks me why U.S. media aren't talking about this. It's a good question.

If there was ever a thing that would make you lose almost all faith in the ability of the national media to investigate news and inform the American people what is really going on in their country, living in Southeast Louisiana in the last 5 years or so should do the trick.
