The major media outlets are owned by huge corporations that all have one major motive: profits. If they thought this story was a big seller they would have sold it. If anything, this has more to do with their "discomfort" in covering these topics more than some liberal conspiracy. Just like the media didn't cover all the lies that got us into the Iraq war. And just like the media doesn't cover the major fraud that was perpetrated by Wall St. at the start of the Great Recession. You'd think a liberal media conspiracy would be all over those topics, no? The media has no backbone. That's the issue. This has nothing to do with some liberal conspiracy. It's a good story for your right wing propaganda outlets to get people like you stirred up. But it's crap. And you should be smart enough not to fall for it.
