FAIR takes a very damning look at the recent report by the Colombian government on U.S. military personnel and contractors raping at least 54 Colombian children. Have you read about that story? Probably not.
Yet here we are, over 72 hours since the Colombian and foreign press first reported on the allegations, and there’s a virtual media blackout in America over the case. Nothing on CNN, nothing on MSNBC, nothing in the New York Times or Miami Herald. Nothing in Huffington Post. Nothing inFusion or Vice. Why?
This is an excellent question. I just Googled "Colombia rape" and no U.S. news sources come up. This should be bigger news.
Update on 3/27/15: still no news story today.
Update again: Reporters are in fact starting to check it out and sort out the context of the commission report.
