It is apparently illegal or at least immoral for a mainstream American journalist to mention the disenfranchisement of blacks in Florida, and completely beyond the pale to comment on the illegitimate status of the current inhabitant of the White House. Indeed, even the recount going on in Florida is now being misleadingly reported, as if it would be unpatriotic and perhaps dangerous for the welfare of the country if the truth were to come out. It reminds me of the lies of the Warren Commission, where well-meaning officials managed to convince themselves that the American public couldn't handle the truth, and thus should be deceived for the good of the country.
