This is an excellent point and one that most people don't seem to grok. You can often get as much information from what some group doesn't say as from what they do say. Even if the "liberal media" didn't want to report something like that, there are ample opportunities and means for the right wing to "make the facts known". They have the motivation, they have the money, and they have access to their own news outlets. Yet, nada. Why? Are they stupid? Did it not occur to them? Or do they simply not have an example to trot out that would stand up to any kind of scrutiny?

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
