...why hasn't CHCH, CBC Hamilton, The Spec or say one of our community news papers with actual press credentials stepped up to the plate?

That's easy, they're mainstream, they're repeaters not reporters and they're waiting for their pinch hitter. Compare these two stories and you'll see one is a repeater and the other is a reporter of news that really matters.

IT ain't rocket science -Hammer-. Per this example, if controlling (national) interests were to be jeopardized by the whole story, we're given shorter stories or outright fairy tales. More often, we're distracted from the real issues by that which is trivial.

There is power in alternative media when used properly yet this article is a prime example of weak notoriety. The rating for this article and subsequent comments stands at -1% (-2 votes out of 188 cast) whereas this article carries a rating of 89% (33 votes out of 37 cast). If anyone disagrees, that this polling apparatus does not in fact reflect the quality of the article and subsequent discussion, please provide a contrary example should you have one.
