Libya story ignored

I simply cannot believe my eyes. The Spokesman-Review is going to ignore the biggest story of the entire decade?

The ongoing story of the death of our ambassador in Libya? The failure of our government to anticipate his need for more protection? The failure of our government to send help when requested; not once, but at least three times? The deaths of the three fine people who stood by him and were murdered by terrorists? The fact that the administration kept calling this a riot caused by a video when it was obviously a terrorist event? The fact that they even watched the attack on video?

How can I continue to give this paper any credibility? And someone there will no doubt wonder why subscriptions are down and continue to languish.
