I have a precedent for this scenario. I saw it happen.
There was a murder in 1998, when a Catholic priest was brutally killed in cold blood.
It happened in Dane, Wisconsin, on the evening of March 3rd, or the morning of March 4th. They still have not decided on which date is the one of record.
I heard about this right away, through friends, and I was scandalized that it was not front page news. A Catholic priest was brutally murdered, and no major news agency was willing to cover the story. No newspapers in America ran it. No CNN or Fox News or ABC. Nothing.
The news blackout was so thick, people at local parishes (I visited several) disregarded my printed material, saying that it couldn't have happened because it was not in the news! Something like that would have surely been front page news!
What about the so-called Catholic Press? Even there, complete silence. Circle Media was silent. The Tidings in Los Angeles was mute. So I got busy. I did several things, in my own, small way.
First, I called those 'Catholic' newspapers and spoke to the editors. My jaw dropped. They told me they were aware of the story, but they chose not to run it. I asked them all: "How could you NOT run such a story, when you know it happened? Isn't that what newspapers are for?" Their answer was telling. They actually told me this, and it wasn't just from one of them, they all said it. They said they didn't think it would be good for the readers to hear about it. It was too upsetting. They didn't want their readership to be upset. And besides, NOT running the story was not a choice they made out of what's right or wrong, but rather, it was a matter OF INTELLIGENCE. Tod Tamberg at The Tidings told me that, word for word.
In other words, they thought that they would be stupid to run it. They didn't even run an obituary -- for a Catholic priest who had died!!
So just maybe, by the same reasoning, American news outlets did not run the story of the Iceland revolution because they thought they would be stupid to run it. Shudder at the thought of losing credibility
. They don't want to be called "crackpot!"
