Wow. With all the news on all that is happening in Fergusun, i am surprised very few sites are reporting on this story about 2 members of the new black panthers, being arrested for trying to buy bomb making material. I searched, and neither fox nor cnn has it, heck not even any of the British papers (like the Guardian or daily mail) seem to.

You suck at searching.

It's obviously a big coverup that the mainstream media doesn't want you to know about. And that's only a couple of links from the websites you mentioned that you couldn't find the story on.

I don't know about a coverup but it has been underreported. Why I have no idea except that I suppose it is a matter of prioritizing news coverage which would engender an entirely different conversation

Someone elsewhere corrected me on fox having it, just under a different 'search parameter'.. And when i googled it, i didn't see the daily mail having it either.

I saw the story run on CNN's lead at the top of the hour. It was the first thing they mentioned.

How does one measure if something is "under reported"?

Have you and garkhal got a mathematic formula? Does garkhal email you the results of his Bing searches, and then you crunch the numbers on one of those old fashioned calculators that has a hand crank?

Is that how you two are determining it?

Here is another point to consider.

These guys don't sound like they were particularly well funded, or skilled terrorists.





According to the newspaper, police sources said it was unclear if the men had the capacity to actually carry out their plan. The two allegedly bought what they believed was a pipe bomb in an undercover operation and had planned to buy more.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the men had wanted to buy more of the “bombs,” but had to wait until one of their girlfriends’ Electronic Benefit Transfer card had more money.

That said, I'm glad we have the dynamic duo of garkhal and TJMAC keeping tabs on the lame-stream media.

If not for their Bing searches and trusty hand crank calculator, we'd be hopelessly duped.

Da-da-da-da-da garkhal! garkhal! garkhal!

BAM! BIFF! POW! ZONK!

Your humor attempts aside (again).....Watching a few hours per day of several news outlets, seeing it mentioned once while other stories are covered a half dozen or more times............my 'formula' for underreported.

From what was released it sounds like these two had aspirations, but no capability.

They got nabbed in a sting operation, paying for their sham pipe bombs with money from an EBT card.

I'm guessing you'd be calling any network that went with wall-to-wall coverage on that story idiotic.

What more do you want?

Hey, i am just trying to bring up something i thought merited conversation.
BUT that point about the bombers having to 'wait for his Girlfriend's EBT card to refill before he could buy more stuff, makes me wonder if/when they are going to charge HER with being an accomplice/accessory, and if they will cancel her EBT card for fraud/waste/abuse..??

Not wall to wall coverage. BUT more than just a brief mention on one day, and a few ticker tape mentions.

It was definitely not "breaking news" on the networks. Not once did it interrupt a show I was watching. I'm not sure about under reported, but definitely a much lower priority than other stories, like protesters and the Thanksgiving parade.

That has more to do with it happening last week on November 19.

I saw it covered over the weekend and on Monday.
