'The news' isn't merely an assembly of facts, as literally hundreds to
thousands of those spring forth on any given day. Rather, the news
comprises stories that have "significance". And, here in the U.S., news
organizations actually compete to *include* those stories for their
readership. So, when an otherwise freely available fact is seized upon
by a single, narrow outpost of the press corps, you'd do well to sniff
it for the noxious aroma of Agenda. But surely that's not news, is it?
