Are the News Media Scared of ACORN?

“Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise?” is the title of a July 2009 U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform report by Congressman Darrell Issa. The report draws some shocking conclusions: “The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has repeatedly and deliberately engaged in systemic fraud. Both structurally and operationally, ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors…” It is a shocking statement to absorb: “to conceal a criminal conspiracy.” Yet you won’t see this on your TV unless you happen to be watching Fox News. Others are refusing to report this corruption. America is a country that is dependent on a dynamic, bombastic, independent and informative free press. During every period of great change and trial, we have relied on the honesty and unbridled courage of America’s press to help us find solutions to our problems.
