Strange, isn’t it, that it is so silent considering the media’s recent sudden realization that — gasp! — torture is a real issue. Recognizing this movement now would show the media’s own complicity in remaining silent on the issue of torture for decades. The media will recognize torture as a mere election year issue, but on its own terms, not facing up to the fact that torture is as American as apple pie.
