    ...ARE "self-censoring" this story, across-the-board, is feeding into a very strange zeitgeist, IMHO. The palpable nature of this aspect of the "state surveillance story" is one of the most incredible things I've witnessed in the U.S. media in my life (and, I've been a student of the media virtually my entire life, too). It's as if everyone's fearful of the blowback that might occur if these truths were fully embraced by the MSM.

    The bottom line is that the story of our government's "hoovering-up" of massive amounts of domestic phone call content, not to mention international call content (which a few MSM'ers are acknowledging), is taboo.

    We're literally just beginning to witness this narrative taking hold in the MSM (hopefully, since a greater truth is this has been discussed in public for at least a decade; actually for an entire generation, but very much in "background") since, much like the climate change issues and the twilight of this country's global power, it's a defining issue (albeit a tragically negative harbinger of things to come) of the history of our time, IMHO.

      ...makes the highly-obfuscated, "hoovering-up" of phone call content story on/by the NSA (both domestic and international), one with a history with very extensive roots originating in Israel.  Here's the Wiki link to NARUS.
