Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You write:

The WaPo broke the torture story in the summer of 2002 in a front page article. No one gave a fuck.

Who is "No one"? Isn't the problem precisely that common wisdom, as defined, repeated and amplified by pundits, is no longer linked to the actual news content of their own papers? And then the background just ignores the news that have been published in one article, and gets repeated endlessly despite being lies?

Who is responsible for that common wisdom?
