On the day after the legal team of the President of United States was arrested in Georgia for the "crime" of representing their client, Donald Trump, who will himself be arrested today, the coverage of this unprecedented outrage against each of these worthies and us all appeared on the front pages of America's so-called newspapers of record as a blank or a yawn.

While Rudy Giuliani's "defiant" booking made the lower righthand corner of the Post front page -- the Bezos bulletin is located in Washington, after all -- the arrests rate no more than one of a dozen items in the NYT, in the center column of a headline round-up at the bottom of the page.

This is not reporting, but silencing. The idea that the arrest of the legal team of the President of the United States -- not incidentally, leading the GOP field like Secretariat -- is not headline news on the very day that the President Trump is also to be booked for the "crime" of free speech, is a total absurdity. No, this is heavy-handed news manipulation, not coverage. It's a strategy of omission. They think they can make us all disappear. It is not only a form of obvious propaganda, it is dehumanizing to us all. 

And the same goes for the GOP "hopefuls" (read: jackals) who are silent on the shows trials of President Trump. They know that we know that they know, but they have no intention of standing up for the truth or for the Constitution -- let alone for the people of this country. They have other masters, other agendas. Yuck.
