    I see the NY Times front-pages leaked Bengazi emails from the State Department which were snagged by the international press. What I'd like to know is this:

    How does it happen that the international press somehow obtains access to secret State Department cables but the domestic U.S. press does not publish summaries of the past tax returns of a candidate for President of the United States who illegally hid his overseas income for years before asking for amnesty in 2009?

    Is it that the international press is so much better, or is it that the domestic U.S. press is in the tank of the plutocrats?
