Tip-Toeing Around the Elephant

 

The statistics cited in the following article are significantly more staggering. The reason I’m about to narrate this article is to highlight the unwillingness of many journalists even those that consider themselves independent, to report the obvious. They tip-toe around the gigantic elephant in the center of the living-room with grace and skill on par with Russia’s most celebrated prima-ballerinas. Coming in at a close second to their journalistic pas de deux with the aforementioned elephant, is their failure to define. Whether intentional or not, failing to correctly define the problem and most importantly the guilty parties is … part of the problem.
