In an unusual event, the Washington Post has called upon the FBI to quickly explain what happened in the Todashev killing.
Strange to say none of our local papers have any interest in doing this even though the events surrounding it arise out of the Marathon Terrorist Attack (MTA), involve a triple murder in an neighborhood adjacent to Boston, had two Massachusetts state troopers as witnesses and are otherwise of great local concern. Is it simply that our local media is incapable of finding anything wrong with the way the FBI operates. That seems to be the case. We should wonder why?
The Boston media does seem to have a much too close relationship with the FBI. Where are the local papers clamoring for an answer in the Mark Rossetti case that mirrored the Whitey Bulger situation. The FBI has been investigating for two years why in 2011 it was replicating what it did with Whitey Bulger after it said back around 2000 it had discontinued doing those things. No local media says that two years investigating what happened in your own offices is an outrageous slap in the face of the public.
