Neglected by US media?

Roy Greenslade says US journalists ignore Sunday Times scoop on FBI nuclear scandal, pointing to this investigative report in the Times: FBI denies file exposing nuclear secrets theft. From the Times report:
THE FBI has been accused of covering up a key case file detailing evidence against corrupt government officials and their dealings with a network stealing nuclear secrets.
The assertion follows allegations made in The Sunday Times two weeks ago by Sibel Edmonds, an FBI whistleblower, who worked on the agency’s investigation of the network.

Well, there is some notice in the blogs, and in Editor & Publisher, where a staff report links to Daniel Ellsberg's column on the story at Brad Blog.

But, most media are more concerned over whether the AP should be writing Britney Spears' obit.......

Or, as Ellsberg says in his column:'s a measure of how far the New York Times and Washington Post have fallen from their responsibilities to the public, to their profession and to American democracy, since I gave them the Pentagon Papers in 1971. They printed them then. Would they today?
