Dereliction of Duty?

Why is it Pakistani journalists asked Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, whether the U.S. is trying to get control of Pakistan's nuclear weapons, and American journalists didn't.

Instead, U.S. journalists reported on Pakistani journalists questioning Gates.

The obvious is often the most elusive, often deliberately. Just as the absence of responsible reporting will someday be given as a strong part of the buildup in Iraq, the same applies to what's now going on in Pakistan.

When are the news media planning to come back from lunch?
