While it is true a lot of news that is important is never reported on by the mainstream media,
it's not really that it's being kept from us, as much as it is not something that the media
deem to be what the people want to see, for instance Paris Hilton has been smattered
across the news the last few days, yet no mention of the ISS being open to other government
agencies and to the private sector, now I personally think the ISS thing is far more important
than Paris Hilton's fake tears, but most people don't think the same way, so the news reports
what they think is of interest to the people.
Now, of course there are other times when news is reported that is not exactly going to
get everyones interests, but is none the less important and does get reported on.
As to the items you mentioned, the impeachment process has been pretty well known,
in fact I've seen it featured on CNN more than a few times, mostly when it was being
proposed and such.
As for Cheney and the D.C. Madam, I've not heard about a link between them,
but she and her privacy breaking (IMO she should be fined and if she releases any/more
client info put in jail for breaking privacy laws) idiocentrism have been in the news as well.
As for questioning and criticizing our leaders, well I'd say we do that quite a lot really,
not just on a normal person by person basis, but many people who have varying levels of
influence do it as well.
