why are there no comments here? 1. if the disappearance of indigenous women is in the thousands, why doesn't the WaPo have a reporter on the, maybe, serial killer beat on this topic? 2. if WaPo does see this as important, why a single podcast? not a nationwide manhunt led by Bezos' paper? is WaPo underfunded? I subscribe to WaPo and would love to know. "Thousands Missing by Killers Running Rampant in the Pacific Northwest"... sounds like a headline to me. Unless of course the female editor who killed this journalist's story is part of " the establishment" and is intentionally killing the story. Right? Maybe this ("liberal") newsroom doesn't actually believe this is front page news. hmmmm...
