You are not going to tell me that you care just as much about Macedoniaís elections as ours.

Are you saying that the US does not have a history of meddling in other countries elections, with either a Republican or Democrat as President? LOL I am sure that there are many examples of this occurring. :)

Yep. Old history going back decades, if not more.

But now, considering the 2016 elections, it's different because shut up.

No, Iím answering the lede:

Why such silence from the media that obsesses over alleged Russian interference in our elections?

Because most Americans canít point to Macedonia on a map. Itís a stupid question. And a stupid article.

Actually, it's a very good question, especially when viewed through an international lens.

No it's not. We care more about our own country than any other. So does everybody else. And the media covers what people are going to read and watch.

If everything in the world just boils down to "my side's good and the other side isn't, here's proof," there's no point in discussing anything. It's tiresome and lazy.

This is why you need the print edition.

Part of the MEDIA's responsibility is to put a map of Macedonia on your kitchen table if there is a reason to point to Macedonia.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy
