I think the general public would be interested to know that they are seemingly being outright lied to by MNCR and the media.So get on your soapbox and tell them. See how many stop to listen.
Really, with all the lying and covering up the press has done about things that actually matter (like Iraq, to name just one), do you really think that letting this cat out of the bag (which is a mis-statement, actually - nobody's trying to keep it under wraps) is going to push the nation over the edge and demand change for once?
This is insignificant. Take all that energy and indignation and direct it towards something that will help humanity - or at least yourself - in a concrete way.
I don't understand why you think this is no big deal. It doesn't bother you that the spokesman is just blatantly lying as he sees fit?
