Election Day in Honduras

This news report includes footage of the Honduran government beating up its citizens on election day and arresting dissidents. In a sham election on Sunday, and with the approval of the United States, a "humanist" right-wing president was elected from the ranks of people who supported the coup.

The legitimate and elected president of Honduras remains a virtual prisoner in the Brazilian embassy.

I've been writing to American news media asking why they are not covering these events.

Well, Tiger Woods is more important than just about everything right now. Sad, but true.
