Reader wonders why media isn't outraged

Editor, the Advocate:
For many years, regional newspapers have served as representatives of the citizens who are their subscribers and readers in particular areas.
This citizen questions the complacency of regional newspapers that show extremely limited concern for activities that may have adverse effects on those who make up the base of its support.
Actions or lack of action of an administration that apparently has turned a blind eye to one situation after another would appear to be a cause for published concern.
Scandals have surfaced in many areas: the loss of unprotected American lives in foreign countries, the loss of American prestige in the international community, an ineffective and corrupt Department of Veterans Affairs, Gestapo-like authority attributed to the Internal Revenue Service, selective law enforcement, porous borders, a bureaucratic nightmare erroneously named the Affordable Care Act and an American Marine held prisoner in Mexico.
My question: Where is the outrage?
