They were really doing bad things before 9/11. I don't know if they have stopped or their latest things are being covered!
The same thing maybe happening re the coverage of their terrorist activities out here on the west coast. Often the coverage by our left wing mediots on an Alf or Elf activity was more PR for the terrorists rather than good reporting!
Maybe their mediot friends know better than to post an article about the Alfs/Elfs which is really a pr push for them as Brave Activists against evil corporate America!
