What are you going to do about it?

So Washington Post says in an op-ed yesterday:

"And so we will put in place programs to protect the American people that honor the civil liberties of our people, and programs that we constantly brief to Congress," Mr. Bush assured the country yesterday, as he brushed off requests for a more detailed account. But this is exactly the point of contention. The administration, it appears from Mr. Comey's testimony, was willing to go forward, against legal advice, with a program that the Justice Department had concluded did not "honor the civil liberties of our people." Nor is it clear that Congress was adequately informed. The president would like to make this unpleasant controversy disappear behind the national security curtain. That cannot be allowed to happen.

(emphasis mine)

Yup. Many citizens have been angry about the NSA warrantless wiretapping controversy, in addition to a growing cascade of other equally disturbing and unacceptable controversies. We've been blogging, writing letters to the editors of many papers across the country, screaming our protests, and yet we've been unable to permeate the consciousness of a critical mass of the public to sit up and take notice -- simply because they do not hear much at all from the corporate-owned media in this country about this and other controversies.

The question to the Washington Post's editorial staff, management and ownership is this: What are YOU going to do about it?
