The top news story yesterday (not)

My friend Spike asks why this wasn't the top news story yesterday:
WASHINGTON - Numerous federal and local law enforcement agencies have bypassed subpoenas and warrants designed to protect civil liberties and gathered Americans' personal telephone records from private-sector data brokers.

These brokers, many of whom advertise aggressively on the Internet, have gotten into customer accounts online, tricked phone companies into revealing information and even acknowledged that their practices violate laws, according to documents gathered by congressional investigators and provided to The Associated Press.

"Because the news sucks," is my guess. This isn't as important as a discussion of just how gay is superman, anyway.
