Local Protests Against Increased Military Presence

It’s funny how a story like this one about native Chamorros protesting US military increases on Guam get no coverage in the island’s only newspaper. Funny because the publisher of the newspaper is the president of the chamber of commerce, the same chamber of commerce agressively pushing Guam to the Pentagon. Funny when a person has to read about important issues affecting the island from media located on other islands and even different countries like Australia. Makes a person think that perhaps a certain newspaper is pushing an agenda and ignoring valid protests. I wonder.
