Re-distributing Broadcast Minutes

How many people think that there are loads more stories worth at least 5 minutes of the ubiquitous Aruba coverage??

For example: Zimbabwe. I had heard rumblings about extreme bad guy Mugabe, but I had no idea what was really going on until I read this artice in the June 27th Weekly Standard.
For those who remain in Zimbabwe, a Cambodian experiment awaits. Thousands of people made homeless in the government's clean-up campaign are being herded into reeducation camps and told they can have a housing plot if they swear allegiance to the party of President Robert Mugabe. Those who refuse are loaded onto trucks and dumped in remote rural areas where food is scarce. Human rights workers say they are deliberately being left to die in an effort by the Mugabe regime to exterminate opponents.

I think stories like this deserve more news coverage and much prayer.
