Burying the Story

You've heard of the term 'burying the lede,' which describes a technique used by the Complicit Press to put the real news in the 56th paragraph of a narrative.

Here, they don't even bother with a 'lede.' 

Milwaukee County Transit System electric buses have been pulled from the streets after the buses' batteries are part of a manufacturer recall.

"Due to a manufacturer's recall, and out of an abundance of caution, the Milwaukee County Transit System will remove all Nova Bus LFSe+ battery electric buses from the CONNECT 1 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line temporarily, starting today," MCTS said in a statement Thursday....

And blah, blah, blah.

Recall.  Free replacement.  Abundance of caution.

What does this "reporter" not report?

The reason that the batteries are recalled.

Could it be that the batteries have a potential 'inextinguishable fire' problem?

You'll never know.
