Our Glorious Comrades at Reuters

...have announced that the rightful president of Honduras has returned after being ousted by the military junta there. At least that what you get from this:

"Soldiers toppled Zelaya and sent him into exile after he upset conservative opponents, who accused him of wanting to change the constitution to allow presidents to seek re-election."

The omissions here are deafening, especially given how long this has been in the news and how Zelaya's attempts to set up a Chavez-style dictatorship have been so thoroughly documented. It's as if Reuters feels the US populace is stupid or forgetful enough that it can engage in an Orwellian rewrites of history anytime it likes.

Plus ca change...
