Stupidly Surprised

I've long known to be wary of trusting any media sources and that omission is usually their biggest sin. Yet, I would have thought that when a A US congressman (Dennis Kucinich) called for the impeachment of the president from the house floor, it would make a sound. (Stupid me)

This happened several days ago (the AP story is here) so one would think it would get some mention, even in passing, right?

The Globe and Mail didn't have anything, neither did the Toronto Star. CBC has the 'story' on a page of headlines on CBC radio3.
BBC supposedly has a link, but it doesn't actually go to information about the impeachment.
CNN is overwhelmed with Russert dying, but at least had a story.
The Guardian picked up the AP and added the vote.
And, of course, Al Jazeera had two stories on it.
Heck, Jon Stewart didn't even cover this.

To find out an elected official listed numerous reasons for the impeachment of the most powerful person on the planet, I had to go to a Canadian musician's blog. Further, after some searching, I had to find the AP story on CNN or The Guardian. Still further, to get actual news coverage, I had to go to Al Jazeera.
This occurrence gets both a 'sigh' and a 'so it goes.'

So why do you think this wasn't covered by most media sources? Seems to be an interesting enough story.
