The Denver Post dismisses news reporting and editorial comment about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive international trade agreement near the end of secretive negotiations.
By its lack of coverage, the Post is clearly negligent in its obligation to provide balanced news and opinion about significant events. Because the Post is the only daily mass market newspaper in Denver, this negligence translates to corporate control of what the public may know, or more simply, censorship.
The Denver Post breaks every newspaper's implied social contract with readers when it does not provide a full and accurate public record of significant local and world events.
The Denver Post must recognize the importance of the TPP story and begin regular news coverage. The Post is also obligated to better serve the Denver community by publishing editorial comment on the TPP.
