A whole entire newstory on honor killing in Pakistan, and...

...not one mention of the "I" word. They did work in a mention of the "C" word, though:

Many stood up in protest, saying the executions were "barbaric" and demanding that discussions continue Monday. But a handful said it was an internal matter of the deeply conservative province.

Being further evidence that "conservative" is just the newsmedia's way of saying "Bad dog!"

More fun with google

Chance is the hazel wand that opens the magic cave of serendipity. Go to google, or to google's news archive, and type in "newly discovered". You can narrow it by adding something: "newly discovered photos", "newly discovered tapes", "newly discovered trove", etc. And happy surfing!
