The open talk of U.S. meddling in other countries around the world was so commonplace that the U.S. mass media spent no time covering the hearing, even though the speakers did encounter some pushback. Not all members of Congress are on board with the programs.
The "open talk of US meddling in other countries" and the fact that it is absent in corporate media is not because it is so commonplace.
