Ho hum

I noticed this, too.

It's inconceivable to me why, thus far, Reuters and the Associated Press haven't written up an article based on the NY Times' story about the Bush-Blair 31 January 2003 discussions. Besides an airing on broadcast TV, wire stories are probably the most important avenue for getting the news out to the larger public, typically through local newspapers.

By any stretch of the imagination, a story about the US President gumming up intentions to launch a war, in stark contrast to his public statements, and floating ideas to manufacture a pretext for invasion should be big news, even in these cynical times.
