Steven Kangas, 37, of Las Vegas, NV, a well-known Internet champion of liberal causes, died last Feb. 8, reportedly from a gunshot wound to the head, in a men's room just outside the Pittsburgh, PA, office of right-wing billionaire and Clinton-hater Richard Mellon Scaife, but to the major media Kangas' death has been a non-story.

Was Kangas' death a suicide, as Pittsburgh authorities claim?  Why have the police not questioned Scaife, since his newspaper, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, depicted Kangas as an obsessed lunatic who had come to that city with the intent of assassinating Scaife, but allegedly turned the gun on himself instead? And if Kangas was of no concern to Scaife, why did the reclusive billionaire dispatch his No. 1 private detective, Rex Armistead, to dig into Kangas' past.

Moreover, isn't strange that those who still insist presidential adviser Vince Foster was murdered, a theory promoted by Scaife, have no interest in how or why Kangas died?

The major media may be afraid of Scaife, who is known for going after his critics, but veteran journalist Mike Snow is continuing his quest for the answers to all these questions.
