Gov neglected to tell publicof planned Bilderberg huddle
The New York Times is cooperating in the blackout of protests at the Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Virginia, and the use of police to bar photographs in a public area.
According to a check of the Times' search engine, the last story on the Bilderbergers was a feature about "conspiracy theorists" that appeared in 2004.
One attendee at the shadowy conference of power elite, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, neglected to alert the press or public about his itinerary, according to a media report.

The Bilderberg conferences were organized in the 1950s, during the Cold War, with the Rockefeller family as a major sponsor.
The group's stated aim is to permit political and business leaders to discuss matters of international import without worry about media scrutiny. Influential journalists have been Bilderberg attendees, but they could attend only by agreeing to a pledge of journalistic silence.
The power of the Bilderberg controllers is evidenced by the fact that so much of American media bows to the Bildeberger desire to avoid press coverage.
The conferences are governed by a steering committee which designates a chairman; members are elected for a term of four years and can be re-elected. An executive secretary reports to the chairman. Expenses of maintaining the "secretariat" of the Bilderberg meetings are covered by private subscription, the secretariat says.
The Rockefellers put their weight behind the Bildeberg parleys after severe embarrassments concerning communist penetration and even control of two of their foreign policy think tanks.
They bankrolled the Institute of Pacific Relations, which drew fire as a hotbed of communist espionage and subversion and which was quietly shut down about a decade after the scandals broke. Investigations revealed that the communist underground had gained control of IPR's nominating committee by the late 1940s.
The Rockefellers were also stung badly when Alger Hiss, the president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (sometimes known as the Carnegie Endowment for World Peace), was accused of having been a high-level Soviet mole in the State Department. Hiss's accuser, Whittaker Chambers, was denounced as a fraud by a leftwing contingent, but U.S. intelligence had a strong pattern of circumstantial evidence against Hiss, which could not be used against him at the time.
It has been reported that during the Cold War, people from communist countries were invited to the Bilderberg talks, though their names did not appear on the lists of attendees issued by the secretariat.
