today's letter of complaint to NBC NEws

1 post / 0 new

Dear NBCnews:

Almost every week, there is a story about a ferry in indonesia overturning or boat full of Somali refugees sinking, hundreds dead. It gets 10 seconds of air time. 21 RICH people die on a luxury liner, it gets 10 MINUTES. A network with a real ethical mission statement would consider the deaths of poor people as big a tragedy as the death of poor people. thank you for reading?!

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
