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 other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
