"The People's Pension: The Struggle to Defend Social Security Since Reagan" Eric Laursen talks about the debate over Social Security since the early 1980s and argues that in order to preserve the decades old support system it may be necessary to remove it from the control of the federal government. Hosted by Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. Eric Laursen, an independent journalist, is the co-founder and former managing editor of Plan Sponsor, a magazine that focuses on pension funds. He is the co-author of "Understanding the Crash." Eisenhower and Nixon refused to touch the third-rail of social security benefits. Bush crashed and burned in his 2005 attempt to privatize social security. Campaign for America's Future is a vital resource in the struggle to maintain social security that keeps tens of millions from poverty.to watch Eric Laursen on www.booktv.org, 57 min, click on http://www.booktv.org/Watch/13752/The+Peoples+Pension+The+Struggle+to+Defend+Social+Security+Since+Reagan.aspx

Nothing, apparently, so why mention them in your shill to privatize social security?

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
