A discussion of race, politics, media and the like… What I see is what you get.

The Media Has Abandoned Covering The Nation’s Massive Unemployment Crisis


This article mirrors my own opinion… The unemployed have become a pawn in the game of politics. The people have got to take their power back…

“…the focus on the deficit is, in part, a measure of “how effective conservatives have been at changing the narrative of economic policy from one dominated by talk of fiscal stimulus to one now in lockstep with notions of fiscal austerity.” Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum concurs that this is “neither surprising nor, in a sense unwarranted.” However, he says, “What is unwarranted…is the yellow line in the chart, the one that shows mentions of unemployment: it’s down to about 50, which means about two mentions per week in each newspaper.” – Jason Linkins
