Tony, my friend from Thailand sends this:
The mainstream media lies to you. This isn’t a new or groundbreaking idea for most of our readers. With that said, the truth of this statement is most obvious when it comes to issues surrounding organized labor.
Most major news outlets choose to ignore the plight of working people in the United States. Many actually help to subvert the attempts of working people to assert their power. The Sunday talk shows actually attempted to prevent the inclusion of union voices on the air during discussions of the ongoing labor protests across the country in February.
On top of all of this, mainstream media outlets are paid to feature attack advertisements packed full of spurious claims against labor unions, as CNN did recently when it featured this ad.
Obama's statements about his supporters were inserted as though he was telling that Union workers supported him and worked for him. It is a big lie and hope we can stop this.
