This short video I think sums up a troubling media issue that KPBS nails. It opens with an Economist being very optimistic – the local experts then have their say. They remind us who the economist works for – and then also remind us that good paying jobs may not appear until 2011.
They end the piece with I think the central issue of our time. The middle and working classes are separated from the elite. The bulk of Americans are seeing no green shoots only the elite. Maybe because jobs that pay enough for most Americans have been disappearing since the early 1980’s and the recession has made this bad situation worse?
The piece leaves then open – what to do to fix this – Great reporting!
