Where Have All The Journalist Gone?

Unless you are particularly plugged in to the labor movement, you would have no idea that the crowds in Madison, WI have steadily grown every day, surpassing 100,000 over the weekend.  So what was the pressing story on the news shows this morning?

Was James Franco under the influence at the Oscars last night?

You can't make this stuff up.  Quality reporting like this makes me wonder where all the reporters have gone?  Oh, that's right - they disappeared with the dying print media industry.  This is the biggest labor story in Wisconsin history, and the most galvanizing story for the labor movement since George Meany was still around over at the AFL-CIO, and the MSM doesn't even bat an eye. 

 Simple.  Follow the Money.

In Solidarity,
