Dear US media, Wisconsin is right here!

 Fight like an egptian

I am trying to understand why major stations in the US such as CNN, NBC, and ABC are not covering the Wisconsin Working Class Revolution.

Last night on CNN, Piers Morgan was talking with the Sexiest Man alive from the 80s. And CNN international was joking how Ben who is currently in Libya showered only once in the last week!

So, if there is no news coming from the Middle East, we just play dumb ass media such as Charlie Sheen stupidity. They spend hours analyzing how Charlie Sheen ruined his career! How about the Career of the people in Wisconsin who are actually fighting just to survive not to make millions of dollars!

We keep bragging about our free media and now it is the right time to ask how free we are talking about. I bet if Al Jazeera is allowed in the US, it will do a better coverage.

There are so many concerns about the level of Journalism in these major stations, but being bias is a new thing!

With or without you, the Wisconsin people will win!

I agree that the people of Wisconsin will win, but must differ on a few points. This is no working class revolution, unless you mean the one which seeks to throw an oppressive state apparatus off its backs. This is not about all unions. This is about public sector unions, and decades of bad decisions which have put Wisconsin (and the rest of America) right here.
Public sector union employees are the best-paid, most-pampered set of similarly skilled joes you could find, and I find their attempts to link their pillage of the public coffers with Egyptians' no-kidding life and death struggle to throw off a real world dictator more than a little inappropriate.
Even if Gov Walker's bill passes unaltered, within a year's time, other states' unions will begin to wonder why they don;t have as much bargaining power as WI. This is being marketed as a taking, when in fact it is a relaxation of an onerous takings scheme.

I know the words " Working class Revolution" wont attract a lot of people.
I agree with you about union. My main point was the poor coverage from the major station in the US
