The BBC examines the decaying economic conditions in the United States and the effect it has had on American citizens.
The US media is not reporting on issues like this, rather they focus on things like dead rock stars or who won the American Idol competition. In their view, « if it doesn’t get reported, it doesn’t exist. »
Politicians point fingers at each other as the cause of the faltering and dying economy and even blame the millions of homeless, unemployed, and hungry as the culprits, while hack groups like the Heritage Foundation don’t see any problems at all. To them poverty is a myth.
