How About Some 'Truth in Labeling?' | Philip A. Farruggio [View all]

You know, having been homebound for nine days with the flu can really drive you crazy. Especially when you pass some of the time by "channel surfing" the mainstream boob tube.

You go from the far right wing Fox channels to the Democratic Party loving MSNBC, to the "We love em both" CNN. Bottom line: all the mainstream mediaís outlets serve the Military Industrial Complex that even cold warrior President Eisenhower warned us of.

Here is what really irks the **** out of me. Everyone who is either being interviewed or doing the interviewing or analysis is a lot wealthier than the 99% of us working stiffs out there. So, to better set the record straight, let us have complete and utter "truth in labeling" for these folks.

What I want is whenever anyone is on the boob tube, right under their face a label should appear stating how much they earned last year and under that, what is their net worth. So, whenever a politician appears on the media telling us how he or she is fighting for us, letís see how much they earned last year and what they are worth. Ditto for these media darlings, who call themselves journalist or Republican or Democratic Strategist. Let the public know just how much these clowns are earning.
