The next time you hear about another round of layoffs at a TV news division, the closing of a bureau, the decision not to cover a foreign story with full force, remember this week of silliness in April.
Remember those who have the least amongst us, struggling after more than a year of unemployment, a long commute they can no longer afford, or the diagnosis of a medical condition that could kill them and bankrupt their family.
As a journalist, you like to be the one asking the questions. But it's time that some of our news executives gave some answers of their own.
The unemployed need to start contactig the media too. It about time some light be shed on the jobs crisis. Its way beyond just a problem now.

Dan Rather mentioned that this is one of the stories the main stream media is failing to cover.
People have to become involved and start contacting the media. I look at the story about CT losing jobs to RI and I want to scream. This is the typical media spin. It isn't true, but unless you are in the situation I am in, you will believe it is true.
A good number of unemployed individuals and 99er's are disheartened. And they should be. We have been ignored so long by our Representatives that WE elected, why should they think that the media is going to help.
You are right. We have to start contacting the media with our story. However, if you urge people to do this, they say we are "pressuring them". Just can't win!
