The New White Supremacy in the Corporate Media

Lloyd Hart | With NBC publishing their full-page color ad in The New York Times today illustrating who and how MSNBC will be covering what the ad titled as the "Battle for the White House" NBC has illustrated their commitment to news by whites and therefore, for whites. It wouldn't be so bad if the ad and NBC's news reporting practice illustrated a reasonable balance of coverage but it most certainly does not and for that matter nor does any other corporate network broadcasting America today. more...  5 Comments

Another Bloomberg/Port Authority Attack on Working People

Poor New Yorker | (from the Open Newswire): To get to the JFK Airport on many occasions, I have taken the A train to Howard Beach and then caught the free shuttle to the terminal. The other day I went to pick up a friend from the airport and I was confronted with yet another unmentioned assault by the City on working people.

Before heading to the airport, I hopped on the MTA website to make sure the A was running normally when I noticed a link titled JFK AirTrain. I learned that this new service was linking the A train to JFK for 5 bucks, a little more research on the Port Authority web site revealed that the JFK AirTrain was built because business executives were complaining about transportation to the airport (as if they take public transit anyhow). I figured this was no big deal if some folks wanted to pay 5 bucks for this new service as long as the old free one was still available. But conspicuously absent from the website was any mention of the free shuttle although the info was definitely there in November when I went to the FTAA protests in Miami.
