Marketplace Launches New Wealth and Poverty Desk

Well, here’s a welcome surprise. The national media is starting to realize that the oligarchical distribution of wealth to the top one percent of Americans isn’t a manufactured Occupy Wall Street narrative. American Public Media’s Marketplace announced today that it’s launching a new “Wealth and Poverty Desk” focused on “the growing concentration of wealth in the U.S.”

It will be interesting to see how far Marketplace can take its reporting before politicians start calling them commies and threaten to cut off all public radio funding.
