Thom Hartmann: Are Dorner's actions the result of racism?
If you watched Meet The Press this weekend - you heard David Gregory talk about the crumbling state of the US Postal Service. But he left out one pretty big detail about the post office's demise. Whether itís lazy journalism or an effort to give cover to the corporatists, the news media is assisting in the demise of the Post Office - an institution started by Ben Franklin thatís older than the United States itself. So that leaves it up to us - ďwe the peopleĒ - to tell the real story about whatís happening. The Digital Age isnít killing the Post Office. Instead, the demise of the Post Office is another good olí fashioned story of corporate corruption of politicians and a Republican Party that exists, first and foremost, to serve the CEO class and screw the middle class.
