1. You're right. Even though our corporate media DID carry the story of Peruvian kids
getting laptops, we can ALL bet we will NEVER hear one peep about this huge outlay which will provide 350,000 laptops to kids who would never otherwise ever get one.

Interesting how selective our media became, finally. Nothing in it to resemble a service to the people.

You may remember corporate media shut down their foreign news bureaus during Reagan's time, brought them all home. It seemed crazy at the time, but now it seems to fit the pattern of bringing ALL the corporate media information together to be tightly screened, organized and published under very tight controls.

Thanks for this very cool news. Those laptops are going to make a helluva difference in the lives of those kids.
