Will The Corporate Media Give A Black Out On American Labor Protests Again This Sunday?

Think Progress is asking a great question today on their blog. Will the Sunday News Shows ignore labor for the second week in a row? With widespread worker protests in several states across our nation, you would think that would be of interest for any news show?

On last Sunday's news shows, there was not one labor representative on to speak to the issues that have prompted massive protests in states such as Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, and others. Fox News Sunday had Wisconsin Governor Walker on for his perspective on the worker protests in his state. However, there was no labor representative on to provide their perspective. Odd isn't for a network whose motto is 'fair and balanced'?

What do you think?
