''Labor Media, or the Lack Thereof''
"Over the past year I've researched the corporate media's coverage of a number of workers' issues and found it to be miserable or nonexistent. We have now in this country historic and unprecedented labor opposition to a war, a war that has often been the top story in the media. This opposition has been expressed in the form of the passage of resolutions at conventions, other aspects of which have been covered by the media. Yet, there has not, to my knowledge, been a single corporate media story on labor's opposition to the war."-David Swanson, in his article for a Panel Presentation for the Conference of United Association of Labor Educators April 1, 2005, Philadelphia, Penn, from the Progressive Democrats of America newsletter.
