The Real News From the Summit of the Americas

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research and columnist for Brazil's Folha de São Paulo, on what happened at the Summit of the Americas on trade, regional power, and Latin American development. And not on the Secret Service scandal.

Great segment. Seems spot-on as Mark Weisbrot points out that U.S. press focuses on the distractions (Sex scandals) instead of the substance of our relationships with countries in Central and South America.

I would love to hear another segment about the status of the coo in Honduras.

The coverage of this summit showed poor state of US journalism.

This is the first segment I've heard in the mainstream media, to say anything about the summit other than the scandal.
