Deep Cuts: School Program Cuts in Michigan

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Hundreds gathered at Michigan’s state capitol in Lansing, Mich., yesterday to protest budget cuts to school programs. To help explain what's going on right now in Michigan, we're joined by Craig Fahle from WDET in Detroit, where he hosts the talk show “Detroit Today.” Also with us is Casey Christensen, a first-grade teacher in Roseville, Mich. It's part of our week-long series on the impact of state budget cuts.

Ha! Glad to see that I have company in my criticism of these shills. And that's nothing, when it comes to fear-mongering and brainwashing, The Takeway is second only to FAUX News. What a waste of airspace!

Cut healthcare, cut education, cut jobs, cut public services, cut food, cut housing, cut air, cut water but increase military spending, warmongering and the hand outs to the rich. Gotta love Capitalism!

It is a shame that The Takeaway is more interested in 2 minutes of one-sided "drive by" reporting, rather than in 20 minutes of intelligent, multi-sided debate.

But then, it wouldn't be The Takeaway, would it, if it were both fair and detailed.

Here's a perfect example. Was this viewpoint, from the Detroit News' Editorial Page editor Nolan Finley, ever broached by The Takeaway? Of course not:
