Why there's a media blackout on the TPP
Recall this prior post on the media blackout on the TPP. This story explains why it is so. It seems that the very media outlets that won't cover this story are the same ones that have Washington lobbyists promoting the deal to reap its benefits. These media companies include Comcast, Time-Warner, Fox and Disney. The story does though note the MSNBC is picking up coverage of the story, the only one. See this story from, no surprise, Ed Schultz.
