The Trans-Pacific Partnership stands to be one of the most powerful trade agreements America has seen. So why has the mainstream media been so silent on it? A recent media study performed by Media Matters found that of all the mainstream broadcasters only Ed Schultz has been regularly discussing this massive trade agreement.
From Media Matters:
Only The Ed Show Devoted Significant Coverage To The TPP. During the same 18-month period, CNN and Fox News each mentioned the TPP during two broadcasts. MSNBC’s The Ed Show discussed the trade agreement on 71 broadcasts, but the TPP was mentioned on the network’s other evening programming only twice (once by host Ed Schultz during coverage of the president’s State of the Union speech and a passing mention by All In host Chris Hayes).
Outside of the mainstream, Ring of Fire has been hammering on TPP from the beginning.
