Our news media has no issue showing / telling us about the devastation in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Yet it’s important to understand Puerto Rico’s history of being a victim of corporate pillaging, which has contributed to the extreme disaster unpreparedness, insane levels on unemployment, and a public health crisis. Even before it was hit by this hurricane, there was a severe economic and humanitarian crisis in PR. On top of this, while the territory has representation in Congress, it does not have a vote, and thus it does not have a voice in the policies by which it is effected. Lee Camp discusses this.

Lee Camp is the host and head writer of the popular comedy news TV show Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp on RT America. The show also features correspondents John F. O’Donnell, Carlos Delgado, Naomi Karavani, and Phillip Chang. Salon.com said, "The finest TV satire thus far this election season has come from the Nightly Show and Lee Camp on Redacted Tonight." The show has also won a 2016 Telly Award for their live stand-up comedy special in New York City. George Carlin's daughter Kelly said Camp was one of only a handful keeping her father's torch lit. Camp is a former writer for The Onion and for Huffington Post Comedy. He created and starred in the viral YouTube show Moment of Clarity that was seen by millions, and he's performed stand-up comedy in a dozen countries and every state in the US. He has also been featured on Comedy Central, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, MTV, FOX & Showtime. Many know him from the viral clip of him on Fox News calling a “parade of propaganda and a festival of ignorance.”
