Opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership--dubbed 'NAFTA on steroids'--is receiving unprecedented popular opposition and nearly no news coverage by major outlets

The only coverage I've heard on the raw deal of the TPP from the Media Outlets listed is on The Ed Show.

Major news outlets are owned by Mega Corps...why would they want to let others know what's going on? It would be detrimental to their interests, and profits.

Figures. They are part of Big Business that will benefit from this evil treaty. Thank goodness for the Internet, which makes spreading the word about under-reported stories very easy!

Noted. Thanks, Roseann. What this tells me is that an abundant amount of people quit watching TV news and now find their info online. To get such a pushback with so little mainstream coverage has got to have the Powers That Be quite worried....lol! I'm going to put this one in the plus column....score a point for those of us against the TPP. Let's keep up the good work of spreading the facts to others, as well as messaging our Congress members and POTUS that we object. Of course, complaints to the media for their lack of reporting are always necessary.

I believe we live in Corporate America and the corporations control everything including our politicians and the media. I believe we are only allowed to hear what the corporations want us to hear. I believe TPP will become a reality even if 99% of us were against it. I believe our unemployment rate has been so high over the past years due to prior trade agreements.

Goes to show who controls the media and why pressure to censor the internet--- the power of testimonials and proliferation of news events
