This just in

"New Yorkers Support the Transit Strike"

Naturally, none of this is reflected in media coverage of the strike. The talking heads and their ink-stained cousins prefer to present the union leader as just another angry black man, and the deification of gazzilionaire Michael Bloomberg has already begun.

Like you, I am shocked to hear that the corporate media is providing a biased view of a labor dispute. Shocked!

And about the whole illegal thingie... I understand the idea behind the Taylor law, but not the principle: Why should people be forced to work, if they don't want to? 14th Ammendment anyone?
