If that report about the Apple factory in China wasn't a whitewash,it was definitely watered down.What ever happened to investigative journalism and hidden cameras,pixelated faces and disguised voices?
WHERE'S THE JOURNALISTIC BEEF!
I think it's been literaly made illegal to record anyone without their permission,and the conflict of interests between journalists and their employers and sponsors also make old fashioned muckraking almost impossible,unless someone wants to lose their career.
ABC News is a part of a giant conglomerate that makes hard hitting journalism a thing of the past.And I think that was the idea,not just making money.The big shots want all news and information to go through their filter and legal department.They can put a muzzle on a story just by using tyrannical copyright laws...One can claim "fair use",but in the meantime youtube administrators have taken down your expose' about whatever,whomever. It's legalism run amuck.
Anyway what I wanted to see was more about the Chinese difference between gross pay and net pay.The sickeningly polite robo-journalist? only mentioned something about $2 dollars per hour MINUS fees for food and lodging?.SAY WHAT,ethically food and lodging should be included since the damn Apple factory requires their slave laborers to actually live in the workplace 24/7.
Let's see now,$2/hr x 60hr work week!!! = $120 MINUS $17 per day for food minus the daily fee for sleeping in Apple's roach motel,comes to about $40 dollars net pay for a 60 hour work week!
All the job exporting Apple executives should be deported to China...Seriously,why should these Apple executive parasites enjoy the many benefits and perks for being rich in America while exploiting Chinese slave labor practices???There should be a French style revolution in America complete with guillotines for the traitorous elites!
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!
May Steve Jobs rot in hell.He sold his soul to the devil,hell is where he belongs.
And that goes for every single other traitor and blood sucking parasite who makes their products in China and only sells them here,leaving out the middle class with most of the money going to ITs at the top and to the Chinese government buying up our debt...These predatory corpies have betrayed and destroyed America.And they should all die for it.
Forget investigative journalists,how about hard hitting editorials and commentators! who would chastise the powers that be on a daily basis exposing these its for what they are.
