Roughly 40 million people live in poverty in the USA. Can you imagine living under $24,000 a year for a family of four? If you can’t, why not? Surely the media should help. This week, why mainstream media are so poor at covering poverty – and what one project, the Economic Hardship Reporting Project, is doing about it. Music feature: "Be Love" by the Alexis P. Suter Band, courtesy of HipBone Records.
Guests featured from the Economic Harship Reporting Project include David Wallis, Managing Director; Yoruba Richen, Board Member and filmmaker; and Joseph Rodriguez, Contributing Editor and photojournalist.
