This week on the Big Picture, Jim covers what the media aren’t telling you during this presidential election season. As usual, the media covers the trivial personality disputes between the candidates intensely, but there is little or no real coverage about key topics such as the Middle East, Terrorism, the Budget Deficit, the Economy, and the reasons why Americans feel we’re headed in the wrong direction. The media may want to skip over critical issues, but the Big Picture will not. Jim discusses the national debt, the danger of derivatives to the financial system, the oft-repeated claim that the rich need to pay their fair share of taxes, and rising geopolitical risk in many areas of the world. Jim also covers the gradual collapse of Obamacare and its implications, among other topics.
