    I've yet to see a single Hostess article in the mainstream press mention the union's previous concessions or the massive pay raises the suits have given themselves, so most folks walk away thinking the unions are entirely to blame for this mess.

    Journalism really is dead.

      Tell them, please, about previous union concessions and massive pay raises the bosses gave themselves.
      Tell them whatever is true and that you notice their reporting failed to mention key points.

      The article said little about the mismanagement of the company and a lot about how the unions are to blame. Oh, there were a lot more words than that, but that's what it boiled down to.

      The comments section was even worse. The average comment section on this particular site drops my IQ by about 10 points anytime I read it. This time it dropped by at least 40 points and I had to go learn French so I could read some Sartre in order to bring it back up.
