The Dark Side of Capitalism

Yesterday, Pope Benedict convicted those in charge of the media, saying:

I appeal again to the leaders of the media industry to advise producers to safeguard the common good, to uphold the truth, to protect individual human dignity and promote respect for the needs of the family.

What I find interesting is to whom he is speaking. The leaders of the Mainstream Media go after Halliburton, Enron, Exxon, etcetera, however, they are just as guilty (perhaps more so as they are so quick to, and viciously, attack others) of pure corporate greed, as they don’t care what is sent out, by whom it is consumed, and the effect upon society.

Almost, that makes me think that we need the government and the FCC. Almost.
