No, it is not Russia Today, nor Sputnik, nor some other ‘foreign agent’ reporting this, but the U. S. own Newsweek. The mass media, mainstream news publication headlined its recent report with this: ALABAMA HAS THE WORST POVERTY IN THE DEVELOPED WORLD, U. N. OFFICIAL SAYS (You know things are pretty much going South when the UN sends in a “Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights” to look into the, that is right, poverty and human rights record of the world’s leading democracy, the Number One, the shining light on the ever-dark horizon, that marks the way for the destitute and the oppressed… ah, you know the leitmotif.
It would be a bit of a ‘right, UN, say no more’ if it weren’t for the hard cold facts mentioned in the Newsweek article, the open sewers, the 2017 hookworm outbreak, the “nearly 41 million people in the U. S. live in poverty. That’s second-highest rate of poverty among rich countries” reported by another, non-RT/non-Sputnik agency, the U. S. Government’s own Census Bureau. Were it not for the fact that the UN investigator is a U. S. law professor (well, he might be a foreign agent too, who knows).
