Network News Fails To Provide Perspective

   Just watched a piece on the NBC Nightly News about teenage “flash mob” attacks in Philadelphia.  Pretty good piece, although not once did the reporter mention that unemployment among young people is running at record highs.  That it’s around 21% nationally, and even higher for African-Americans and Latinos.  Suppose that has anything to do with the “restlessness” and frustration of America’s youth?  Come on network news.  Connect the damn dots.  Please.  Do your job.
