Irene was the big story this week. It was bit over hyped by the MSM for some areas and under-hyped for others. It did cause several billion dollars in damages. Isn’t it funny how the mainstream media is all hands on deck for a storm that caused several billion bucks but it will hardly report the recent disclosure of $16 trillion in Fed bailouts during the financial crisis? Gaddafi has a week to surrender. Looks like the rebels are closing in, but the big story should be the al-Qaeda rebel connection. I ask again, did NATO give this terrorist group a country? USA Today has a story buried on page 4A about the al-Qaeda/rebel connection. Why isn’t that front page news? Obama is leaking news about his upcoming jobs speech next week. Will it drop unemployment? What is the real debt and commitments of the good old US of A?–$211 trillion according to Laurence Kotlikoff. Greg Hunter delivers his take on these stories on the weekly News Wrap-Up for Friday September 2, 2011.
