Dying American Cities: Detroit

In the YouTube age it’s hard to hide anything. Back in the day a newspaper might decide to ignore some breaking story of crime or injustice, or bribe the owner of a string of local TV stations NOT to report certain stories. Not true anymore. Someone somewhere always has a video camera handy, and the world is always watching YouTube. Here are some “true stories” of what has happened and is happening to some great American cities, right under our noses. If you didn’t see any of this reported on your local evening news, or the Big Media outlets, stop and realize something. It’s an election year. I’m sure the White House is not thrilled to see news bloggers everywhere pointing out what they would rather have you not know, that parts of the American landscape are sinking into vast slumholes so deep they might never come back to normalcy.

We begin with Detroit.
