What’s wrong with our world

This show is one big advertisement for horrible, giant corporations. When important matters like workers, the environment and fairness come into the mix those questions are always softball pitches. I listen with disgust as executives were treated like they are such great gifts to society and not the greedy scourges on the planet and our greatest downfall. Responsible capitalism is dead and the media is all for it.
