Trends in the news

Unsustainability is unreported

Why is it the media often miss what most needs reporting?

There was little effort to find what was behind the claim that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Now, what is happening in Egypt may reflect what is happening around the world, and could happen here in the U.S. [“Islamists seized in Egyptian sweep,” page one, July 5.]

Egypt’s population has grown well beyond the means of the state to support its needs, and even a strong state will struggle to ensure sufficient supplies of basic staples, particularly fuel and wheat.

Why isn’t this trend toward unsustainability reported in the media?
