Media Blackout As Trans-Pacific Partnership Negotiated In Secret


The corporate media is very persistent on purposefully missing some very important subjects – this time the secretly negotiated Trans-Pacific partnership.

While the Obama administration boasts about the trade benefits that come with a closer partnership with the nations of the Pacific rim, others are not as eager to jump on the TPP bandwagon including American activists and some members of Congress who are concerned over the secrecy surrounding the negotiations.

For tens of millions of Americans the result we be lost jobs and wages as such a deal will just make it easier for Wall Street to ship American jobs and companies overseas where they can be performed by slave laborers at much higher profit margins.

Melinda St Louis, international campaigns director for Public citizen’s Global Trade Watch joins RT’s Kristine Frazao to discuss this.
