Back in 2012, during the last U.S. presidential election, Aljazeera reported on the presidential candidate’s – then President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney – avoidance of the topic of poverty in America, and with the exception of Bernie Sanders, we saw this again during the 2016 presidential election. A 2016 report from Alternet brings to attention how during three early debates, “ISIS” and “terrorism” were mentioned 21 times, yet poverty wasn’t mentioned once. The fact is, with approximately 45 million Americans still living in poverty in the United States, it remains one of the most pressing issues in the country, and is still largely ignored by the corporate media.
