VENTSday: Trust In Media + Rich People In Congress


A recent poll shows thattrust in the mass media is at an all-time low (ouch).

And arecently published list shows that even the poorest member of Congress is more than halfway to being a millionaire.

Does either or both of these trends get you fired up, either in the positive or negative?  Let's hear from you in our VENTSday segment.

Every Wednesday, we clear the guest chair and open the phone lines and email box for listener comment on a pair of topics in the news. 

It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailingJX@jeffnet.org.

This week's key questions again:

  • Do you share in, or dispute, the low level of trust in mass media?
  • Can Congress understand the needs of average people when most of its members are wealthy?

...We'll talk to you on the air!
