Highlight from “CNN and Fox News Are Finally Covering the TPP After Ignoring It for Two Years”

Up until recently, cable news outlets almost completely ignored the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — the 12-nation government agreement that would dramatically expand corporate and investor rights at the expense of medical affordability, the environment, and labor rights.

The impact of this news blackout was devastating on Americans’ ability to understand what the agreement entailed. A June 2015 New York Times poll found that 78 percent of Americans said they had heard or read “not much” or “nothing at all” about the TPP.

But now that the TPP has become a major factor in the presidential campaign, that silence is finally ending.
