Covering economic distress: an example from the New America Media file

“When I got out of jail, it wasn’t long before I realized I was fresh meat feeling the heat waves of a struggling economy sweating through a recession.”

These are the words of a young man in San Francisco, who, on coming out of prison, is confronted with the reality of a failing economy through the struggles of his family. They are the opening words of a feature distributed by New America Media.

The words are Eric Phillips’s. The story comes with a video by Cliff Parker.
