Tribune Media

Former owner of the Chicago Tribune Sam Zell claims that the 1% work harder than the rest of us.  That must be why Tribune Media entered bankruptcy under Zell’s hard-working leadership.  Once again we have a very rich person feeling sorry for himself while putting down the people whose hard work have made him rich.  Zell claims that "Lots of people have come from nowhere and become part of the 1 percent.”  Economic mobility in America is worse than it has been in the last 100 years.  No one except the super rich and their lackeys believe in the pull yourself up by your bootstraps lie anymore.  I don’t feel sorry for same Zell.  He’s working very hard at feeling sorry for himself.
