I would just like to take the opportunity to thank Scott Reeder for giving all of us his enlightened revisionist history of the Haymarket riots ("Debunking myths of Haymarket Riot," Sunday Viewpoints).|
Maybe next month Mr. Reeder and his Koch brother sponsors can give us the version of before labor laws how children really preferred working in the mines and fields to recess and how coal miners secretly preferred black lungs to clear lungs.
It is not enough for Scott to use his bully pulpit to discredit the current labor movement, but he has now decided to take aim at the past labor movement as well. You know the labor movement that protected children from sweat shops and gave workers a better life in general.
Good job, Scott, I am sure that your corporate sponsors are sending you your checks as I write.
Maybe the reason that the truth was so hard to get to back then was that there were too many reporters who were bought and paid for by the corporate elite.
