A Machinist News Network?

Who knew?  Well, apparently almost no one, judging from the number of viewers.  But we'll hope that changes with time. 

The IAM, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, has created what they call the Machinist News Network - Labor News For Working Families.  They have made a couple dozen YouTube clips talking about issues of importance to Organized Labor.  I stumbled across it while looking for something else and my curiosity led me to investigate more.  It is a pretty amazing set of video clips.  Information on the growing threat to labor from China, a clip of John Edwards speaking at the IAM Hall in Seattle in April, even a report on the YearlyKos convention

Check it out - here or here.  The clips are reasonably well done and very interesting.  It is hopeful that this exists at all - a way to communicate with the American people, another way to integrate the various segments of people-powered politics and step around the traditional media.

Next step is to let people know about it.
