The rise of oligarchy and wealth and income inequality is the "great moral, economic, and political issue of our time" but gets little coverage from the mainstream media, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont says in a column published on Friday in The Guardian.

"How often do network newscasts report on the 40 million Americans living in poverty, or that we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major nation on earth? …

"How often has ABC, CBS or NBC discussed the role that the Koch brothers and other billionaires play in creating a political system which allows the rich and the powerful to significantly control elections and the legislative process in Congress?"

Sanders says Americans must "ask the hard questions that the corporate media fails to ask: who owns America, and who has the political power? Why, in the richest country in the history of the world are so many Americans living in poverty?"
