How others view us

Al Jazeera English, a worldwide news satellite network aimed at the West, has broadcast a story about Buffalo, part of its ongoing "Frontline USA" series. Our rank as the nation's second-poorest city brought al Jazeera here.

It's a pretty interesting piece. I found things things of particular note:

— Al Jazeera interviewed a number of people in the trenches, such as Aaron Bartley of PUSH and Alison Duwe of the Coalition of Economic Justice.

— Mayor Byron Brown is still spouting his discredited claims that the city is in the midst of an unprecedented $4.5 billion building boom.

The clip is 15 minutes. Watch and weigh in.
