Re "Republicans are shameless hypocrites on veterans" (Viewpoints, June 3): Finally, Bruce Maiman is able to get the truth out. It is Republicans who are responsible for the problems at the Veterans Affairs. They cut funding for the VA and blocked any attempt by Obama and Democrats to increase funding. The reason we've heard so little about this shameful Republican hypocrisy from our supposedly liberal media is because there is none.

For the most part, the media are controlled by gigantic corporations: the corporate media. The VA mess is another textbook example of the corporate media using an issue to keep Obama and Democrats on the defensive while shielding the true culprits- Republicans- from criticism. This way, the corporate media can install their preferred Republican Party in power and continue with the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top 5 percent. That's all the corporate media is really interested in.
