Amy Goodman: Texas Blast a Form of Industrial Terrorism

‘Why is it that when it comes to Texas, we know so little?’

Current TV’s John Fugelsang talks with “Democracy Now!” journalist Amy Goodman about the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, that has killed at least 14 people and injured more than 200. Goodman says the media has paid more attention to the Boston bombing than the Texas tragedy.

“We are talking about a case, in a sense, of industrial terrorism. Not a bomb put at a corporation, but a corporation that so undervalued the lives of the people who work there and the community, that we’re talking about — what? — more than four times the number of people died in West, Texas,” she says.
