2019年你错过的最重要的事

西雅图—根据最新统计,《华盛顿邮报》、《纽约时报》和《华尔街日报》每天加起来要发布1000条报道。尽管报告并未说明有多少人会阅读所有这些报道,但想必没人能做到。

我们每个人每年都可能错过了成千上万条重要新闻。但2019年人们错过的最大新闻发生在10月10日法国里昂的一间会议厅中,政府官员、企业领袖和慈善家承诺为一家叫做全球基金(Global Fund)的组织出资140亿美元。

很多人要等到听说其全名后,才知道全球基金是什么:全球对抗艾滋病、结核病和疟疾基金。基金成立于千禧年伊始,当时,有数十万儿童因为可预防疾病而垂死挣扎。艾滋病危机正出于高峰,新闻机构将艾滋病毒描述为 收割撒哈拉以南非洲的“邪恶镰刀”。有人预测,其无法阻止的传播将导致整个国家的崩溃。这是一场国际危机,需要国际应对。

    Jeffrey D. Sachs

    America's plutocrats and their media allies are certain that US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is unelectable, or that, if somehow elected, he would bring about the collapse of the republic. This disdain is both telling and absurd.
