I don't think Moore was addressing poverty as an issue in this piece; he was addressing "middle" America that is fed by the media every night a large heaping bucket full of gory stories on the ten o'clock news.
I am living by American standards at poverty level and have lived in my truck in West Virginia, California, and Alaska and let me tell you Alaska was a whole lot less scary with all of its Guns, and Bears, and Men (The men aren't really scary at all just hairy, and I am not complaining)… because, I believe there is a lot more N.P.R. and not so much television.
