In a nation of some 330 million Americans, a relatively small group of people control the vast majority of the news, media, internet, and infotainment that shapes public opinions.
We’ll sandwich Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway’s BH Media Group in between these various infographics.
If you wonder why manufactured housing is not clearly understood, one must begin with facts like the above. But let’s be clear, this issue goes beyond our industry.
One must also ask, why would Buffett – one of the world’s richest men – not use that wealth, newspapers that Berkshire Hathaway owns, and media power to clear up the misunderstandings about our industry?
Day by day, when events are viewed based on evidence developed here and on MHLivingNews, through direct and indirect measures, it becomes more apparent that manufactured housing is struggling due to a lack of enforcement of good, existing federal laws. Antitrust laws, the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act, and DTS – the Duty to Serve – manufactured housing, rural and underserved markets could slip through our industry’s fingers if action isn’t taken.
See the related reports below for more on the issues of media and understanding, and what can be done about it.
