The Village Times







Alexandra Pelosi






Issued: March 2012

Statement: Alexandra Pelosi: daughter of House Speaker Nancy; Emmy-nominated filmmaker; and, now, Village Times citation winner. Alexandra earns this distinction on the strength of a couple of segments she did in March for Real Time With Bill Maher. The first focused on Obama-hating white folks from Mississippi, and the second made sport of welfare recipients in New York City. Among her questions to representatives of the latter group were, “When was the last time you actually worked?” and “Why should my tax dollars be going to you?”


Why indeed? Haven't the more affluent among us suffered enough?


By making fun of toothless hoarders in Mississippi and African-American welfare recipients in New York City, Alexandra displayed the mark of a true Village journalist: balance. We look forward to more from her in the future.
