Media Is Downplaying White-Collar Rascals

June 07, 1992

In the Footnotes column (April 27), reference is made to Mike Tyson making 65 cents per day as a convicted rapist in prison versus his $219,780-per-second earnings in a title fight.

To be fair and a little less divisive, why not also include the prison versus heyday salaries of Michael Milken and other white-collar criminals? The Times still refers to Milken as a financial "wizard."

I am not black, but I am sensitive to the mention of Tyson when not enough is made of these crooks in banking, finance and insurance.
