City Activist Zuma Dogg (a.k.a. David Saltsburg) is not very happy about what's going on in the media right now.

(The government cannot create business. They can only create more government employees.)
Zuma Dogg was talking about a Federal Investigation into the mis-use of the "stimulus" money a long time ago.
