I hate those stories. So they find a homeless person with a trust fund in order to convince readers that there are homeless people by choice. American media love exceptions story (stories that reinforce the American Dream myth: about a poor guy who came to this country with $2 and now owns 4555 buildings. Stories about poor people who work hard and stay poor are not sexy enoguh for the US media. They refute the American Dream myth after all). (Thanks for the link Jodie).
