Remarkable uniformity amongst some major national newspapers on Tuesday as they simultaneously worried about how the supposed spending “cuts” in the debt-ceiling deal will harm the economy.
As USA Today put it the top of the “cover story” for the “Money” section: “Spending cuts could further weaken economy.”
Echoing that theme, from the Washington Post’s front page: “Deal risks undermining fragile growth”
On page 2 of the August 2 Wall Street Journal: “Deal Seen as Mild Drag on Economy”
And, from a Los Angeles Times front page plug for an interior article: “Deal offers little to boost economy”
Inside, that story carried this headline (at least online): “Debt ceiling deal casts a bleak light on the future”
Online, USA Today changed the print edition’s “Spending cuts could further weaken economy,” to : “Spending cuts could face headwinds this year: a weak economy.”
