The stock markets were volatile in October, including an all-time Dow Jones Industrial Average high and some “major” falls. Unfortunately, the broadcast networks preferred to show the bad side of the economy.
The network evening news shows focused on the “major selloff” and “meltdown” on Oct. 10 and 11 and ignored a record high on Oct. 3, as well as a 500-plus point gain on Oct. 16.
Game of Thrones fans know “winter is coming.” What they didn’t know was the most popular show on HBO is also a “parallel” to governments now facing the threat of climate change, according to a New York Times Style Magazine interview with its creator.
Although Hollywood’s political donors’ demographics and strategies are shifting, their direction — left — certainly isn’t. The Hollywood Reporter published an in-depth look at how liberal Hollywood’s “GOP loathing” has them more involved than ever this year, even as the makeup of Tinseltown’s political givers shifts from a cadre of liberal, old, white men, to a younger and more racial diverse crowd of liberals. One source told THR this year’s Hollywood spending will “blow away” previous midterms.
The same magazine that warned last year the “Uninhabitable Earth” was coming due to global warming, is now making even more over-the-top claims about that threat.
New York Magazine climate columnist David Wallace-Wells not only interpreted the latest U.N. climate warnings as “permission to freak out,” he made plenty of predictions that could urge others to panic, too.
The liberal media’s latest warnings about the threat of manmade global warming have a familiar doomsday ring to them.
This week, the U.N. warned there are only 10-12 years to stop “irreversible” and catastrophic global warming. However, more than 10 years ago the U.N., the media and climate prophet Al Gore were saying almost the same thing — that there was only a decade to take action.
Stopping coal use is a priority of climate alarmists and the environmental left, and a common talking point when the liberal media issue dramatic warnings. Sometimes, those talking points aren’t even vaguely true. Just ask The New York Times.
Unemployment dipped to the lowest rate since December 1969 in September, but ABC, CBS and NBC evening news shows only spent exactly one minute combined sharing the strong economic news.
New York Democratic congressional candidate and “self-avowed” socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a liberal media darling with her $40 trillion wish list of government programs. Vanity Fair proved it again with its November issue.
That issue included the latest installment of its “New Establishment” list. Ocasio-Cortez made the list along with “Democratic hopefuls” Ayanna Pressley, Andrew Gillum and Beto O’Rourke as “The Ground-Breakers.”
The absence of “climate change” or “global warming,” from the new United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) frustrated environmentalist groups, according to Huffington Post and EcoWatch. They also complained it included “corporate giveaways” to the gas and oil industry. The replacement deal for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was announced on Oct. 1, after months of negotiations between the U.S., Canada and Mexico. President Donald Trump promised a renegotiation of NAFTA during his presidential campaign.
Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell expressed optimism about the “extraordinary times” for the U.S. economy right now at an event with business economists on Oct. 2.
Powell said, “The economy is strong, unemployment is near 50-year lows, and inflation is roughly at our 2 percent objective, and the baseline outlook of many forecasters in and outside the Fed is for more of the same.”
Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos is now the world’s wealthiest man, and the liberal media love denouncing him for it.
They’ve also started telling him what to do with his money and power now that he’s begun giving some of it away. Bezos is estimated to be worth $162 billion, and he and his wife announced on Sept. 13, they would give $2 billion to address homelessness and preschool education.
