New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) has been vastly criticized for his poor handling of the coronavirus, and one Fox Business anchor has had enough of him. “You wouldn’t know energy if you ran it over with your chauffeured SUV as you napped in the back seat, having awoken at noon.”
New York Times economist Paul Krugman continues to unleash liberal bile just to take disgusting shots at President Donald Trump, Republicans, and ordinary Americans for wanting to reopen the economy. Krugman penned an absurd May 14 op-ed headlined, “Covid-19 Reality Has a Liberal Bias.” In that article, Krugman encouraged readers to speculate about the potential “blowback — especially, by the way, among senior citizens — if an attempt to restart the economy leads to a new wave of infections.”
Saturday’s New York Times cheered on the no-limits left-wing spending wishlist of congressional Democrats in “G.O.P.’s Slow Approach To Aid Risks Blowback” by congressional reporter Carl Hulse. It is Hulse’s favorite type of story, one he rewrites constantly: Democrats in Congress pressuring Republicans to cave in on one thing or another -- immigration, spending, taxes, etc: "But their resistance -- born of spending fatigue and policy divisions -- is proving increasingly unsustainable...."
Economist and member of the Save Our Country Task Force Stephen Moore came out swinging against neglecting the economy further amidst the ongoing pandemic. After noting that over 200,000 people worldwide, and over 70,000 Americans, have died from the coronavirus, Moore began his exclusive video for MRCTV by asking a question.
One of the premier national unions for liberal outlets such as NBC News Digital, The Washington Post and The New York Times actually voted to request the government finance the news industry with taxpayer dollars. Surprisingly, it was The Times that released the story Sunday May 3. The article noted how the president of the “most prominent journalists’ union in the country, the NewsGuild, crossed a line that once seemed unimaginable: He asked the government for money.” Then came the kicker: “The guild’s leaders voted to request “‘public financing for journalism.’”
Liberal billionaire Warren Buffett apparently doesn’t believe that the coronavirus will cripple the might of the U.S. economy in the long-run. A prominent liberal business figure like Buffett voicing such sentiments provides ammunition to President Donald Trump, who also predicted that the economy is “going to make a very strong comeback.” Buffett stated during a virtual shareholder meeting that “‘Nothing can basically stop America,’” according to CNBC. “‘The American miracle, the American magic has always prevailed and it will do so again.’” The implication here (intentional or not) is that the current economy is robust enough to beat back the fallout caused by states shutting down their economies indefinitely.
When CNBC reports the markets are showing signs of fighting back against the coronavirus fallout, you’d think that’d be newsworthy for sister network NBC’s evening news broadcast. Apparently not. CNBC had reported stunning results after the markets closed yesterday. The outlet noted that the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 “posted their best month since the 1980s.” CNBC continued: “Optimism has been driven by hopes that economies will gradually begin to reopen, as well as by positive results from a Gilead Sciences drug trial for a coronavirus treatment.” Thursday’s edition of NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt skipped that whole story.
The farcical New York Times dealt with the question of re-opening our coronavirus-devastated economy by stoking progressive alarmism about racial and economic “inequality.” The Times published a preposterous story headlined with a false equivalency, “Job or Health? Restarting the Economy Threatens to Worsen Economic Inequality.” Author Jim Tankersley grumbled in the sub-headline that “The coronavirus recession has exacerbated the racial and income divides in America.” Tankersley continued: “Lifting restrictions too soon will make them worse and leave workers with a bleak choice.” That logic taken out of the dustbin of progressive economics was plastered on the front page of The Times April 28, print edition.
Liberal New York Times economist Paul Krugman needed to dip into the graveyard of famous newspaper headlines to spit childish hyperbole at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Krugman went #PeakWoke at McConnell’s suggestion that states should file for bankruptcy. Ironic that the guy who wrote the Keynesian book “Arguing with Zombies: Economic, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future,” would attempt to revive a zombie headline from roughly 45 years ago to continue proving his lefty bias.
On Sunday's Velshi show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi joined left-wing activist Reverend William Barber in complaining that taxes on the wealthy aren't higher, and dismissed the benefits to society contributed by the wealthy. He also invoked Marie Antoinette against the Trump administration over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
It looks like one big-name businessman isn’t allowing the coronavirus to dim his hopes on America’s economic strength. The Hillary Clinton supporter, billionaire Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stated in an economic-based interview on a Fox News podcast (Fox News Rundown ) that “We've had a taste of socialism right now ... giving money and redistributing wealth ... that's okay.” But Cuban didn’t put his stock in socialism:
This week, President Donald Trump began openly considering at what point the American government ought to take steps to reopen the American economy. He explained: "Our country wasn't built to be shut down. America will again and soon be open for business," suggesting that the timeline will be weeks instead of months.
