Friday night, Last Man Standing aired a new episode titled “Arrest Her Development.” The episode focused, in part, on Mike’s (Tim Allen) liberal son in law, Ryan (Jordan Masterson); however, tonight he wasn’t so liberal. To Mike’s surprise, Ryan was going about his marijuana business in a capitalist way.
Economist Ben Stein provided a harsh reality check of socialism, as youth, politicians and the media turn ever leftward. His criticism of socialism and the Green New Deal sharply contrasted with recent liberal media reactions.
The stock market has been on the rebound in 2019, after what some called an “irrational sell-off” in late 2018. The network evening shows covered that “market meltdown” throughout the fall, but have spent a lot less time covering recent gains.
On Morning Joe, discussing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to Amazon building an HQ in NYC, which ultimately contributed to Amazon's decision not to proceed, Donny Deutsch describes Ocasio-Cortez as "extremely dangerous," saying she will "hand the presidency back to Donald Trump."
Three distinct tax-the-rich proposals are being promoted by Democrats in Congress. Rather than provide a balanced look at those proposals and their potential impact, CNBC.com boosted the calls to raise taxes on the wealthy. A 9-minute, 37-second video published Feb. 8, cited the different “tax the rich” proposals of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough praises as "strong" the conclusion of President Trump's speech in El Paso, and warns: "any Democrat that thinks they're going to cakewalk to beating Donald Trump in 2020, like they thought in 2016, and like everybody in the press thought in 2016, you need to watch the last four or five minutes of his speech and understand: Democrats have an uphill battle here. It's not going to be easy."
Going “green” will require a lot of green, apparently. Two U.S. legislators have a proposal designed to require substantial changes to every building in the U.S., create rail “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” replace all “combustion engine-vehicles” within a decade, and guarantee everyone a “job,” higher education, “healthy food,” and much more.
Our friend Joe Concha with The Hill was in rare form on Friday’s Fox & Friends, ripping everyone from Chuck Todd for not fact-checking Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Green New Deal to late night comics for their refusal to lampoon her to the double standard regarding the scandals rocking the three state-wide Democrats in Virginia.
Already a biased journalist on the environment based on his December 30 Meet the Press stunt, MTP Daily host Chuck Todd brought on socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for Thursday’s show to discuss how she views the 2020 field, the Green New Deal, and socialism. Not surprisingly, he operated on her turf and didn’t pressure her on any of the outlandish, Soviet-style proposals outlined hours earlier in the Green New Deal.
Stocks “rebounded in spectacular fashion in January,” but anyone reliant on network news programming may not have noticed since the networks proved yet again to care far more about bad economic news.
ABC, CBS and NBC evening news shows covered the bad news for stocks in December and January more than four times more than positive market news during that time (1,745 seconds to 422 seconds or 29 minutes, 8 seconds vs. 7 minutes, 3 seconds).
January was a “blockbuster” month for job gains, in spite of the government shutdown. The 304,000 jobs added was nearly twice as many as the 172,000 forecasters anticipated. Only it didn’t appear that way on the broadcast evening news shows.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., defended her call for an “ultra-millionaires” annual wealth tax as “how the system is supposed to operate,” and “part of the social contract” of America in a CNBC interview.
Wait, since when did wealth redistribution and punishing the wealthiest by instituting a new tax to take $2.75 trillion away from them for what they’ve accumulated become part of the “social contract” of the U.S.?
