It's nearly impossible to have even a short conversation with a college administrator, politician or chief executive without the words diversity and inclusion dropping from their lips. Diversity and inclusion appear to be the end-all and be-all of their existence. So, I thought I'd begin this discussion by first looking up the definition of diversity.
President Donald Trump’s economy continues to fly in the face of the liberal media and their recession hype. A new Jan. 17 report by CNBC showed that “U.S. homebuilding surged to a 13-year high [16.9%] in December as activity increased across the board” [emphasis added]. Housing starts spiked 16.9 percent to a “seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.608 million units last month, the highest level since 2006,” [emphasis added] noted CNBC.
Consumer confidence is the highest its been in nearly 20 years. And yet, a recent MRC analysis showed that liberal media networks only gave President Donald Trump’s economy less than one percent coverage on their evening newscasts over a period of 100 days.
President Trump was correct in spirit when he predicted, at the Oval Office on Thursday, that “the USMCA will probably be second” as the liberal media would be hyper-focused on his Impeachment trial in the Senate. It was a prediction a little too favorable to the media seeing as ABC, CBS, and NBC completely ignored the Senate’s overwhelming and bipartisan approval of the United States –Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade during their evening newscasts.
On Thursday, only NBC’s Today show provided a full report on the landmark trade deal President Trump signed with China on Wednesday. However, that coverage included a shocking claim that U.S. trade policy pursued by the Trump administration actually caused American farmers to commit suicide.
While House Democrats were busy sanctimoniously walking to the other side of the Capitol to deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate, President Trump was in the White House signing phase one of a trade deal with China, officially beginning the wind-down of the years-long trade war. Despite this positive economic step that would bring relief to many Americans, CBS and NBC saw fit to downplay it and criticize the President’s praise for the deal.
A new Media Research Center analysis found that the three major network evening newscasts only gave President Donald Trump’s booming economy and U.S. trade nine minutes of coverage since the House Democrats’ impeachment push began on September 24, 2019.
Liberal billionaire and 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has no problem imposing big-government policies on the economy. Yet Yahoo! Finance decided to pull its punches in its reporting by barely critiquing Bloomberg’s left-wing plan.
Not only is the economy doing well, but people's perceptions about the economy are also positive. On Thursday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle declared that such positive economic indicators "should concern Democrats looking ahead to November" because voters are giving President Trump credit for them.
The liberal media can pipe down now that President Donald Trump’s formidable economy is crushing it following his speech concerning the U.S.-Iran conflict Jan. 8.
Thursday was the U.S. stock market’s first day of trading for the 2020 election year and as Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier said on Special Report, “stock markets picked up the new year where they left off in 2019” by setting new record highs, yet again. It was a great way to kick off the new year but as they’ve done with much of the positive economic news since President Trump took office, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely ignored it during their evening newscasts.
It can be useful and instructive to observe the turning of a decade by looking back on what life was like in America a mere 100 years ago. On Jan. 2, 1920, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was 108.76. Today it is over 28,000 points. In 1920, the U.S. had become an economic power, which is remarkable considering the bloody “war to end all wars” that ended just two years earlier. Republican presidents shifted their attention from foreign entanglements to economic growth (sound familiar?).
