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.
Once again showing systemic anti-Trump bias, the principal national evening newscasts of the six leading Spanish-language television networks in the United States all pointedly declined to report on President Donald Trump’s soaring job approval ratings among Hispanic-Americans.
Lady Gaga started off her new Las Vegas residency, dubbed “Enigma,” with a political bang. The famous avant-garde singer, now A-list actress, took time out of her Saturday show to blast Vice President Mike Pence as a “disgrace” to his Christianity, and complained to the crowd about the “fucking president” not getting the government back up and running.
En otra evidente señal de que simplemente no toleran más logros positivos de Trump en la economía, los principales noticiarios nocturnos nacionales en Univisión, Telemundo y CNN en Español, dejaron fuera de sus reportes la tercer baja alcanzada bajo el gobierno de Trump en el desempleo hispano, que cayó a 4,4% en diciembre de 2018.
The December jobs report showing 312,000 jobs added was a “boom,” a “surge,” and a huge “surprise.” While all three networks noticed the big economic story on Jan. 4, ABC World News Tonight with David Muir didn’t bother to spend much time telling people about it.
In yet another telltale sign that they just can’t take any more Trump era “winning” on the economy, the principal national evening news programs of Univision, Telemundo and CNN en Español all neglected to inform their viewers that Hispanic-American unemployment hit its third record low achieved under the Trump administration, falling to 4.4% in December, 2018.
The December jobs report crushed expectations on Jan. 4, with 312,000 jobs added, a strong participation rate, wage gains and two months of upward revisions. That was 136,000 jobs more than expected.
WASHINGTON -- Homelessness is up for the second year in a row. That is no surprise to me. I spent the last few days in New York City, where it seems the homeless are as numerous as the tourists. They are everywhere. Not that they are not numerous in our nation's capital, too. I returned to Washington by the train, and there are areas of Union Station that are as populated with homeless people as the nearby shelter. The scenes are appalling. What can be done for these poor wretches?
The liberal media were at it again in 2018, continuing to misreport, exaggerate, censor and spin business and economic news.
Some moments were laughable, such as when a New York Times reporter implied America no longer uses coal for energy. Others, such as the warning of a “climate genocide,” were no laughing matter.
The U.S. created 155,000 jobs in November. Although it was lower than forecasts the number was “not bad.” In fact, it’s still more jobs than are needed to keep up with population growth and drive down the already low unemployment rate. But that’s not how the networks covered it.
The Right Scoop professed surprise that CNN morning anchor Christine Romans reported on the latest unemployment figures without the usual agony over the Trump administration.The jobs number was "weaker than expected," they said. But Romans suggested the expectations were too high at this "very low" unemployment rate:
The Washington Post Fact Checker is constantly slinging its Pinocchios at Donald Trump, calling him out for lying here, there, and everywhere. But when a liberal Democrat presidential aspirant like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand messes up, curiously, somehow the Pinocchios get stuck and won't come out of the box. On November 15, Fact Checker Glenn Kessler wrote a piece titled "Gillibrand's cascade of misfired employment statistics." She admitted error....so no Pinocchios for your political record.
