Superheroes, the naming of a new royal and an adorable child umpire were all more important to ABC, CBS and NBC news than the latest U.S. economic data.
The Commerce Department announced a better-than-expected estimate of GDP — 2.3 percent — for the first quarter of 2018. In recent years, first quarters have been beset with weakness and economists expected the number to be 2 percent or a little less.
Even though the U.S. economy grew at a 2.9 percent pace in the final quarter of 2017, some in the liberal press have already begun to anticipate a recession — at the worst, possible time for President Donald Trump.
Following the resignation of Gary Cohn as top economic adviser, President Donald Trump selected CNBC contributor and former anchor Larry Kudlow for the spot.
Many liberal media outlets raced to attack the vocal free trade proponent who was the latest prominent person to join the Trump administration. Kudlow had previously served as an informal adviser to the campaign. They attacked him over his support for tax cuts and supply-side economics, as well as failed forecasts.
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) recently increased its estimates for U.S economic growth.Too bad it didn’t heighten network interest in the U.S. economy.
ABC World News Tonight with David Muir, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt and CBS Evening News said nothing about the revised forecast on March 13 or March 14.
Gun control activist and media mogul Michael Bloomberg isn’t just pushing gun control through his activist group — he also has a giant media company to promote those views. Bloomberg media is filled with anti-gun content.
On Thursday, USA Today headlined the possibility, with an accompanying video, that President Donald Trump might "be giving a speech to a empty room in Davos" on Friday. It didn't work out that way.
The liberal media are so reluctant to give President Trump credit for anything positive his legislation achieves, that they will even keep silent when that legislation directly benefits them.
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
In the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel.
Another day, another major story correction. This time, Bloomberg News, which reported on Tuesday that Deutsche Bank records subpoenaed by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller "zeroed in" on President Trump's business dealings, now says that the records Mueller requested instead "pertain to people affiliated with" Trump.
In a story which should have been recognized at least two months and possibly 5-6 months ago but which remained unreported until last week, a Chicago bakery lost one-third of its workforce in July. Press reports during the past week, most prominently one from Bloomberg News seen in the Chicago Tribune and elsewhere, won't directly admit what should be obvious, though the company involved is implausibly denying it: The workers were illegal immigrants.
Those who believe history is presumptively written by the winners haven't seen Francis Wilkinson's attempt to create a bogus narrative on the four-year IRS scandal which appeared at Bloomberg News on Monday.
