It doesn’t take a skilled code-breaker to figure out the liberal networks’ stance on President Donald Trump’s impeachment: There’s no doubt we need witnesses if the Senate is going to conduct a fair trial; impeachment is necessary to prove that nobody — not even the President — is above the law; and there’s no more pressing task for Congress if we’re to keep this President, and future Presidents, from acting like tyrants. But when the President being impeached was a Democrat, the spin was completely reversed.
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.
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.
For all the media brouhaha over an imminent recession in 2019, President Donald Trump’s economy has continued to stupefy prognosticators going into the new year.
In recent days, journalists have mocked Republicans who’ve switched from impeachment advocates in the 1990s to impeachment foes today. But the news media have undergone a similar metamorphosis. The difference is, Republicans (and Democrats) are understood to be political partisans, while the media are ostensibly supposed to be non-partisan. But the record on impeachment shows that journalists are just as partisan as the politicians they cover.
In the latest example of corporate media leftism, the parent company of NBC News — NBCUniversal (“NBCU”) — is set to place NBCU executive Jeff Shell as CEO of the entire company. Shell has given at least $30,600 exclusively to Democrats this election cycle. The Hollywood Reporter wrote Dec. 16, that Shell “will take over as CEO of NBCUniversal from Steve Burke.”
The Democrats in Congress are rolling ahead to vote on articles of impeachment against President Trump, but it's hard to ignore that the nation’s economy is roaring to the best numbers seen since 1969, according to the November jobs report released on Friday. CNBC host Jim Cramer responded to the good news by admitting that liberal “people don’t want to say good things” even though the new Labor Department document contains “the best number I’ve ever seen in my life!”
While the liberal media continue their ongoing impeachment obsession, and with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) directing her chairmen to draft articles of impeachment, the jobs market and stock market continue to steamroll along. “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 266,000 in November, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 3.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today,” according to a Dec. 6 United States Bureau of Labor Statistics News Release.
At this point, it’s no longer surprising that the liberal media aren’t willing to give President Donald Trump an inch of positive coverage, especially when approval trends shift in his favor. A new Dec. 2 report from CNBC revealed that “Sixty percent of small business owners approve of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president.”
Just how unknowledgeable about the economy is Joy Reid? So much so that it drove even the liberal Ron Insana . . . insane, obliging him to correct her misstatements.
In what could be perceived as a subtle barb at Facebook, and perhaps even Twitter too, Snapchat declared its commitment to battling “misinformation” with the upcoming election in mind. “We subject all advertising to review, including political advertising,” the Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said on Monday, according to CNBC. He continued, adding, “I think what we try to do is create a place for political ads on our platform, especially because we reach so many young people and first-time voters we want them to be able to engage with the political conversation, but we don’t allow things like misinformation to appear in that advertising.”
Millions of Americans’ medical data was reportedly shared with Google, and even liberals are calling foul. Democratic leaders, including House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ), Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) have all condemned a business arrangement between Google and Ascension, the leaders “asking for more information about how patient health data is being used and shared” as reported by CNBC.
