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.
So all the protests, all the disrespectful kneeling and the John Carlos wannabes making power salutes during the national anthem have led to the NFL's $89 million "Let's Listen Together" campaign. The grand solution to two seasons of bellyaching by rich, disgruntled social justice warriors in football uniforms is, as USA Today's Nancy Armour describes it, "a marketing campaign to highlight the work players have been doing on social justice reform and racial equality, and draw further attention to the problems that prompted the protests in the first place."
Abortion used to be a private matter between a woman and her doctor, but when the family of Tim Tebow is involved then it's everybody's business. That was the liberal narrative in 2010 when, in a Super Bowl commercial, Tim thanked his mother Pam for giving him the gift of life. Liberals cried "foul!" then and now USA Today has named it among the most controversial Super Bowl ads of all time.
No need for you to select your team in the 2018 Super Bowl match-up between Philadelphia and New England. USA Today sports writer Martin Rogers has already assigned your team for you based on your politics. If you're a Republican, the Patriots are your team. If you're a Democrat, you're cheering for an Eagles' win. Done deal.
Reporters continue to concoct reasons to complain as more than 2 million American individuals and their families have suddenly become better off than they were three weeks ago. Even the news that the nation's largest retailer is raising its nationwide minimum wage while paying bonuses of up to $1,000 to every employee, and that an automaker is investing $1 billion in U.S. production, haven't moved cynics who refuse to concede the unconditional positivity in all of this.
It takes a special talent to spin news which is unquestionably positive into something negative. But Christopher Rugaber and Josh Boak at the Associated Press were up to the task in a Wednesday afternoon report on bonuses, pay raises, and other benefits which now have been showered on well over 2 million American workers since the December passage of federal tax cuts.
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.
Up until the moment it was signed into law, many press reports on the tax law portrayed it or strongly implied that it contained increases or virtually nothing for most taxpayers while granting big breaks to "wealthy" households (the term preferred over the genuinely accurate "high-income" label). So imagine how surprised some Americans must be to learn that the press is having a very difficult time finding actual examples of individuals and families — both theoretical and in real life — whose taxes will go up.
For the first time in its 121-year history, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained more than 5,000 points in a single year, according to CNBC. The major stock index set that record Dec. 18, following a 140-point rally and a new record closing high. CNBC.com also noted that there had been 70 closing highs for the DJIA in 2017.
USA Today reporter Paul Davidson apparently doesn't understand that policies which help workers get hired and keep their jobs are more "worker-friendly" than those designed to line trial lawyers' pockets and help labor unions coerce companies into dealing with them. At least twice this year, Davidson, in his headlines and his content, has characterized moves by the federal government's National Labor Relations Board which have restored predictable economic order as "overturning" Obama-era regulations which were supposedly "worker-friendly," but really weren't.
American skier Lindsey Vonn just made news for politicizing the upcoming Winter Olympic Games and USA Today writer Nancy Armour is doing so as well. Armour insists the Trump Administration is interfering with Olympic officials over security concerns and needs to mind its own business.
This week on Morning Joe, the show’s liberal panelists have been working overtime not to cover one of the most significant stories that broke this past weekend. Namely, multiple journalistic outlets have revealed significant conflicts of interest at the FBI over the past two years that could have directly impacted agents’ investigations into Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and their respective associates.
