This article is infuriating, it really is:
Here’s a telling stat: during the First Felon’s final few months in office, at the heart of the 2000 election season (when EarthBoy Al almost stole the election from GWB), the economy was in the middle of a recession, and a LexisNexis search turned up a little shy of 1400 articles when the term “US economy recession” was typed in. Last July through September, seven years later and with a Republican in the White House, when the GDP was growing at an incredible pace, the liars in the drive-by media managed to generate nearly 2500 articles that turn up under the same search.
Proving himself once again to be just another (lying) politician, “last week, Barack Obama proclaimed ‘As most experts know, our economy is in a recession.'” Not that anyone should be surprised, but “Hillary Clinton made similar staements (sic) last fall.” The article continues: “Yet, as any economist knows, a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative growth, and we haven’t even had one single quarter of negative growth reported. The economy slowed down significantly during the end of last year, but that was after a sizzling annual GDP growth rate of 4.9 percent in the third quarter.”
It’s infuriating that the media is so biased, and it’s also infuriating that such things can prove to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, all the needless, negative nonsense fueling a reduction in consumer confidence (as the article shows) and fueling the need for change.
And the mainstream media wonders why the average American doesn’t trust them…unbelievable.recess
