We have a problem in the United States where people have so much allegiance to a politician that they’re willing to do or say anything they want. The White House requested positive coverage of President Joe Biden’s administration, and many of the reporters and news outlets jumped at the opportunity to step up to the plate.
Jim Cramer, host of Mad Money on CNBC, said, “To me, we have the strongest economy, perhaps, I’ve ever seen.”
Though Cramer said it as his view, this comes just days after the White House met with journalists behind the scenes to discuss positive reporting for economic issues.
Tucker Carlson, Fox News host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, couldn’t let this go, and you shouldn’t either. Carlson said on his show, “In a normal country with a functioning meritocracy, anyone who said something like that on TV would no longer be promoting stocks. He’d be cleaning your pool, assuming he had the necessary skills. But there he is, the same man still on TV, a living testament to our leader’s suicidal tendency to reward failure.”
When a politician is asking for positive coverage, turn the news off. There’s nothing that they’re going to talk about that’s honest unless they’re talking negatively about the politician asking for help. If they aren’t, don’t watch them again.
The job reports and Biden’s bragging about how many jobs were created and filled when he took office aren’t real numbers. The U.S. was coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, and states opened back up when Biden took office. The majority, not all, of those numbers are because of that rather than any effort from the Biden administration. The Biden Administration shut down operations like the Keystone XL Pipeline, hiring 11,000 people. However, there wasn’t a definite number because the pipeline was shut down.
The Willow Project would have provided Alaska thousands of jobs and billions in revenue if the Biden administration had gone through.
Not to mention, both of these projects were going to provide oil to the U.S. and continue oil independence for the U.S. Biden’s outsourcing of oil is costing more money out of Americans’ pockets, and it’s a problem. More so, it’s a manufactured problem that the Biden Administration created, and they’re grouping the post-COVID-19 job numbers into the equation. Even fact-checkers at PolitiFact have agreed that the post-COVID-19 and vaccine rollout job numbers are factored in and shouldn’t be.
