Thank God for requests from Vice President Kamala Harris’ team for driving up positive coverage. Honestly, if she did her job, then we wouldn’t need to have a perception of excellence in the first place, but she wasn’t hired on any merit other than race and gender. You get what you vote for.
CNN, of course, would jump on the opportunity to say “yes, daddy” to the White House, and it shows.
CNN’s Oliver Darcy said, “I’m told the conversations have been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials.”
These people aren’t celebrities. They’re politicians. They don’t deserve good media coverage unless they’re doing an excellent job for the country. If they have to ask, you can already guess that they’re not doing a good job.
Don Lemon reported, “This is a huge economic relief for millions of Americans who have been dealing with skyrocketing energy prices. The price of gasoline is finally beginning to fall.”
Great. Now Don Lemon is lying to us. Oh yeah, he always was.
Lemon also said, “Can we pause for a moment to rejoice in the good news? I’ll take it wherever I can find it.”
Can we recognize that it was a manufactured crisis? That’s the important issue. Why was there a rise in gas prices after Biden was elected? That’s not a coincidence. The media has to stop pandering to politicians in either party, especially when asked.
Lemon also said that the White House predicted the fuel price would fall to $3.01 by January, but the government also said that the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a success, and Epstein killed himself.
So, what does the U.S. Energy Information Administration say? Gas prices averaged $3.272 in September, $3.84 in October, and $3.49 in November.
I’m no mathematician, but it seems that gas prices were low up to November 2020, but it’s slipping my mind as to what happened then. The gas prices for December 2020 rose to a high that hadn’t been seen for nine months prior. There’s been a steady increase in gas prices since Biden was elected, even if just by $0.02 per monthly average, and it shouldn’t go unnoticed. There’s no “good coverage” that will take that statistical fact away.
