Twenty-three million people unemployed or underemployed, a $16-trillion debt and repeated trillion-dollar deficits.
The scariest thing this Halloween has nothing to do with witches and goblins or even the Munsters remake (ugh). The scariest thing in America right now is the continued awful economy.
An incumbent president running for re-election in a down economy weve heard that story before. Only when we heard it last time, George W. Bush was running for re-election in 2004 and the economy was in remarkably fine shape.
That horror story hasnt been told by the major media according to a soon-to-be-released report from the Media Research Center titled Upside Down Economics. The report shows the reality of two different elections and how ABC, CBS and NBC chose to depict the Bush economy as doing badly and ignored or downplay the many faults of the Obama economic record.
Think back to September, 2004. Broadcast coverage criticized Bush on the economy despite economic growth of 3.3 percent, an unemployment rate of just 5.4 percent and gas prices a low $1.82. Even the $7.4 trillion federal debt is but a fond memory now.

Every night gas prices led the news.
Now it’s rarely mentioned.
ABC is doing a help American jobs Made in USA segment.
Went from bad news every night Bush era to cheer leading.
There’s no quandary here. They’re still blaming Bush. They never stopped. You can’t blame Obama, because the Blame has already been placed.
You need no further evidence of extensive media bias than to compare the Bush reelection coverage with the Obama reelection coverage.
I am now convinced that I have the answer.
I recently found a book at a yard sale entitled "Toward the year 2018". It is written by think tank types, college professors and other futurist. It was written in 1968 and attempts to predict what the world will look like in 50 years, 2018.
the different chapters written by different experts describe how they foresee different fields evolving. They cover such areas as space, transportation, education, computers, technology, energy, economics, population and so on.
Most of their predictions are wrong. For instance they predict that in 50 years people will be much more enlightened and will have solved issues with race, food, economic cycles, and will even have mastered the weather.
The part I found interesting was that weaving through each chapter was the idea that a future world would undoubtedly have governmental structures that would unify all of the populations. That is why the utopians see no harm in tearing down the country, because they are looking 50 years into the future where they see a one world government run by elites who will control everything from the weather, to the oceans, to populations.
Lets face it folks, we have a corrupt media in this country and the don’t care what you think.
If the 9/11 attacks on NY occurred today we’d only know of it through Fox news.
MSM is filled with camping workers rather than new men.
