...Until they got a Democrat elected President.
Who can forget the raised eybrows of that Canadian scumbag Peter Jennings throughout the campaign of 1992 as he began what seemed like every nightly ABC newscast with, "More bad news for George Bush tonight..." Yep, Jennings and the rest of them took their cue from James "It's the economy, stupid" Carville and ran like hell with it.
And who can forget the New York Times congratulating Clinton in February 1993 for bringing the nation out of its recession, even though the data that showed improvement in the economy was from a previous quarter, before Clinto even took office? Sure, the New York Times did acknowledge its error when called on it, and even printed a correction a few days later - - deep in the paper where casual readers wouldn't notice it.
Of course, the President is not a Republican, but a Democrat. The Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms worked hard to get their communist scumbag Ubama elected and you better believe they will do everything in their power to protect him. Lying about the economy is "job one".
What we are witnessing now from the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms is an approach to reporting on the state of the economy that would make "Baghdad Bob" blush. They relentlessly continue to report on the status of the make-believe "recovery" as if anybody with an IQ over 75 even buys the premise that there is a recovery at all. You can only wonder if the Democrat anchors, reporters, and pundits inwardly roll their eyes at their own brazen hypocrisy.
Yeah. I remember the news THE DAY AFTER the election in 1992 running the story that te Recession had ended in May and te economy had in fact been improving since then.
