Since President Trump took office, the economy is booming, according to such reliable sources as federal agencies, analysts and data from the private sector.
That may not be good enough for the press, however.
The news media is seeking to rewrite history to credit former President Barack Obama for this feat, says one major business publication.
The stronger the economy gets under Trump, the more desperate his critics are to hand credit over to Obama. Even if that entails changing the past, says an Investors Business Daily editorial. A recent New York Times story says it all: An economic upturn begun under Obama is now Trumps to tout.
Things were not always thus.
We seem to recall that the economy was stagnating in 2016 after the weakest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression, the IBD editorial noted. In fact, The New York Times itself described Obamas economy this way in August 2016: For three quarters in a row, the growth rate of the economy has hovered around a mere 1 percent, the IBD editorial recalled. In the last quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016, the economy expanded at feeble annual rates of 0.9 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.
The editorial also cited similar coverage at CBS News.

0b@m@ was a loser and accomplished nothing except the near destruction of the US.
Throwing out Obama and his regulations does wonders
Liberals will not admit that tax cuts and lower regulation spur the economy, how can you even have a discussion with them?
Obama was a Communist and therefore a Liar.
Why would his media be any different?
The left will do anything and everything it can to protect their most blessed and holy messiah.....in reality, he was an unqualified, ineligible, muslim-loving, American-hating faggy twit....an enemy of the People.

Much of what George Orwell wrote in 1984,69 years ago,is pointed directly at lunatic democrats and other liberals,
and their Ministry of Truth.
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed if all records told the same tale then the lie passed into history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell 1984
He also wrote “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history”
It’s absurd to give Obama credit for it, considering that he ridiculed Trump for claiming it was even possible.
History will say , Obama ,Obama didn’t he destroy Netflix ?
As president Trump goes merrily along getting rid of 0bama’s legacy we see 4% GDP.
Even democrats, progressives, liberals can see the economic activity surrounding them.
Democrats! Reality can be a good thing. #Walkaway.
Anybody believing Obama is behind the current good times is nuts, or the kind of liar that stands behind the crooked preacher nodding at every line of BS he spews knowing it’s BS.
The Boy Scouts and COEd bathrooms is his legacy and everyone knows it.who cares what the MSM say.
There’s always Twitter.
Why is the news media seeking to rewrite history?" It is clear to even the low information voters that Trump's policies are the cause of our booming economy.
Trying to credit Obama makes the news media look rather foolish and maybe stupid. What evidence do they offer? Given the number of unemployed, the number on food stamps, and the number of job openings were anemic, and mainly low paying government jobs during Obama's eight years.
Are they that desperate? The news media is going to drown in its own excrement.
