NBC, CBS Censor ‘Fastest Growth Ever’; ABC Suppresses Trump Economy
NewsBusters ^ | 10/29/2020 | Joseph Vazquez

America is five days away from the presidential election, and the NBC and CBS morning news shows censored an astounding recovery in U.S. GDP growth. The ABC morning news show coverage of the news was a weak micro-mention.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released it’s long-expected third quarter GDP estimates at 8:30 a.m., and the results were jaw-dropping. Actual GDP growth in the third quarter was 7.4 percent, which the New York Post said was a “record-setting rebound.”

That is an understatement. On an annualized basis, the GDP growth went from falling an atrocious 31.4 percent in the second quarter to skyrocketing to a 33.1 percent rate this quarter, erasing its second quarter annualized rate loss. CNBC noted that economists surveyed by Dow Jones were expecting a 32 percent annual rate increase, meaning that the actual BEA estimates beat expectations by a comfortable 1.1 percent. If that wasn’t enough, CNBC noted that this was U.S. GDP’s “fastest growth ever.” [Emphasis added.]

This astonishing increase bolsters President Donald Trump’s optimism about a potential “V-shaped” recovery going into the election. But, in a gross display of negligence by journalists, NBC’s Today (including Today’s third hour broadcast) and CBS This Morning censored the GDP growth news during their morning shows. ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA) suppressed the news.

Not gross negligence, deliberate malfeasance.

Bit when Obama’s unemployment number went down a quarter of a percent less than a week before the 2012 election it was front page news heard round the earth.

They want a war? They are likely to get one. Maybe they might report that.

They don’t want to talk about Hunter. They don’t want to talk about the exploding economy. What the hell good are they?
