News Media quotes bogus CBO Report 81 times

Posted in Uncategorized by simpletruthiness on January 27, 2009

Amazing. Simple Amazing. No one checked up on it. Whatever happened to journalistic standards? Someone should get axed behind this the same way Dan Rather did for going on air with improperly source material.

These yahoos with all their righteous indignation using figures don’t exist and if they do would just be an estimate. These same wise and learned people in 2010 would be say tisk tisk should have passed the stimulus in 2009. The media is often accused of having a bias one way or another.Obviously their only real bias is towards the lowest common denominator not a party or idealogy. Even MSNBC which has relentllessly been accused of being pro President Obama was quoting this non existent report.

What is missing from this conversation is their gross negilgence of duty. Their duty is to inform people. Not only are they misinforming people they are prepping them with false expectations. There is not a quick fix. 2010 is next year people. Many reliable sources you know the kinds of people who know about the economy have said there is not quick fix and they have theroies on what recovery looks like. Oh hey you could cover that in more depth. If we cast about for an instant fix will will be sorely disappointed and whats worse we will shift towards a steeper decline. While we listen to moron’s with no agenda other than to excite and huff and puff for ratings. Nero fiddled we are flipping the channels.
