We all know that the Biden Administration would love for you to believe that it’s doing a good job running the country. Of course, they would also like you to think that we are “better off” now than we were a year ago when former President Donald Trump was at the helm.
We also know that for more than a few liberally-ran media outlets, they’d do just about anything to preserve the American people’s faith in our now crooked and demented leadership.
But what if I told you that the two were meeting in secret to “reshape” the news coverage you hear on a daily basis?
According to at least one source, that’s exactly what’s going on.
Oliver Darcy, CNN’s chief media correspondent, reported on Monday during its December 6 episode of ‘Reliable Sources’ that a source had told him that the Biden administration has “been working behind the scenes,” meeting with press members to “reshape coverage” in favor of the current White House leadership.
In particular, news about the economy and the current state of affairs was being discussed and “reshaped.”
Over the past few weeks, the Biden White House has supposedly met with select members of the press on a few occasions in which briefings “pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more” were discussed.
According to Darcy, the White House is very serious about making sure you and I believe that the nation’s economy is better under Biden’s hands than Trump’s. And to prove it, he’s letting certain journalists, reporters, and producers gain access to some of his officials. Most notably, these are people like National Economic Council Deputy Directors Bharat Ramamurti and David Kamin, as well as Ports Envoy John Porcari.
Darcy noted his source to believe that the basic idea was to create positive news about the economy, supply chain crisis, and employment rates where none has been found for a while.
Despite inflation being on the rise (hitting a 30 year high back in October), goods and supplies becoming harder and harder to find as well as more expensive, and the holiday season in full swing, Biden wants us all to see him as our savior. You know, just like “his” vaccines have supposedly saved us from COVID-19 and its subsequent pandemic.
Now, to some extent, I can’t say that I blame him for trying. After all, he’s quickly becoming the most disliked president in our nation’s history. According to recent polls, some 47 percent of Americans don’t think he’s doing a good job. And for his second in command, Vice President Kamala Harris, only 28 percent believe she’s doing any good.
If Biden, his administration, or even the entire Democratic Party at this point are going to survive the next few years, he’s going to have to gain quite a bit more support. It’s already pretty much a given that 2022 will result in record wins for the political right, restoring them to power in both the United States House of Representatives and the Senate, where their majorities are currently razor thin.
But to meet behind closed doors to “reshape” the reality of our nation’s economic state?
As one social media user commented, “Sounds like state-run media to me.” And I can’t say that I disagree. I mean, these are stunts not so democratic and free countries like China, Russia, and Cuba pull.
Instead of letting us all see what’s really going on in the nation and to our economy, Biden is making press conferences imply that people are not be negatively affected by inflation, that supply chain crises aren’t having any effect on the holiday season, and that he’s doing everything right to ensure you have a safe and happy future.
Unfortunately for him, the gig is already up. In fact, according to an early December poll from Gallup, some 45 percent of American households are already feeling the strain of inflation on their daily and weekly budgets. In addition, some ten percent more say that the current economic situations have caused “severe hardship” for their homes. And, of course, low-income families who were barely able to scrape out a living before are even worse off.
And Fox News, consulted by the National Association for Business Economics, says that these problems will likely last for years now.
But, of course, that’s not what Biden wants you to hear. So take it from him, he knows what he’s doing, and it will always be better than Trump…
