OK, I’m sitting here watching Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s TODAY SHOW. She is doing a report on the Tax Reform Bill. She points out that polling of the public finds that the proposed Bill is ‘unpopular’ with the public. Perhaps you are surprised. Maybe even Savanna is surprised. I don’t know why – the Democratic Party, ably assisted by the lamestream media, has been telling absolute lies about the Bill for months.
Then Savannah interviews Republican Leader Paul Ryan. In typical lamestream media mode, she rarely allows Ryan to answer a question without interrupting to ask another or challenging what he is trying to say. Then, as if by magic, Savannah discovers a new word. She asked Ryan about liberal charges that passage of the Tax Reform Bill would result in – dare I repeat Savannah’s new word – a “DEFICIT” in the budget. You, I’m quite sure, are familiar with this word. It just kinda’ seems that Savannah and everybody else in the lamestream media lost it for the 8 years of the Obama administration. And now they have rediscovered it. I find this especially interesting in view of the fact that POTUS Obama’s DEFICITS more than doubled the national debt in those 8 years. But they have dusted the word off and returned it to their lexicon. And Savannah is adamant that Ryan must justify passing a Bill that will add more than a trillion dollars to the debt in ten years. Unwilling to entertain the possibility that Ryan’s explanation as to why her assumption is wrong she proceeded on. Again, this is after she was totally disinterested in POTUS Obama adding more than 10 trillion in 8 years.
Savannah also seemed quite incensed that the biggest cut was for corporations. I believe that Savannah is a lawyer so I find it curious that she apparently doesn’t know just how absolutely stupid this position is. I’m not going to take the time to delve into this issue today other than to suggest if there’s anyone out there who does not already understand this, but who wants to, should check out my Blog posting of 2/5/16. Just enter “patter” (without the quote marks) in the search window of my Blog and the posting titled “ECON 101” will pop up.
I’m sure that Matt Liar will be happy to know that, despite his departure, media bias yet reigns at NBC.
