Mainstream media biased on taxes

*In their embarrassing haste to paint President Trump evil the mainstream media (MSM) has jumped all over the proposed tax cuts as “favoring the rich.” Yet a cursory look at the chart below shows that the top 20% pay 86.6% of the taxes. So, duh, any tax cut would give them a disproportionate benefit as they pay a DISPROPORTIONATE share of the taxes.* 

*In the MSM’s quest for “fairness” they neglect to mention the bottom 40% who actually receive our tax dollars from the government.*

While we are on the subject of taxes and the rich and poor, take a look at Number 8 in Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky’s menu for creating a Socialist State – “Class warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.”

Syrian survivor thanks President Trump on CNN

*Here is an interview by Brooke Baldwin of CNN. The interviewee is Kassem Eid, a survivor of the 2013 Syrian chemical attack. He was brought to CNN to express his anxiety about the Syrian innocents. Baldwin brought Kassem back to CNN to try and frame a narrative about President Trump’s airstrike in Syria, but being unwilling to accept Syrian refugees. CNN did not expect the candor it got from this survivor.*

Mainstream media on another Republican President

*It just never ends, does it? This is a Time cover from 2006 when George Bush was President. Clearly Time didn’t care for him any more than it and the rest of the mainstream media does for President Trump.*

TV News -How was our new President handled in first 30 days – MRC

A new American President is always a big story, but TV news is obsessed with the Trump administration — and not in a good way. The Media Research Center  offered the following rundown on the new President’s first 30 days.

In the first 30 days (January 20 to February 18), our analysts determined that the President and his team were the subject of 16 hours of coverage on just the Big Three evening newscasts. This equates to more than half (54%) of all of the news coverage during this period.

While most new presidents enjoy a media honeymoon, the tone of Trump’s coverage was nearly as hostile (88% negative) as we found during last year’s presidential campaign (91% negative).

U.S. finally on ‘right track’ – Poll

Despite what we hear from the mainstream media, the country is straightening itself out under the stewardship of President Trump.

Forty-six percent (46%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending February 16.

That’s up a point from the previous week. This is the fourth week in a row that this finding has been in the mid-40s after running in the mid- to upper 20s for much of 2016. The latest finding is higher that any week during the Obama presidency. (emphasis mine

One Regular Guy Writing about Food, Exercise and Living Past 100

I don’t plan to do a lot of writing about politics or the mainstream media, but as a former member of it, I am appalled at the quality of the information the media is attempting to shove down the public’s throat.  I wrote about CNBC Chief Washington Correspondent, John Harwood previously.

A headline in the Washington Post Opinion page by stated  Trump is being handed a great economy. What happens when it goes south? As if the economy declining after the new president takes office is a foregone conclusion.

The Media and the new President

President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht, the Pope accepted and during lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff’s hat off, right into the water.

It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.

The crew and the secret service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying “Never mind, boys, I’ll get it.”

The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed onto the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.

The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope’s entourage were speechless.

No one knew what to say, not even the Pope.

But that afternoon, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN all knew how to cover the story. Their banner headlines read,

“TRUMP CAN’T SWIM!”
