Cheerleaders for the Democrat Party – The Mainstream Media
By Scott Rohter, November 2014
The jobs report supposedly looks good. The unemployment rate has fallen to below eight percent and supposedly the economy is steadily improving. Almost 500,000 more people have signed up for health insurance at the government’s website than the Administration has predicted. Supposedly it is more than their goal of seven million new registrants. The nightly news seems to be replete with good news for Democrats. It feels like a public relations promotion for the Obama Administration which is desperately trying to put another Democrat in the White House and give voters a reason to send a majority of Democrats to Congress in 2016… but is all of this positive news really as rosy as the media is portraying it?
Just how many of those seven and a half million people who signed up for health insurance on the government’s website didn’t actually have health insurance before?… We don’t know the answer to that question because the media doesn’t tell us. They left that little piece of information conveniently out of their stories. Why is such an important fact omitted from their news coverage of the Affordable Care Act?
What about the jobs report? Can we honestly believe the government’s own numbers? Can we trust the media to accurately portray the real employment figures? How many new employees that have been hired are actually full time employees who receive full benefits as well as a living wage? We don’t know the answer to that question because the media doesn’t report the rest of the story. It is a significant piece of information that is always omitted from their stories. How many of those new employees work less than the minimum thirty hours a week so that their employers don’t have to provide them with health insurance and other benefits?
The mainstream media only tells you a small part of the story… the part that is always designed to make Democrats look good. They don’t report anything that makes Democrats look bad. That’s why the nightly news has become a nightly charade. It is really just an intensive marketing strategy to send more Democrats to Washington, and it is being promoted by journalists who are really cheerleaders for the Democrat Party.
