Did you know you just got a $1,200 raise? Well, you did, according to CNN at least.
“Next time you stop at a gas station, think of it as a $100-a-month tax cut. Or a maybe $100-a-month raise,” Chris Isidore urged in an absurd CNN Business article heralding that “America just got a $100-a-month raise.” “The steady drop in gas prices over the last few months has turned into an unexpected form of economic stimulus, coming at a time when the Federal Reserve is trying to cool the economy and battle rising prices with higher interest rates.”
This spin — that a minor drop in gas prices following a major spike is “economic stimulus” — is about on par with President Joe Biden and his media lapdogs corroborating each others’ fake news that an 8.5 percent inflation increase is actually “zero.” Or the corporate press, after two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth, waxing philosophical about suddenly unknowable mysteries like “What is a recession?” Or The New York Times insisting that even though Americans’ quality of life is rapidly declining, “Biden is having a good day” because his aviator shades are back. Or The Washington Post’s resident fake conservative announcing that if everything weren’t horrible, everything would be awesome. The media’s propensity to lie about anything unflattering to the regime truly knows no bounds.
