How The Media Are Lying Right Now: Getting Poorer Under Biden’s Economy Is All In Your Head

Biden-driven inflation continues to crush American consumers, but corporate media keep trying to explain it away as a ‘misconception.’


If you’re feeling a little down about your personal finances — which is to say, absolutely decimated by Biden-driven inflation — don’t you worry. The news media are here to tell you just how wrong those feelings are!

The Guardian this week published the results of a laughable poll that asked respondents to share their feelings about the U.S. economy. Surprising to no one, Americans’ feelings are the opposite of good. Yet the Guardian saw the results as an opportunity to declare public sentiment about a subjective topic unequivocally WRONG!

“Nearly three in five Americans wrongly believe the US is in an economic recession,” the article said, “and the majority blame the Biden administration.” It further highlighted what it said are voter “misconceptions,” including that the economy is in recession and that unemployment is at a record high. Most irksome of all, The Guardian said the survey showed nearly three-fourths of respondents “think inflation is increasing. In reality, the rate of inflation has fallen sharply from its post-Covid peak of 9.1%.”

Technical limitations won’t allow me to insert two massive middle fingers right here.

It’s unclear whether journalists really are too stupid to understand the compounding effect of inflation — regardless of whether its rate of increase has “sharply fallen” — or if they’re simply engaging in their usual mass deception and manipulation to help a Democrat. (In this case, Joe Biden.) Of course, it could be a mercurial mix of the two.

For any of them reading this right now, inflation doesn’t “fall” in ways felt by consumers unless prices either revert to previous lower numbers or close to them. It’s simple: If a product is $3, but shoots up in a month to $6, that’s a 100 percent rate of inflation. If the rate of inflation over the next month “falls” to 50 percent, the price of that product will have gone up another three bucks, making it $9.

Yes, inflation technically “fell” by half, but if the rate isn’t 0 percent, then the price is still going up, just not as sharply as before. Even at 0 percent inflation, that means the price of the product remains 100 percent higher than it was just a month ago.

But the dumb and manipulative media keep harping that inflation “sharply fell” in order to create the impression that prices are also falling, when in fact, they’re still going up, simply at a slower pace. Weirdly enough, repeatedly berating me about how inflation is “falling” doesn’t seem to make a difference to my checking account when I’m still paying more for standard goods and services.

Compounding the Biden-driven inflation crisis, it doesn’t hit consumers every once in a while. It’s literally every time they go to the grocery store, which for most households is at least weekly. Each time they go, they’re spending significantly more on products that were much cheaper just three years earlier.

The Guardian article was of course amplified by the rest of the media that take it upon themselves to defend any Democrat president. This one’s biggest liability for reelection is the economy he’s shot full of holes with his retarded policies (one of which was referred to as the “Inflation Reduction Act”). On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski shook her platinum-blonde bob and cited the survey in dismay, saying there’s “not a lot of truth” to what critics of the current economic conditions have to say about it.

Axios picked up the Guardian report and ran its own article under the headline, “More than half of Americans think the U.S. is in a recession. It’s not.” Emily Peck, the author of that write-up, helpfully declared, “The economy is actually in good shape and there’s no recession.”

Well, why didn’t you say so? Honey, wake up the kids! We’re going shopping on Fifth Avenue!

No one knew such a strong economy could hurt this good.
