The establishment media continues to tip its hand that liberally-biased outlets want America to fail.
Since President Donald J. Trump won the historic 2016 election and set the nation on a positive economic trajectory, left-wing pundits have repeatedly attempted to instill recession fears and openly wished for economic crisis as unemployment rates hit 50-year lows, as well as all-time lows for African-Americans and Latino-Americans.
Now that the COVID-19 pandemic spawned by communist China has shuttered the economy and put millions out of work, Democrat-serving media sources are attacking governors who want to reopen and help everyday families get back to work.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has gone on the record indicating he plans to reopen portions of the state’s economy beginning May 4. That reasonable and measured approach prompted a call and interview from National Public Radio (NPR), widely known as an extension of the Democratic Party.
“And so when I look at Omaha, and I say, jeez, when we’ve got, you know, over 40% of our hospital beds are available, over 40 percent of our ICU beds available and 75 percent of our ventilators are available in our biggest metropolitan area, then we can start loosening some of the restrictions,” Gov. Ricketts said. “We’re just going to do this a step at a time to make sure that we watch very closely what happens because if it looks like we’re starting to see more people going to use those resources, than we may have to slow it down a little bit.”
The political strategists at NPR quickly pivoted and inserted a widely circulating fake news item that South Dakota had become a national “hot spot” because an essential pork processing plant remained open.
“But other states have seen meat processing plants become hotspots of infection. It’s been reported that in Dakota County, which is home to a Tyson plant, it’s — there’s been reported 133 new COVID-19 cases as of last week, bringing the total to 246,” NPR’s Michel Martin reportedly said.
The fake news media had deployed wide-reaching resources to falsely target South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, trying to claim the plant was wrongly open. Deemed an essential business, the plant accounts for upwards of 6 percent of the country’s pork processing. Calling it a “hot spot” was nothing but backdoor rhetoric that made South Dakota seem like New York City. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The biased, yellow journalists at Politico recently aligned themselves with the leader in fake news — CNN — by running an attack piece on Colorado Gov. Jared Polis. The Rocky Mountain state official was put on the defensive after indicating businesses would begin to reopen. Well-known anti-Trump CNN star Jake Trapper used the State of the Union program to undermine the governor’s decision.
Trapper asserted that even a staggered and strategic reopening of businesses could “cost your constituents their lives.”
Governors poised to reopen their economies have been called “reckless” and “flying blind,” among other things by the fake news. Fearmongering has been the weapon of choice for Democrat-aligned media outlets that are hoping the president is unable to revitalize the economy quickly, help businesses avoid bankruptcy, and restore working families’ paychecks.
