    Default Liberal Media Still Rooting Against Strong Trump Economy

    It was only a few years back that I started talking smack about a few of the fact checking websites, and Politifact being the worst. The owner is is known liberal and known to have even stated himself that things get skewed at times. And yet they were for whatever reason relied upon. I don't know much about owners, but even Snopes has been busted a ton of times.

    Post and liberal media again get it wrong about Trump economy

    It's a problem when all of the Washington Post's 'fact checkers' play for the liberal team

    First, a full admission about this article. I originally sent a version of it to The Washington Post for publication, but for reasons that will become obvious as you read on, they rejected it.

    Here’s the back story. Several weeks ago, I reported on the very large increase in median household incomes under Donald Trump. Based on Census Bureau monthly data, from January 2017, when President Trump entered office, through August 2019 middle-class household incomes had risen from $61,000 to an all-time high $66,000. These numbers are in 2019 dollars — that is, they are adjusted for inflation. Mr. Trump has repeatedly cited these numbers.

    The left freaked out for understandable reasons. They are especially agitated because median household incomes have risen by $5,000 under Mr. Trump, compared to $1,100 in seven years under President Obama. (See chart.) The data also undermines the case against Mr. Trump — which as Elizabeth Warren likes to say in every speech: “the middle class has been left behind by Trump’s policies.” That’s flat out wrong.

    The self-proclaimed “fact checkers” on the left went to work to try to discredit the numbers. This includes The Washington Post, PolitiFact and others. As an aside, we have a big problem in America when the “fact checkers” are all playing for the liberal team. A case in point is the liberal PolitiFact, which declared in a screaming headline: “Trump’s Shaky $5,000 Boast.” The Washington Post gave Mr. Trump two Pinochhio for claiming these income gains and said “Trump Inflates His Economic Record.”

    A standard complaint is that these numbers are assembled by a private organization called Sentier Research. But the two Sentier statisticians who analyzed this monthly Census Current Population Survey data — the gold mine of economic information — are probably the most knowledgeable people in the country on this survey data.

    I promise you that if we don't have another recession in 20 years, it will STILL be Trump's fault when it happens.

    The clowns are playing the odds knowing sooner or later it'll get here. They're hope is sooner. I have to say I'm surprised it has stayed as strong as it has as long as it has. Pete must be loving it

    They've successfully predicted eight of the last three recessions!
