NY Times, WaPo Go Waaay Off-Script in Latest Reports on Trump

By

The mainstream media takes a lot of flak for failing to adhere to the ideal of objective reporting. And with good reason.

But, every so often some of the bigger press outlets do let down their liberal guard and actually report the truth.

Such was the case with the New York Times and the Washington Post this weekend, when both of the nation’s top two newspapers acknowledged that President Trump has succeeded in restoring the American economy.

This was how the Post reported it:

“Blue-collar jobs are growing at their fastest rate in more than 30 years, helping fuel a hiring boom in many small towns and rural areas that are strong supporters of President Trump ahead of November’s mid-term elections.

“In the past year, the economy has added 656,000 blue-collar jobs, compared to 1.7 million added in the services sector. But the rate of growth in blue-collar jobs is speeding up, while service-sector job growth has hovered around 1.3 percent over the past year.”

The Times added:

“The headlines for the August job numbers released this morning are nothing but good. Employers added a robust 201,000 jobs, the unemployment rate remained at the rock-bottom level of 3.9 percent, and wages grew the fastest they have in nine years.

“There’s no doubt that this is the best economy in quite a long time for American workers, who by a wide range of measures can find a job more easily than they have in a decade.”

Imagine that. Trump made a promise, and he’s actually delivered.

It’s hard for most folks in the media to deal with a president who actually operates that way.
