Media Lying About Economy

It is about time the McCain campaign set the record straight.  If you haven’t read today’s Bloomberg you need to check out McCain adviser Kevin Hassett of the American Enterprise Institute’s column calling out the press for “politically motivated pessimism”.  According to Hassett:

The bias has an easy explanation. Yale University economist Ray Fair has shown that a weak economy hurts the incumbent party. If a Democratic-leaning press can convince everyone that the economy is in recession, then it can influence the election.

Truer words have never been spoken.  What the left wing biased mainstream media is doing is acting like gas is way overpriced at $4.25 per gallon or that the recent 5.5 percent unemployment rate is bad.  They love acting like there’s a mortgage crisis, but all America really needs is a little bit of gumption and hardwork.   I can tell you that the economy is doing great thanks to the Bush tax cuts and this is coming from a guy who only gets 9 miles a gallon.  Don’t let the media tell you otherwise.  In the words of the immortal Bobby McPherin, “Don’t worry be happy.”
