As I read their latest headline, I recalled all the gloomy articles on the economy when, during the better half of the Bush Administration (before the election o a Democratic Congress), businesses were expanding and creating jobs. And in those dark and difficult days, the media tried to pooh-pooh the economy.
Today, however, with a bold new leader in the White House, a man with vision and charisma and lacking an (R) after his name, the lede is fewer job losses expected, with “reporting” that focuses more on forecasts of an imminent recovery than on the details of the continuing downturn. Back then, it was forecasts of an imminent downturn.
It took the election of a Democratic Congress to make that imminent downturn real.
Guess that glow cast by Obama’s presences furthers the desperate seeking of silver linings.
