Doubt AP Would make the down economy sound rosier if W were still president

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.

  1. Turns out that story about Congress buying itself three luxury jets was completely and totally false.

    It’s actually eight jets.

    Can you imagine how the MSM would treat a Republican Congress that bought itself eight luxury jets in the middle of a recession?

  2. It’s OK when Democrats use luxury jets because they use them to attend energy conservation summits.

  3. And it’s only gotten worse since your post … Can’t count the number of times the MSM has asked the questions, “Is the recession over?” or “Is the economy recovering?” Any uptick from a horrifically depressed previous number is a sign from God that things are better, that we’re soon to be wallowing in cash, whereas, before, any uptick was considered an anomaly (if it was mentioned at all, which was unlikely).
