    There are few creatures on God’s green Earth as stupid as a cable TV interviewer.

    This one wanted his guest to say: the President tried to jawbone the executives into a bunch of climate initiatives we don’t want. The guest did not say that at all. Then the interviewer 𝘴𝘢𝘪𝘥 𝘪𝘵 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘦𝘳. But she still wasn’t having any of it.

    I have trouble sitting still watching cable TV news.This is typical.

      What you’re seeing is the biases of that particular reporter coming out in the questions they ask. If you listen closely, it’s even in the inflection in the actual wording – note how he says ‘lower inflation’ in the beginning with a sarcastic intonation.

      Unfortunately, it’s an example why so many are turned off by mainstream media these days. It’s no longer a ‘just report the facts’ platform, but a ‘tell the audience what to think’ platform, and it’s invaded all channels – liberal, moderate, and conservative. The switch has eroded faith in mainstream news, and it’s forced people to seek out alternatives, many of which are far more untrustworthy.

        I see the inverse problem: Too much of the mainstream media just report statements and counter-statements that politicians and activists make without fact-checking or introducing any sense of right, wrong or pure BS. (I swear if NPR or CNN had reported on Kristallnacht, they would include talking points from officials from the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei.)
