Supercut: Media Repeatedly Claimed Wages Would Not Rise After Tax Cuts
ST. LOUIS —
Friday morning on NBC, the hosts of the Today Show were either confused by tax reform (or pretending to be confused) when fellow NBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle admitted that most Americans would see more money in their paychecks soon as a result of tax cuts.
The confusion (or act of confusion) is probably because in the weeks leading up to the passing of tax reform, Ruhle and most of the mainstream media's anchors and commentators relentlessly claimed that companies would NOT raise wages, and that the tax cuts in the reform package were to benefit only the richest Americans.
Since tax reform has been passed, more than 80 companies have announced investment into their employees through bonuses, wage increases, benefits, even NEW jobs. Fiat Chrysler announced Friday that because of tax reform, it's investing $1 Billion to bring manufacturing jobs back the U.S. from Mexico.
Now, if you only watch the mainstream news media for your information, you would probably believe that too. However, thanks to more independent news sources found mostly online like FreeBeacon.com, people are able to get a better idea of the truth, and how a lot of the mainstream media today is either misinformed or purposefully deceptive in its reporting.
Here's a good example of that: A Social Media Editor at FreeBeacon made a nice little 2 minute+ video supercut. It shows the media claiming that there is "no way" companies would raise wages, and that there is "no evidence in history" that tax cuts bring higher wages and more jobs...and each claim is followed by a report announcing a company giving bonuses, raising wages, or creating new jobs.
