Nets Repeat Biden’s Lie Today’s Inflation Numbers Are ‘Out of Date’

Political News

Like the Democrat Party propagandists that they are, the three evening news networks came out swinging in defense of Joe Biden’s preposterous excuses for Wednesday’s disastrous inflation numbers which saw prices skyrocket 9.1 percent over the past year. 

Instead of correcting the President and informing their viewers, ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News decided to continue their tradition of being the official Democrat Party stenographers. 

Proving once again what a superficial and unserious network ABC is, anchor David Muir led Wednesday’s World News Tonight broadcast with the storm that hit Virginia and Maryland. Which is irrelevant to anyone who doesn’t live in the area. 

After that, Muir went to the inflation story: “The consumer price index, 9.1 percent higher than a year ago. A nearly 41-year high now, driven of course by those record gas prices. The typical American household spent $493 more in June to buy the same goods and services than they did a year ago.”

Muir then regurgitated Biden’s excuse that the inflation numbers that came out hours ago were “out of date”: “President Biden hearing the news as he arrived in Israel calling inflation, quote, unacceptably high. But also pointing to what he called quote out-of-date numbers because he says gas prices have been slowly coming back down for weeks.” 

Later on in the segment, correspondent Victor Oquendo got his turn to run interference for the Biden regime’s disastrous economic policies claiming “the Biden administration who have made tackling inflation a top priority — called today’s report unacceptably high, but also out of date.”

On CBS Evening News, correspondent Nancy Chen kicked off the Biden excuse tour for her network claiming “President Biden said in a statement that June’s inflation numbers were unacceptably high and were out of date given the recent drop in gas prices.”

Meanwhile, on NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt kicked off his coverage of the inflation numbers by reporting “President Biden calling the numbers unacceptably high but also out of date, noting they do not fully reflect recent declines in gas prices.” 

All three networks refused to call out Biden for his excuses and failed to inform viewers that economists widely blame Biden’s reckless government spending for the nearly 41-year-high inflation American consumers are suffering through. 

The three networks’ stenography for the Biden administration was made possible by Captial One on ABC, Angi on CBS, and Liberty Mutual on NBC. Their information is linked.

NANCY CHEN: President Biden said in a statement that June’s inflation numbers were unacceptably high and were out of date given the recent drop in gas prices. The average cost of a gallon of gasoline peaked at about $5 last month. This week it’s nearly 40 cents lower. With today’s higher than anticipated numbers, the Federal Reserve is expected to continue its assault on inflation. We could see another three-quarter point increase later this month, but that comes with risks.

LESTER HOLT: President Biden calling the numbers unacceptably high but also out of date, noting they do not fully reflect recent declines in gas prices. Still, it spells a gut check moment for the Fed as it weighs more interest rate hikes, sure to hit home for American borrowers and potentially tipping the economy into a recession.
