Has anyone, or everyone, noticed that it’s the official policy of corporate media to label any information at odds with the narrative of the ruling party as a “conspiracy theory?” Case in point:
Trump Jr. also took some time Thursday and Friday to promote a widely spread theory about the reported hate crime attack against “Empire” actor and LGBTQ activist Jussie Smollett. Trump Jr. liked and retweeted posts by people who have suggested that the reported attack early Tuesday in Chicago could be a left-wing hoax, perpetrated by a Hollywood celebrity who has been outspoken in his opposition to Trump’s presidency.
I have some defenders of the corporate media claim that they were taken in because it was “so hard to believe a successful actor would do such a thing.” Because, apparently, it’s absolutely unheard of for actors to engage in stunts in order to get publicity.
Speaking of the corporate media, it’s fascinating that just last week, a story broke about how the Biden White House was reaching out to its media allies to put a more positive spin on the dreadful Biden economy. And wouldn’t you know, NBC’s Joe Scarborough and Jim Cramer were happy to oblige.
“Based on the data, President Biden and the Democratic Congress are set to preside over the strongest two-year performance on growth, jobs, and income in decades.” https://t.co/TAEKAGeQvz

CNBC’s Jim Cramer: “Today we have the strongest economy, perhaps, I’ve ever seen.”
