Yes, Virginia, There IS Media Bias

Bloomberg is a reliably Lefty news source, so I read it every day.  Gives you an idea of the "thought" process the Lefty media (yes, I repeat myself) uses.

Here's a great example.

General Motors Co. will fire as many as 1,500 workers at the end of June at the Ohio factory building the Chevrolet Cruze compact car, undercutting President Donald Trump’s bombast about bringing back auto jobs....

The snide little 7th-grader-level remark about Trump has nothing whatsoever to do with the Lordstown plant's layoffs.  (And by the way, a layoff is not a "firing."  Not with the UAW's contract it ain't.)

Here's the reality:

...GM’s plans for its Ohio factory are the result of American consumers snubbing cars in favor of crossovers. Cruze sales plunged 26 percent in the first three months of the year to less than 40,000 units and slipped 2.2 percent last year....

Trump has motivated the automotives to move jobs into the USA.  It's not Trump's problem that nobody wants to purchase sedans these days.   What Bloomberg spewed is--at best--half-truth.

End of today's Media Bias lesson.
