More State Media Lies

Posted by revkharma on August 5, 2009

Elkhart, Indiana has been the major manufacturing site for Motor homes and RV’s for years. This has put the industry in the cross hairs of the environmental movement and the leftists in government for a long time.  We see how the drive to demonize auto industry has slammed the industrial base in Elkhart.  Shortly after inauguration, President Obama visited Elkhart, promising to help.  Subsequently he took over the auto industry, and further bashed the industry, putting a spike into the heart of the employment base in good old Elkhart.

Today Obama returned to Elkhart, hoping to puff up his economic plan in front of a friendly crowd. With a fawning supine media present he got most of what he hoped for. Driving home from work today, I heard the report from  taxpayer funded NPR  ( should be called National Propaganda Reporting). First the on air reporter states that the local economy has been hurt, Obama’s economic plan has produced only ‘sluggish job growth’. Immediately after, they stated that “unemployment has increased 1.6%.” Even while on air reporters were shading the numbers to make Obama look good, the following was reported on NPR’s own website:

Despite the positive jobs creation message, the day’s economic picture was mixed with one survey by a business services firm showing job losses slowed in July, while another suggested that there are more layoffs to come.

The labor market shrank by an estimated 371,000 jobs in July according to a report by ADP Employer Services.

and:

But another survey by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas was more ominous. That survey found a 30 percent jump in planned layoffs

Further in the report, we hear from a local, who tells of being laid off for seven months. Now he’s coming back to work. He says, of Obama, I guess he’s doing something right, cause now I have a job.  The NPR report glowing uses this as a praiseworthy example of the good things from Obama’s plan. Unfortunately it is not President Obama that man needs to thank for his job. It seems the parent company of his employer has gotten a multimillion dollar federal grant to subsidize its foray into manufacturing electric trucks.  So it is tax money that has employed this man. That means he should call and thank me, and you, and anyone else who works and pays taxes. This is not employment, it is simply another form of welfare. $39 million worth of welfare in this case. Obama is taking money from every working American  across the nation and sending it to Elkhart.

Yet somehow this is reported as ‘Job growth’ on the Federally funded radio station. Somehow an ‘ uptick of 1.6% in unemployment is reported as ‘sluggish job growth’.

President Obama is moving steadily toward a system every bit as repressive and controlled as that run by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.  NPR is probably the worst offender in the media, and they are  supported by federal tax dollars. This is unquestionably government propaganda. The privately owned networks are simply going along to ensure they get their cut of the pie.  The established politicians are doing all they can to cement their place in power regardless of which party holds majorities in Congress. We are fast moving away from the ideal of representative government and establishing a system of power brokered by barons and those with inherited wealth. Without direct pressure from every voting, taxpaying citizen we are on the way to surrendering the republic bequeathed to us by the founders of the nation.
