Democrats Whine That the Media Is Not Rescuing Their Spending Spree

Pelosi nervous from district election results

AMAC Exclusive – By Shane Harris

According to a CBS News poll released last week, just 10% of Americans say they know “a lot” about the contents of Biden’s spending plan, and 57% say they don’t know anything about the multi-trillion dollar proposal. Those results are hardly surprising given that a final version of the legislation does not yet exist, and even Congressional Democrats can’t agree on what should be included. However, instead of revamping their own messaging efforts around just what exactly is in the bill (or, perhaps more logically, questioning if the legislation is even any good to begin with) leading Democrats have suddenly turned on their most trusted ally of all – the media – and blamed them for not doing a better job of messaging their plan to the public.

Shortly after the release of the CBS poll, a reporter questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on if she thought Democrats needed “to do a better job at messaging” on the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package and asked, “Going forward, how do you sell this?” In response, Pelosi scolded the media representatives present, saying, “You all could do a better job of selling this, to be frank.”

After Pelosi was done lecturing, she added, “Whether [the American people] know it or not, they overwhelmingly support it [the legislation].” It was an astonishing statement from one of the most powerful people in the country. In effect, Pelosi doesn’t think it matters whether people consciously support the Democrat spending blowout; what matters is whether they subconsciously support it, and here Pelosi is saying she knows very well that the American people subconsciously support her bill. Once again, Pelosi is asking the public to “just trust her,” a request that is reminiscent of her infamous comment on Obamacare that “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Not to be outdone, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the lead architect of most of the spending plan, issued his own statement calling it “absurd” that so many people don’t know what’s in the bill, lambasting the press and saying that “the mainstream media has done an exceptionally poor job in covering what actually is in the legislation.” He further complained that there has been “very limited coverage as to what the provisions of the bill are.”

Mr. Sanders may have a point, although not the one he thinks. By and large, the liberal media has steered clear of discussing the specifics of the legislation. However, the media’s unwavering allegiance to the Democratic Party, and particularly the progressive movement, in recent years suggests that the nature of the coverage is no accident, much less some nefarious scheme to sink the spending plan.

On the contrary, everything the media has done thus far suggests that they are just as committed to passing the plan as any progressive Democrat in Congress. For starters, although it may not be as often or deceptive as Pelosi and Sanders want, many outlets have highlighted some of the seemingly popular provisions in the bill, such as two “free” years of community college and universal pre-K education. Thankfully for Democrats, what most mainstream outlets actually don’t report on is the true cost of such programs and the likely net negative effect on the economy.

Additionally, when the White House began making the ridiculous claim that the $3.5 trillion plan would actually cost “zero dollars,” the supposedly neutral “fact-checkers” quickly rushed to Biden’s aid, with the Washington Post only calling the claim “misleading,” and PolitiFact arguing that what Biden was actually talking about was the national debt, which the bill “could add zero to” as long as several unlikely economic events occur simultaneously.

The media have also parroted Democratic talking points on the bill in public polling questions, part of a thinly-veiled attempt to create the illusion of broad public support while also, as Pelosi asked, “selling” the legislation to respondents. For example, a Quinnipiac poll conducted July 27-August 2, which found that 62% of Americans supported the plan, framed the legislation by asking if people “support or oppose a $3.5 trillion spending bill on social programs such as child care, education, family tax breaks and expanding Medicare for seniors.” A Monmouth University poll that described the legislation as “a plan to expand access to healthcare and child care, and provide paid leave and college tuition support” found a nearly identical level of support at 63%.

For all of their flaws, the corporate media giants aren’t stupid. By and large, they hold far more radical views than the majority of Americans, and would love nothing more than to see Biden’s agenda passed. But they seem to understand what Biden, Pelosi, Sanders, and other Democrat leaders do not: Democrats don’t have a messaging problem, they have a substance problem.

In fact, mainstream media outlets have practically begged Democrats to give them something better to sell, or at least to do a better job of messaging themselves. Democratic strategist and former Clinton adviser James Carville, for example, recently chided Democrats on MSNBC, saying that “they didn’t get out in the country enough, they didn’t sell it enough.” New York Times op-ed columnist Thomas Friedman has also blasted Democrats for how “poorly” they’ve sold Biden’s agenda. It’s clear from such comments that corporate media voices and Democratic establishment types are tired of being dumped on by Democrat lawmakers for what they feel is an exceedingly difficult if not impossible task in selling Biden’s agenda to the public. They desperately want to convince the public to support the bill, but Democrats are giving them little to work with.

Which raises another important point – the media appears to understand better than elected Democrats that if people truly understood the full scope of the legislation, they would be shocked at just how involved Democrats want the federal government to be in the lives of ordinary Americans, and the plan would likely fail. Biden has already been forced to modify one proposal that would have required banks to report all transactions of $600 or more to the IRS after public backlash. Other provisions like making community college tuition-free for two years have also reportedly been axed. A pattern looks to be emerging where every specific measure in the legislation that makes headlines is opposed by broad swaths of the public – hardly a ringing endorsement for the overall bill.

It’s no wonder then that the liberal media is reluctant to report on the specifics of the bill any further. Every time they do, it becomes less popular. There thus appears to be a very simple roadmap for creating opposition to Biden’s plan: just tell people what’s in it.

It’s not that the media’s “not rescuing…” it’s that the media, some of it at least has a semblance of a moral compass and are not willing to toe the line for ol’ slo’ joe and his socialist cabinet, agenda. Other than that, the rest of the politicos and leftist media are all about destroying us!

The MSM (main stream media) and any other news platform is not supposed to be a propaganda source for any political party, nor push one political party over the other. Although that is what the MSM has become, and that has influenced the elections. Because of that the MSM and networks need to be reined in and have stiff fines for the one-sided BS they broadcast as news. If they cannot broadcast the truth, they should be taken off the air, and that would include most of the MSM, FB, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC etc. Don Lemon or Jim Acosta’s opinion is anything but the truth.
Many people lack the time to really follow the news and be able to make good assumptions on candidates and their campaign promises. Others just don’t want to hear all the BS, even though their is nothing more important than knowing who to vote for and why, and who not to vote for and why.
Walter Cronkite was a favorite newscaster because he reported the news, not opinion or what he wanted you to think. I never knew what party he favored, and that is how it is supposed to be.

Well, pelosi can chide the msm all she wants, but what she and her fellow congressmen should be doing is–putting it all out in the open–publish exactly what is in the bill. Which, of course. they aren’t going to because they know even the however many million now touted to have voted for biden will balk at what’s in it. As she was boarding a plane one day. she is on video saying SHE knows what the people want, even if the people don’t. GMAB!!! And, of course, her infamous-“you have to pass the bill to know what’s in it”–which would make one think even congressmen weren’t made aware of that portion that had even been written. And, of course, the rest couldn’t be read as they hadn’t included much beyond “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” which didn’t happen in millions of cases. If they are too ashamed of what’s in the bill to let us all know, it should never pass. There should be only one issue in this bill—infrastructure (which in no way covers pelosi’s SanFran park for $200M.) No pork for things like Kennedy Center, Smithsonian, planned parenthood as was in the first incentive bill. No money for things like gender studies in Pakistan. No pet projects covered–nothing for unions, or for family members who would benefit from some part of the bill. One thing that did impress me when obama was running for pres–he was going to get rid of pork in the bills. But, just like the doctor issue–nope, didn’t come to fruition. I think the bill should be read on cspan or some such network–all the way through–over and over. AND there should chances for people to ask to explanation and clarification. AND, there should be a way for citizens to protest some of the items–in addition to contacting their congressmen. As a possible plus–perhaps it would -encourage congress to address just one or two things–maybe have a bill of 100 pages instead of the thousands now. Would even be helpful for congressmen to actually read the bill in full.

Pelosi is the equivalent of a snake-oil salesman. She tries to convince others that everyone agrees with her disastrous bills subconsciously, if not consciously. She suckered them in with ACA in 2010 and assumes she can do again. One would hope House and Senate members have both memories and brains.

Government “Stimulus Bills”(What are they stimulating?) °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°It never ceases to make me MAD AS HELL when the government starts with “what are we going to do, or how much are we going to spend?”….. Instead of “Where in the CONSTITUTION does it give us THE AUTHORITY to do what we’re about to do / spend!” What not only makes me mad as hell, but never ceases to amaze AND sadden me is the American people gushing rhapsodic over whatever new power the governemnt has just SEIZED, or how much money the government has decided to “spend.”* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * So, the government has decided it needs  *ANOTHER* THREE TRILLION DOLLARS “pumped into our economy”…  In addition to the *TWO TRILLION DOLLARS* they’ve already spent! (most of which is going to THEIR pet projects… Including those measures that make voter fraud easier)???? MY question is simple…. Since the government doesn’t have *two freaking pennies* to rub together, where in the HELL do you think the money is coming from?! Don’t get me wrong…  In times of “National Emergencies” there are SOME things the Federal Government “might” be able to do easier LOGISTICALLY than the individual States (although I have my serious doubts about even that), but spending money is NOT one of them! How could they?!  It’s not THEIR money, and they couldn’t care less how much is wasted! For GODS SAKE people, every single dollar the federal government puts “into the economy,” MUST FIRST BE TAKEN *** OUT OF THE ECONOMY!!! *** *OR* they have to BORROW IT. Today our government has over 22 TRILLION DOLLARS of *actual* debt, and over 125 TRILLION DOLLARS of “unfunded liabilities” coming due in the next 10-15 years that the government HAS *NO* WAY TO PAY! (hence the term UNFUNDED!) By the way…  We are currently paying OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS *A DAY* just in INTEREST on that 22 TRILLION dollar debt! So every time the government talks about “stimulus” you MUST understand their definition! What they’re “stimulating” is THEIR ABILITY TO BE REELECTED! Every SINGLE DOLLAR they put into a “stimulus bill,” must first be TAKEN from a working American, American business both big AND small, or borrowed which adds to the debt! A debt that must be repaid…  Just NOT BY THEM! It must be repaid by the same people and businesses they’re STEALING THE REST OF THE “STIMULUS” FROM! Yes, the Democrats are the worst, but the Republicans have their faults as well. It’s only the fact that the Democrats ARE SO FREAKING BAD, that the Republicans are even remotely tolerable to me! They ALL think THEY know how to spend YOUR money better, And if they’re wrong, its NOT a big deal!  After all, it’s YOUR money they’ve just thrown away…  IT’S *YOURS*!

What???? I’m stunned. The media has long been the primary partisan message outlet and propaganda outlet for the Commiecrat DemocRats. Can it be that an increasing portion of the news media is starting to recognize that the DemocRats are driving the economy off into a deep financial crisis??? Maybe so, but that is in the face of the media standard of wanting controversy in the public goings-on … it sells better that way. In a strange way, the News Media feasts off of blood, rancor, hot controversy, and lawlessness … those topics attract more readers … and sell more advertising and subscriptions as a result. Many people think of the News Media as a watchful unofficial branch of government ….. it is not. News media makes more money off of rancor and disharmony than calmness and cooperation .. so you can figure which way they spin the news.

This is suppose to be a Constitutional Representative form of Government! What has happened to our Representation? No taxation without Representation. The media is NOT in office, NOT elected, NOT authorized to run things, NOT authorized to educate everyone or push propaganda down our throats. Legislature’s, which are composed of our Representatives are SUPPOSE to debate issues, do the will of the people that put them in office and then MAKE LAW! Only Legislatures Constitutional can make law. It seems we have gross crony capitalism or totalitarian fascism. We own the government buildings they work in and we pay their salaries. Conservatives get INVOLVED.

DC the redistribution of our confiscated tax money to stay in power and power. Useless politicians who apply fiscal discipline with their own money by not spending more than they earn and somehow that very discipline is meaningless with the the tax money confiscated by these corrupt, arrogant, pompous Democrats>.Hence, 30 trillion debt and climbing. A debt that can never be repaid!!
Says much about the character of these politicians who could give a rats rear of the legacy they will leave behind for their children and grandchildren. They live in the present moment of power and greed!

Biden more concerned about jamming his reckless spending rather bill than focusing on securing our border. A LOSER in the WH!!

NOTE: Not one mention in the bill to complete the wall>

It is not up to the media to support an agenda or sell an agenda. This is wrong. They are supposed to report the news and let us form our own opinions. By the way, they are doing a very poor job of reporting the news. This is the same kind of crap that they did by hiding information on Biden before the election. Why would anyone with any sense believe a word that comes from the liberal media? Now , the Dems are turning on the MSM? This would indicate to me a great falling apart of the long lived alliance between the MSM and the Democratic party. If the Dems lose media support, they are doomed. Maybe the MSM is trying to get that across to the Dems. I do not see that happening, though. The MSM will try to support this effort in some way. I am just waiting to see what happens.

Despite evidence to the contrary, there are a large number of intelligent democrats that would be appalled at what their party is trying to jam down our throats if the media was doing a better job. The more people that actually know what’s in the bill, the more people will fight against it.

The major problem, and real point, of this article, is how the general American public gets it’s “information”. The strongest arm of the government is the information sector. Very few people, and certainly not the general populace, actually know what is going on day to day in the congressional halls by any of the representatives, Dem, Repub or Ind. We rely on “the press”. And until this country returns to a “free” press, we can be lead around by the nose just as we frequently are now. So Nancy, Bernie and the rest of these disgusting people are right in their replies to a very compliant press. And the only way we can fight back is to stop patronizing the advertisers that appear in the pages of these unworthy to line a birdcage “newspapers” and buy advertising on “news” stations, both visual and audio. It always boils down to money (not power- money buys power. Just ask Soros). Take away financial support from spreading the lies, and the lies will die.

Most of us know the term “bait and switch” and this is just another example of how the dems play the game…..without providing a finished product, they sell it with rhetoric and empty promises, hype it and push it. And the media is their sales force….corrupted and beholding. Remember Obamacare…thousands of pages of words, unread, and unfinished, and demanded to be passed and “read it afterwards”…..There are many reasons these bills are not known fully….they are not fully completed and revealed. People don’t bother trying to read and discover what is in them, and the opposition (ie repubs./conservatives) don’t present them openly to the public. When a bill with several thousands of pages comes across the table, it’s part of the old sales mantra…”..dazzle them with your foot work, and baffle them with your b..ll sh..t. ” Bottom line here is that there is so much pork in these bills they drip lard, and the folks who come up with them are the worst example of an elected official there is…..and they seem to get away with the scam over and over again. The capacity to tack on all kinds of unrelated pork to any bill has got to be stopped. Originally, it was done to speed a process, past one bill with several others to get things done in shorter order….but it opened the door to corruption and scamming that is now rampant. Riders and amendments that do not pertain to the original bill should no longer be allowed. One look at this “infrastructure” bill and you see 3/4 of the items included have no connection whatsoever to the normal definition of infrastructure. So they redefine the term and open the door to any and all pork projects they can squeeze in….That’s how all of the bills that come across the table are fashioned…by both dems and repubs. shameful from both sides of the aisle. A process that has to be eliminated.

On purpose. They cannot reveal what is in it. Because its full of programs and items that will allow the executive branch to take over the economy in total, among other things.

Note they only mention what they TAKE OUT!

If the bills “price tag” was even ONE DOLLAR its too much given what they want to do.

I hope that all parties involved can stonewall this thing well into 2022 when it will no longer matter because it will be too close to an election to expose themselves. Democrats are slated to get a real drubbing and this certainly will make it worse when it will be foremost in the minds of the electorate. (unless the republicans pass it after all they are infected with progressives too.)

This now infamous quote by Pelosi should be known far & wide as it speaks volumes about the woman’s mindset, i.e. “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
That kind of reasoning equates to laying oneself down on the railroad tracks to see if the train rolling down those tracks will actually kill you…
The Biden plan is as hollow as his head is, nothing there, move on…Nothing good will come out of this for America…The Democrats know it, MSM knows it & all of them know that We The People know this…
You have to be in the shoes of a Democrat & the RINO’s as well as a good many Republicans to understand why they want this madness to pass without muster…It all but guarantees that fair & honest elections will be gone forevermore in America. Yes they squeezed in legislation allowing them to do precisely what they did in the 2020 US presidential election & the Georgia senatorial runoff election in all future US elections, in other words, a Democrat run nation in perpetuity as in game over for fair & honest elections with ” election integrity ” being a thing of the past…
This is just ” ( 1 ) aspect to this bill, very little actual spending on real infrastructure, i.e. roads, bridges, electric grid, etc…
In summary: Currently Joe Biden & by default & through her own actions, i.e. or lack thereof, both Joe & Ms. Harris’s heads are UNDER water in no less than ( 2 ) major national polls…
Very close to the entire nation as a whole, knows full well Joe Biden is NOT running the show here & furthermore, over 61% of all citizens, no matter what party, disapprove of Joe Biden’s actions as a so-called potus..
In conclusion: Let’s go Brandon! & F**K Joe Biden!

I think the CBS poll in this case is more accurate than most of their polls. Only about 7 to 10 percent of the public generally cares enough about what their government is doing to actually educate themselves about the issues on a regular basis. So that number is in-line with what would be expected. The 57 percent saying they know nothing about about the two spending bills is probably a bit on the low side from what I have seen in my area of the country. From what I have personally seen speaking with a lot of people, the percentage of people completely ignorant of the contents of either spending bill is closer to 75 percent than 57 percent. Many people still seem to have the attitude of “If it doesn’t directly impact me right now, I don’t care what Washington does.” People tend to go into the “How could this have happened” mode only AFTER disastrous legislation is passed and they start to feel the pain of what their apathy has allowed to happen. By then of course, it is too late to do anything about it and they are stuck with the consequences. Apathy and willful ignorance does have a cost.

I don’t expect the mainstream media to do an honest assessment of what is in either of the two spending bills currently being fashioned in Congress. Why on earth would they? The mainstream media has dropped all pretense of being an impartial source of pure news a long time ago. They openly function as the propaganda arm of the Democrat party and as such, they are NOT about to inform the general public about items that would serve to undermine the Democrat party in any way. They either lie, distort or simply bury stories that are counter to the agenda of the party they support. That is what propaganda arms are for.

It is up the general public to care enough about how their government and country runs to take the time to keep themselves informed on what is routinely going on in Washington, because ultimately it does all impact you whether you like it or not. There are a few decent domestic news organizations still scattered around the country. There are also a number of foreign news agencies that do quite a good job of reporting news related to the United States. From there, it is up to the individual to research items further on their own, as the information is still out there. Educate yourselves, because you will be stuck with the consequences of whatever finally happens in Washington. So you need to be prepared. Be proactive rather than reactive.

Stop expecting to plop yourself in front of the boob tube and expect to be spoon fed all the news you need to know about in 30 to 60 minutes a night. That model died out over 20 years ago, if not longer. Now all you receive in your spoon feeding is your nightly dose of Democrat propaganda talking points. Actual news of real importance will never be provided.
