It’s a real dilemma for Our Failed Mainstream Media: On the one hand, their Republican masters want to keep pushing the story that President Biden has broken the economy, and we’re all gonna starve if the GOP isn’t reinstalled in 2022 at the latest.
On the other hand, the big-box retail businesses that buy holiday-season advertising want their viewers to get out those credit cards and BUY SHOP BUY.
What are a bunch of lazy, overpaid carnival barkers supposed to dooo?!?

Makes sense. If you’re worried about inflation getting worse, and read those headlines about the Most Expensive Christmas etc, you’re running that credit card until it gives off sparks. https://t.co/tYbdDDQgDe
