We're Not In Recession? ABC Finds It Hard to Swallow

Facts are stubborn things, but not as stubborn as ABC in describing our current economy as in "recession." The day before the government revised second quarter economic growth up to 3.3 percent, Good Morning America's food segment on Wednesday morning carried the graphic "Recession Recipes" as co-host Robin Roberts and weatherman Sam Champion chewed on chuck with chef Sara Moulton. (The R word was never used by the noshing news staff, just on screen.)

Scott Whitlock noted ABC's insistent "Recession Rescue" coverage earlier in our non-recession.
