I literally LMFAO when I saw this headline and it's subheadline.
Head =======Bankruptcy filings hit 18-year low===========
Sub ======But experts bet that bankruptcies will rebound after mortgage industry fallout and greater use of credit by consumers.======
LOL!!! There it is. I'd like to know just who these 'experts' are that CNN is quoting. Are these the same experts who keep getting surprised month after month, like clockwork, when the economy turns in better than expected results?(which BTW, I haven't seen that one in a while but there was a good 3 year or so stretch where it was common in liberal reporting)
But go ahead and read the article and you'll find out the reason for CNN's b-b-b-b-b-but.
=============So far the law appears to be working as intended by lawmakers.===========
Ah hah! No wonder CNN was quick to put a b-b-b-but in the subheadline. Gotta talk this thing down!
But let's continue to pick apart CNN's propaganda article here. Take for example this paragraph and next line:
=======Congress enacted the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act in 2005 in an effort to prevent consumers from abusing the bankruptcy system by clearing all their debts when they might have the ability to repay at least some of them.
So far the law appears to be working as intended by lawmakers.=========
So look at that, CNN wishes to credit *CONGRESS* for this 'working' enactment. But wait a second. Does anyone here remember?
Yes, for those of you who have forgotten this was Bush's bankruptcy bill. I'm not surprised that it's not Bush's bill anymore, at least not in the eyes of the liberal journalists at CNN.
Isn't it amazing that *NOW* that the bill is working, that the words "bush" and or "president" do not appear anywhere in the article? Funny how CNN leaves that part out now. But let me be straight forward here. CNN is technically not lying. No no, they're just not being totally honest. It's a lie by omission.
One of these days, CNN will lose the priviledge to have it both ways. I hope that day is soon.
For CNN, when something good happens, it's not bush's fault. But when something bad happens, *that's* bush's fault. BTW, did you see the last poll numbers? *chuckles*
