The inflation rate is at a new four-decade high, hitting 7.9 percent in February.

CNBC’s Rick Santelli detailed what the February numbers show:

That’s a big story, right? Well, not for everybody apparently. According to Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck, only one of three network morning shows covered the story.

Two of the three network morning shows must not have figured out a way to spin that news in Biden’s favor, so they just skipped the story.

Remember when the Biden administration was dismissing rising inflation as “transitory”? Good times.



Biden economic adviser assigns blame for what inflation is ‘all driven by’ (and sets off BS detectors everywhere)

‘Enemy of the people’: CBS News says the U.S. ‘has been hit with increased gas prices, inflation, and supply-chain issues due to the Ukraine crisis’

‘Love this parody account’! The Democrats’ blame-shifting tweet on inflation is next-level gaslighting

Off to the races: It’s looking like that ‘transitory’ inflation isn’t going anywhere … except way, way up
