The Biden White House‚Äôs attempt to put all the blame on Vladimir Putin for gas price increases and inflation seems to be paying dividends when it comes to the media parroting the talking point. ABC News this week helped show how the media just picks up Dem narratives and runs with them:
"Putin's price hike" will be borne by American consumers. https://t.co/u85agBu06n

Never let it be said that the MSM won‚Äôt help out the Dems when it comes to their preferred narrative.
Wow, state media really pushing this narrative hard to covernfor Bidens gas prices and inflation.

The story acknowledges that ‚ÄúPutin‚Äôs price hike‚ÄĚ is how Biden has labeled it, so ABC News might earn a few state media points for using the term in the title:
‚ÄúPutin‚Äôs price hike,‚ÄĚ as the president labeled it, will be borne by American consumers. It‚Äôs even possible that, with global prices rising and other markets available, President Vladimir Putin‚Äôs Russia actually will make more from the same product than if U.S. imports were to continue.
The Biden White House can never say they don‚Äôt get plenty of water-carrying assistance from the mainstream media.
North Korea‚Äôs state-run media isn‚Äôt this obvious. https://t.co/WHbjnOeo3E

That would be a more honest way to report the story, which is why we don‚Äôt see it very much from the MSM.
