With a Democrat in the White House the media has been getting another chance to explain the upside to bad economic news.

Having previously explained why President Biden is so “at ease” during hectic times, Politico has now been spotting pointing out the upside of slower wage growth during high inflation:

Hey, that water isn’t going to carry itself!

You’ve got to love the “here’s why something not good is for the best in the long term” aspect of #journalism when a Democrat is in office.

Politico would have taken the “silver lining” approach if Trump were still in office, right?

And yet they wonder why trust in the media gets lower by the day.
