Never Fake. Always Real. You may not print fake news, Gazette, but get real. On Thursday, on Page 7B, just above the classifieds, you printed a small article, "Rally lifts Dow above 26,000." If this were the Obama or Clinton presidency, you'd have that on the front page in 6-inch letters. That's a huge milestone.
For eight years, the Obama administration told us 0.5 percent or 1 percent GDP was the new normal. Unemployment would go up. Food stamps would increase. In less than one year, President Trump has the economy booming and unemployment decreasing. The sad part is the media is trying to hide it like The Gazette is doing. Yet people are living it and can see their 401K portfolios growing. More than 200 companies who've had their tax burden decreased from 35 percent to 21 percent are taking the money they would have given to the government, and they're handing out bonuses and pay raises. Employees will start taking home bigger pay checks in February because of less federal taxes.
Even Democratic Apple admits its expansion and bonuses are driven in part by tax reform. That article didn't see much of the light off day, either, hidden on Page 6B. That's front page news also.
Gazette, you owe your readership the real story. Quit glossing over these major events. Point out that no Democrats voted for tax reform. Hatred of the president is not going to win Democrats any votes. Neither will their "no" votes on tax reform.
