Fake News: The Media Cannot “Cause” Recessions As Trump Claims

The president took to Twitter this morning to make a claim that doesn’t hold any water about the economy and the media. At a time when a serious recession inches closer and closer, political posturing should take a back seat. The Federal Reserve is the culprit. It creates the bubbles and the unavoidable busts.

Trump is a VERY dangerous man! The president of the United States blaming media for a recession? We have reached insanity in political discourse.

Looks like neither will big business foreign governments and investors since there's a close watch on the usual culprits.

Bullshit. They push the negative narrative, get caught lying their ass off all the time. What's dangerous is they are the only profession to have constitutional protection. And it isn't so they can lie to us.
We need Trump to remove broadcast licience from any company that is pushing fake news. Let the free market sort it out. I want real journalism not this script reading Ken & Barbie shitshow. #NoMoreFakeNews

The media is not the ONLY factor, but it absolutely can play a role in causing economic swings that can distort the market. The very fact that the media does not tell the American people the truth, and covers up for the dangers, about the Federal Reserve is part of the reason the Federal Reserve is able to do the damage it does. If someone commits a murder and second person lies to cover for the murderer, the liar is just as culpable for the act of murder as the person taking the shot, and it could be possible to… Read more »

The target of the MSM CNN PBS Mockingbird Press etc. Mass Social Media Matrix is a programmable 'trance state' of mind in its viewing public. Depth Psychological Subliminal Advertising and Marketing setting a mind controllable mindset with scripted opinions which then manifests whatever is being promoted by these [DS] manipulators. So yes a sense that there is a recession is an implanted idea as money is an idea backed by confidence in whatever is being suggested by these mass media controllers. Not that there isn't a physical (or fiscal) reality but the way it is being interpreted and dealt with… Read more »

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I had faith in Trump but I'm beginning to wonder wtf is going on.
Sanctions on China. Sanctions on Iran. Buying Iceland. Cancelling the whole Denmark visit … & now this.
Will somebody, please, take his Twitter account off him because he's acting like a teenage boy, in his mother's basement, who can't get his own way … & NOT like a World Statesman. He is fast becoming a laughingstock & in danger of handing 2020 to the Democrats. smh 🙁

Uh this is one thing that Trump is right on. All the media has to do is constantly spread doom and gloom and people won't spend then you get a recession. We're totally screwed either way so what's it matter. Just get yourself into a good position.

Do away with parties. A candidate is a candidate for all the people free and protected from any pier pressure in the form of a “Party”( Democrat, Republican.. others ). As a voter I don’t want to be labeled to a party, I am an American and I have no (American )opponent within and strive for “justice for all”

The Media can be a factor in the cause of a Recession, by causing consumer/stock anxiety, presenting false information, etc. The Fed is another factor. But realistically, Trump is trying to head off the blame for the recession by pinning it on another group. If it were 2020, near the election, when it happened, he would say "they're concerned I won't win" and move on. Here, just out of an election, he has to ensure that no one blames him. Now, the POTUS will always be blamed. Regardless of if it's his fault or not. Now, I agree the Media… Read more »

it is great when the media tells the truth… it's overdue…the media could play a role in mitigating the impending financial crisis if it listens and learns from Dr. Paul and the Ron Paul Liberty Report. There are several other amazing economists from the Austrian school that have been warning of the impending crisis as well. I'd be really discouraged if we didn't have Dr. Paul, correctly pointing the finger to the Fed as the real culprit as a facilitator financing war, big government and to the many structural and political problems that the country has.

Recessions provide the ruling elite with a buying opportunity. The roller coaster economy is one of the reasons why they are rich and most of us, not so rich.

The Nature Communications study was conducted by a team of Chinese and European scientists. The rate of heat-related deaths between 1986 and 2005 in China was 32 for every million people, the study found. This rate will more than double – to 67 deaths per million – between 2060 and 2099 if the average increase in global temperatures is 1.5C. But with a rise of 2C, the death rate could rise to 81 per million. Researchers compared the results to similar studies conducted in the US and found that the mortality rate in China urban centres had been higher than… Read more »

The media can not cause a recession. Respectfully disagree, yes they can. If the sheeple listen to the idiots on the idiot box, yes it will scare the sheep enough to not spend any money, causing a disturbance in the economy.
