OMG, George Soros would be proud.

***UPDATE: ABC News changed their headline. Somehow they’ve made it even more dishonest:
David Stockman Criticizes Obama’s Jobs Plan, Other Economists Cheer
Does this sound like a cheer from one of their non-Stockman economists?
“So this is an incomplete proposal.”
However, Swagel said the tax cuts on wages and on investment would be helpful. Swagel said he is waiting to see further details[.]
The good news is that Jake Tapper’s broadcast report pretty much stuck to the basic facts. Jake’s a gem. If the MSM was made up of Jake Tappers, there would be no Big Journalism.
Sometimes Obama’s media Palace Guards get in the Tank and leave a mark, and sometimes they look like Michael Dukakis.
Here’s a an example of the latter, an utterly shames ABC News headline:
My guess is that some editor watered this down from the originally submitted, ”Obama Could Save the World If Not For Those Goddamn Republicans.”
But even more laughable than the headline is the fact that ABC’s own story doesn’t support it. Naturally, you have to read deeper into the piece for the full skinny, but here are a couple of samples found at the bottom of page 1 through page 2:
David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan, was skeptical of the plan. “This should scare the living daylights out of investors–it’s just more Keynesian poison,” Stockman said. “Obama lectured us about the simple math, but the part of that he still doesn’t get is that Uncle Sam is broke, and that we can’t afford one more dime for his stimulus 6.0 plan.”
But-but-but the headline told me “Economists Support President’s Job Proposals, not “Some Economists Support President’s Job Proposals.”
But wait, there’s more:

Media BIAS anyone?
There’s a good chance that the GBTV billboard in New York City will make more than a few liberals upset, but who cares? Glenn warned that progressives would be wishing for the days when he was only on at 5pm…and now they might be seeing their worst nightmares come true. But for anyone who wants to check out Glenn’s new billboard, you can head over to 49th Street and 7th Ave in Manhattan – conveniently located near the M&M store!
