Headlines - The Economy Grew and We're Winning the War

The US economy grew by 1.9% in the last quarter. That means we are not, as much as Democrats and the MSM may wish for it, in a recession. There is also news today that US deaths in Iraq are down to the lowest point since the invasion, and troop tours in Iraq will be cut to 12 months.

It sounds like great news to me so I thought I'd check the websites of ABC, CNN, MSNBC and CBS to see if they had these stories as their top headlines. The answer is no, no, sort of and no. MSNBC had the troop tour story. The rest chose their right to remain silent. But they did share the news of Exxon's big profit and Boston trading Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers.

The media and the Dems have done whatever they can do to ruin the economy and lose the war. When their efforts fail they won't even report the news. Go figure.

Update: In all fairness, ABC News did mention the story about the decline in US casualties in Iraq during their 6:30 broadcast, but not until after they reported on Exxon Mobil's record profit.

Later Fox News reported that for every dollar in profit Exxon Mobil has earned, they have paid three dollars in taxes, so for the last quarter Exxon Mobil paid a record $32 BILLION dollars in taxes! But Obama wants more.
