President Donald Trump was left an economy in shambles. Former President Barack Obama did all he could to grind business to a halt in the United States — and for years, unemployment numbers were through the roof while healthcare costs also sky rocketed.
Now? Since Trump took over, it’s a whole new ballgame.

Monday, the stock market reached another all-time high, and job creation is through the roof. For the year, the S&P 500 is up 214.63 points, or 9.6 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 1,766.39 points, or 8.9 percent. The Nasdaq is up 855.90 points, or 15.9 percent. And the Russell 2000 is up 60.95 points, or 4.5 percent.
You wouldn’t know it by going to the mainstream media, however.
The liberal journalists are too busy on their anti-Trump witch hunt to focus on good news.
In fact, these days it would barely be surprising if The New York Times found a new “anonymous source” that blamed the stock market rise on Russian hackers.
In the face of a roaring economy and Americans getting back to work, lets take CNN’s homepage as an example. Highlighted are stories attacking Trump’s White House —
For those keeping track at home: Ten of CNN’s 19 top stories on their front page as of Tuesday afternoon are an attack on the Trump administration.
There’s zero mention that, under Trump, American taxpayers are enjoying the biggest bull economy in history.

If that’s not a witch hunt, what is?
There’s a reason behind this, of course.
It’s not that the mainstream media is simply ignoring the rapid economic growth happening across the country. It’s that the liberal media is scared to talk about it.
After all, since the inauguration, the liberal media and establishment politicians have pulled out all the stops to take down Trump. Day after day, the White House is under siege over imaginary Russian connections and other whacko leftist conspiracies.
Still, Trump’s approval ratings are strong — well above the average that Obama enjoyed throughout his presidency, and better than former President Bill Clinton at this time in his presidency.
It’s no wonder the liberal media is scared to talk about the biggest story in the country.
If their viewers realize the sky isn’t falling, they might tune out.
Or, worse for liberals, these viewers might even start listening to the president — and start questioning the media’s motivation.
