Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision. –Unknown
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm, humor, and bluntness.
This week’s topics include Jeopardy, unemployment, taxes & corporations, Trump’s job approval, Mueller report, NFL schedules, Josh Huestis, Columbine High School, Madonna, and much more!
The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it. ― George Orwell
If you watched cable news Sunday afternoon, you saw some very different opinions when Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the Mueller report to key members of Congress.
Fox News was saying the summary was historical and basically cheering about it, while MSNBC was saying there needs to be a full release of the Mueller report and some of their people were almost crying. As for CNN, Wolf Blitzer took the helm and directed coverage that was pretty vanilla.
That’s cable news in 2019.
Those who lean to the right are cheering about Barr’s summary and saying that President Trump is exonerated. Those on the left are saying that the full report needs to be made public and that there will be more hearings in Congress and that Trump is not exonerated.
