The cable news and business networks all run with the PR video of Trump walking around a Carrier plant, with the exception of Bloomberg TV who saw the video for what it was, non-news propaganda.
David Gura of Bloomberg tweeted:
On @BloombergTV, we're not showing Donald Trump walking around a Carrier plant. You're welcome.

Good for Bloomberg TV. The video of Trump touring the Carrier plant, like he accomplished something besides giving away $7 million in exchange for 800 jobs, is not news. The problem remains that cable news continues to lap up Trump propaganda like a starving dog.
Anyone who expects the corporate media to hold Trump accountable is going to very disappointed. The incoming administration’s propaganda effort is well under way, and the cable news networks are showing that they are going to continue to disgrace our country by behaving like Trump state-run media.
