New Details Emerge of the Nancy Pelosi Big Pay-Off

Viewers haven’t been watching the news because they believe differently, Pelosi. They see a different viewpoint in another place so they go there. If this gets passed, the news media as we know it has no reason to report anything other than sunshine and flowers for you. News has been biased for many years, Americans now see it blatantly. It makes sense that if people aren’t watching something, it’s time to go.

Pelosi paying her friends

That helped to get Trump out of office. She despised him and wouldn’t talk to him for two years. So she figured what better way to reward and encourage those who helped by paying them to continue?

She slipped a tax exemption for them to the tune of $50,000 per journalist into the Build Back Better program. Arizona Democrat Rep. Anne Kirkpatrick helped put this together to help keep them afloat. “Local journalism is a bedrock pillar of communities across the United States. Unfortunately, journalistic endeavors throughout the country face major economic struggles that put the future of many publications in serious jeopardy.” If you’re going to pay news media you can guarantee never getting the truth. If the truth was reported, there would be no need for this. We’d still be listening and watching.

Another Pelosi tax giveaway

That will likely never go away. It will cost us $1.6 billion. It would give “local news” a quarterly tax credit equal to 50% of what a journalist is paid up to $12,500 per quarter. Democrats would let this expire after five years, long enough to make sure Biden gets a full two terms.

Trump tried to put a leash on the media but Republicans refused. The media can and will be utilized for propaganda. It shut down free speech in 2020, that will continue. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson remarked, “Not only is this proposal a grotesque waste of taxpayer money, it would be a dangerous precedent of government collusion with the media. Biden’s collusion with the press has already caused enough damage to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Freedom of the press does not contemplate government funding of it.”

Author Phil Kerpen brought the Pelosi tax giveaway to light

“Pelosi’s latest version of the Biden Budget Buster exempts news organizations with up to 1,500 employees from the employer side of the payroll tax,” he noted. Any “local newspaper publisher” that serves “the needs of a regional or local community and who employs no more than 750 employees” would be able to do this.

Predictably, The Lenfest Institute for Journalism CEO Jim Friedlich said it’s nothing, just a drop in the bucket. They can scream “lies!” longer. “It’s a relatively inexpensive proposal — less than 0.1% of the total legislation — but it is the only provision before Congress that addresses the disinformation and misinformation now threatening to destroy our democracy. Absent a strong press, local news deserts are being filled by harmful disinformation, partisan hyperbole, and unverified, often bogus, social media posts. Without accurate, independent news and information, families cannot make informed decisions about their health or education, communities cannot hold government accountable, and democracy itself comes under dire threat.”

University of Oregon School of Journalism Dean Juan-Carlos Molleda is also understandably looking forward to the Pelosi giveaway,  “This is essential because local news is collapsing around the country. Because the internet has destroyed local news business models, there has been a 60% drop in the number of reporters since 2000. Thousands of communities have no newspapers or ‘ghost newspapers’ that barely cover communities.” The internet has given Americans choice, Mr. Molleda. We didn’t choose you.
