Last July 2018, President Trump established the president’s National Council for the American Worker that launched the Pledge to America’s Workers. This program signed on more than 20 companies and business groups that committed to hire or train more than 3.8 million workers over the next five years.

One year later, over 300 companies and organizations have joined the pledge to bring the total to over 12 million new training opportunities for students and workers.

This is great news for our workers. Why is there never any reporting of good news by our news media? All they do is denigrate our president. If we want REAL news, we have to search high and low for it.

"Why is there never any reporting of good news by our news media?" - Because the media is a hate filled left wing propaganda machine determined to drive the country into socialism. They want no middle class. Drive everyone to the bottom with no chance to achieve success in life. The saddest thing about it is that you cannot have a conversation. They will not listen to reason.

If you libs would just whistle and not talk that would be great!

Shouldn't you be praying to Dump right now and not posting on the P&D? He is the self appointed "Chosen one", after all.

Thank you, Iman, and Ms. Hochstein. Many of us find it hard to understand why we no longer have news reports.........just opinion reports. It would be so good to have national news reported (factually and without bias); then to an Editorial page making it clear that what is being said is opinion/personal interpretation/or "reporting" from a particular left or right wing source. Freedom of the press and Freedom of speech are vital. But the obligation of the press used to be to confine itself to reporting the NEWS, both good and bad, and not to opinion unless it is so identified on an editorial page. And you are so right, Iman, no conversation seems to be allowed any longer. Insulting "whistiling, eye rolling emoticons" instead? Really?

I'm sorry that you feel this way, Kate. I think if you would like to lay the blame about the lack of news and civility in news you could start with right-wing talk radio of the 80s (see Rush Limbaugh) and advance up to Faux News during the Obama years and present. It's all scare tactics and judging by Iman's post it working. So, don't mind the whistle. I will do it with all coo-coo for CocoPuffs comments.[crying][crying]

There were more jobs created under Obama's last two years than Dump's first two. Fact! The labor market has been steadily rising since 2010. Fact! Dump is going to single-handed destroy all economic advancement made in the last 10 years due to his completely stupid tariffs and help the rich get richer economic policies. Facts don't care about your feelings.

Just a modicum of respect for the President of the United States would be nice. When you disagree with your wife or a friend or even someone you strongly oppose do you call them disrespectful titles? The President is Donald Trump. We need to refrain from pejorative labeling.


antiteaparty

Right. Obama is a Muslim who was born in Kenya. You mean like that? I'm old enough to remember this being the common conservative trope for all of President Obama's eight years in the White House.


Kate70

Anti Teaparty, it didn't come from me. And I don't believe I ever saw it on here. Nevertheless, it was wrong as well.


antiteaparty

I never said it came from you. I tire of we must be civil when there is a Republican in the White House, when that is NEVER reciprocated.


Kate70

As do I. From both parties.


antiteaparty

You can bang on that civility/both sides drum all you want, Kate. But I am going to be affording Dump the same civility the Rethuglicans afforded Obama. Not just because of turnabout being fair play but also because Obama was sooooooo much a better president. Remember "You lie!" during Obama's State of the Union? Forget taking the high road. Rethuglicans made this bed, now they get to lay in it.

PS: I have never listened to Rush Limbaugh and advance on up to what? I believe someone once said I was a broken record but I will say it once again: CSpan is the only news channel that broadcasts news....no opinions, no slants, no commentary whatsoever. Covers all the speeches, rallies, Congressional talks, debates, etc. If you want to make up your own minds and not be driven by someone else, I advise you to stop with mainstream media/Fox/or any other political "news" that reports with their own bias. MHO only.


antiteaparty

C-Span is not news. It is opinion. Floor debates are not news. They are simply opinions expressed by Representative and Senators. Same goes for speeches and rallies. I would contend that opinion is all you get from C-Span.


Kate70

You misunderstood, I think, what I was trying to say. CSpan ITSELF does not give any opinion. Most assuredly you hear opinion from every candidate and every congressman, and leader who speaks or is filmed! But that IS the news.... that is what WE should be interpreting OURSELVES and not allowing newspapers, news media, journalists, comedians, Hollywood or otherwise celebrities to sway our thinking by cramming THEIR biases and interpretations down our throats until we become, as you said above, indoctrinated by all the left or right viewpoints of social media and everyone else I mentioned here so that all we are capable of doing is spewing out someone else's propaganda. Watch the candidates. Watch and listen to the people you elected and others elected. Decide if you like or totally disagree with what they are saying for YOURSELF. Don't let yourself be spoon fed someone else's opinion of what others are saying. Both sides leave out parts of speeches, take things out of context, and paraphrase things from their own viewpoint. Perfectly ok for them. Is it really the best way to get the "news"?? Or just getting views. Listen to the whole speech. Listen to the whole speech of other parties. Decide for yourself what you believe in. Or don't. Go ahead and do just what you feel Iman is doing and has become..... indoctrinated, parroting what was heard from other than the horse's mouth, propagandized, brainwashed. We all have a choice. You have repeatedly accused me of listening only to right wing fanatics and sources ... I was merely pointing out that there is a source that simply lets both sides be shown and heard in entirety and makes no commentary or expresses any opinion on either party. I like not being told what I should think. I like to decide that for myself. It is the personal cornerstone of MY 'independence' of thought and choice. If yours is to listen to the opinions of others that is your choice.

When Trump lies, says he didn't "say that", buddies up to Putin instead of our own intelligence agencies, spends more of OUR money at his resorts golfing every other week-end, says he is in love with Un, calls people names, hasn't paid the cities his rallies are held at, etc...see where I am going here. He creates bad news all by himself and his bad WAY out ways what tiny bit of good he has done.
