This week, as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine came into focus, CBS News used the development to run defense for Joe Biden, blaming the conflict for the rise in inflation and gas prices.
This is particularly ridiculous because inflation and gas prices have been rising for months.
CBS News really thinks the American people are stupid enough to believe their spin.
FOX News reports:
CBS News ripped for blaming inflation, other economic issues on Ukraine crisis: ‘New scapegoat has dropped’
CBS News is being ripped by critics for blaming increased gas prices, inflation and supply-chain issues on Russia and the crisis in Ukraine rather than the Biden administration’s handling of the economy.
“The U.S. economy has been hit with increased gas prices, inflation, and supply-chain issues due to the Ukraine crisis,” the liberal network wrote in a Tuesday tweet, linking to an article that described what “could” happen as a result of Russian action in Ukraine rather than the economic challenges already impacting Americans.
Despite the ongoing struggles hitting wallets across the country, the piece also claimed that Americans “were able to weather” spikes in the price of goods because of government provided enhanced unemployment benefits during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, stimulus payments and tax credits.

This is a perfect example of why so many people no longer trust the media.
