[Ed. – What fake news?]

One reason people can complain about the evening newscasts on the networks is that they are bored with economic data, especially when it makes the Trump administration look good.

On screen, it read “JOBS REPORT STRONG BUT MANY AMERICANS STILL STRUGGLING.”

David Begnaud was anchoring the CBS Evening News, and they had no time for the national jobs numbers. Instead, they reported a full story on the bleak picture of homelessness in Los Angeles. …

Reporter Jamie Yuccas reported almost 60,000 people are homeless in Los Angeles County, because you have to earn $50 an hour just to afford the median monthly rent ($2,471). No one said a word about any politicians being responsible, but Yuccas briefly interviewed county supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas (no mention he was a Democrat).
