MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle continues to blame the media for the lack of confidence in the economy, while also pointing a finger at consumers for high inflation. A recent panel discussion covered inflation concerns and the frozen housing market, but Ruhle claimed the media’s role in promoting expensive gas prices and high mortgages contributed to the issue.
During the discussion, mention of Biden’s infrastructure package surfaced, highlighting the time gap between passing such packages and the public seeing their effects. The main takeaway is that elections now rely on encouraging the Democratic base to turn out. However, Ruhle’s insistence on blaming both media and consumers for economic woes demonstrates a reluctance to face the various factors contributing to inflation and lack of confidence in the economy.
