They might offer a chicken in every pot or even vow to end wars in places like Iraq or Afghanistan. That's just marketing. But once they get elected, we expect them to be honest.</p> <p>Or at least we used to. Not any longer. Not since the $787 billion stimulus bill passed in 2010. Now, two years after it was signed into law on Feb. 17, it's easy to see why we've given up on political honesty. As Rep.

But when the economy began to stumble, it was fear of high unemployment and a promise to prevent it that the Obama administration used to usher in the $787 billion stimulus package. As The New York Times reported on Oct. 22, 2009, "The Obama administration's forecast at the start of the year, which predicted that unemployment would not climb much above 8 percent."</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bias-numbers/stimulus-two-years-later-networks-ignore-obamas-failed-job-promise" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Bias by the Numbers MRC Business 2009 2010 abc administration administrations Americans asked bill bmi broadcast bush called cbs claim couric coverage dec didnt economic economy effects evening failed feb government guarantee high higher job jobs july katie mentioned NBC nbcs needed network networks news nightly obama obamas oct package percent plan point prediction president promise promised rate reported Reporters stay Stimulus stories story unemployment viewers working world wrong year years Wed, 16 Feb 2011 19:56:00 +0000 admin 29509 at http://www.mrc.org CNNMoney Misrepresents Rep.
