Yet Another Way the Government & Media Manipulate the Truth
I’ve talked in the past how inflation talking points can be manipulated by simply referring to percentages with new base numbers. The following example may clarify how price changes can be spun to show inflation “improvement”:
As you can see, even when prices are increasing by the same amount or more, the percent change may actually decrease due to the higher starting point. Even if the inflation rate falls to 0 percent, are we really better off when total price increase has more than doubled? As midterm elections approach, watch for Democrats & the media to use this tactic to credit Biden & the “Inflation Reduction Act” that hasn’t even been implemented. Also watch for goods with extra high price increases to be removed from the Consumer Price Index. As we’ve seen with the CDC, if the results don’t show what you want, change how they’re measured.

Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.
There are three kinds of lies
Statistics and I must add… government percentages
The CPI has been manipulated for over 20 years.
It’s new news because the public memory is about 20 days.
South Carolina is happy to see the Gadsden Flag taken up by Florida and hopes to see them fly The Bonnie Blue, it’s original to them, when things need to go to the next level.
