CNS Touts Walmart's Trump-Credited Bonuses, Censors Its Store Closings
Topic: CNSNews.com

Craig Bannister, blogger for the pro-Trump stenographers at CNSNews.com, dutifully writes in a Jan. 11 blog post:

Walmart announced Thursday that it will raise its hourly starting wage, give bonuses to eligible employees, expand maternity leave and provide adoption aid – thanks to the passage of President Donald Trump’s tax reform plan.

The combined wage and benefit changes will benefit its more than one million U.S. hourly associates at Walmart, Sam’s Club and other related enterprises, the company says.

Notice that Bannister is relying on nothing but a statement from Walmart itself (which we can't access because the link he embedded is broken).

It also means that Bannister doesn't tell readers that, on the same day those Trump-linked pay raises were announced, Walmart also closed 63 Sam's Club warehouse stores, eliminating thousands of jobs -- which would seem to undercut the message.

But Bannister's mission isn't to report the full truth; it's to be a Trump suck-up and to ignore the truth when it conflicts with that mission.
