CNS' Jeffrey Still Won't Blame Trump For Record Federal Spending, Deficit

We've documented how editor in chief Terry Jeffrey is highly reluctant to single out President Trump for blame President Trump and the Republicans who control the federal government for record federal deficits, even though he showed little reluctance in blaming Democrats when President Obama was in office. Jeffrey expressed more of that blame-free outrage in a June 12 article:

For the first time in the history of the United States, the federal government has spent more than $3 trillion in the first eight months of the fiscal year, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.

The record $3,013,541,000,000 that the federal government spent in October through May of fiscal 2019 was $181,157,920,000 more than the previous record of $2,832,383,080,000 (in constant May 2019 dollars) that the federal government spent in October through May of fiscal 2009.

As before, the words "Trump" and "Republican" appear nowhere in Jeffrey's article. And as before, Jeffrey tried to take some of the implicit heat off Trump by including a picture of him with Democratic House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

This time around, though, Jeffrey left off the tag about CNS' economic reporting being "funded in part with a gift made in memory of Dr. Keith C. Wold." Maybe the Wold family got tired of their name being attached to such dishonest reporting?
