Blackout: Major progressive web sites omit report that Starbucks is giving raises as result of GOP tax cut

media TDS

Yesterday at 5:09 am Reuters reported that Starbucks was going to give raises to employees. From the story:

Starbucks Corp (SBUX.O) will use some of the savings from the new U.S. corporate tax cuts to give domestic employees pay raises, company stock and expanded benefits with a combined worth of more than $250 million, the company said on Wednesday.

With the announcement, the world’s biggest coffee chain joins companies like Walmart (WMT.N), Apple Inc APPL.O, Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O) and American Airlines Group Inc (AAL.O) in sharing their tax savings with employees.

Starbucks is known for giving its workers, which it calls “partners,” more generous pay and benefits than other mass-market restaurants and retailers.

“Investing in our partners has long been our strategy, and due to the recent changes in U.S. tax law, we are able to accelerate some significant partner investments,” Chief Executive Kevin Johnson said in a letter to employees.”

Over 11 hours later, at 1:45 pm (Central Time), I went to several proggie web sites to search how they reported this great news. I searched the following sites to see if they had “Starbucks” or any story on their home page about this announcement:

At the time of my search, I didn’t find ANY article on this good news on the above web sites. Gee, I wonder why?

CBS news had the story, at the bottom of their home page under the “Money Watch” category. Fox News DID have the story, about a quarter of the way down on their home page.

Wonder if these progressive “news” web sites will get around to reporting this great news as a result of the GOP tax cut plan, which NOT ONE demorat voted for.

No wonder we call them #FakeNews.


PS: I checked all the web sites bulleted above at 9:30 pm last night and STILL NOTHING about the Starbucks announcement. Shocker, not.

  1. don’t see why a political site need to announce a corp’s pay raise


    • Yeah, most people don’t see the media bias.

      Guarantee you if the dems voted in the tax cut the proggie web sites would be SCREAMING about all the companies giving raises and bonuses as a result of their actions.

      • Of course.
        When Obamanation was in office, they were just so happy to report on the (fudged probably) statistics about how unemployment numbers went down by 0.000000000001 percentage point in the first quarter (in other words, McDonalds was hiring).

    • Another example of how “journalists” determine what they choose to announce: The photo that never saw the light of day: Obama with Farrakhan in 2005

      Love how they decide what to “keep under cover.”

      • DCG . . . . this shows the extent of duplicity on the part of those who are liberals. They will secret anything that betrays their candidate, or rhetoric to be questionable.

        • Very true. For eight years, every photo of BO in the White House was staged and strategically played. Down to him thumbing his nose at us while he put his shoes up in all the furniture.

  2. Starbucks, I haven’t been in there in years. With all their over priced coffee they can afford to give raises. Go to some local java joint instead.
    I think the reason the “progressive” (ie: communist) news sites didn’t mention it is because they don’t want the victims of tax theft (tax payers) to realize how much money is “given” (wasted) to the government!

    • Sorry,Starclucks,I prefer to go to places where the coffee is better,cheaper and they welcome Americans carrying their guns in holsters,ya LOSERS.

      • Speaking of welcoming people carrying guns, I recall reading years ago that Starbucks cleverly whitewashes its funding of the homicidally psychopathic settlers from American suburbs to the West Bank by running it through Chairman Schultz’s private “charity.” If true, Starbucks slogan could be “Wake up and smell the lead,” and in the interest of honest labeling the artwork on their paper cups could be one of those ever-so-funny drawings of a Palestinian child framed in the crosshairs of an M16 paid for by American taxpayers.


    • I refuse to enter the doors of a business that thinks so little of Republicans and the President. They have had several shady things over the years and their coffee is overpriced and sucks,

    Wonder if the major progressive fake news will be giving raises to their employees. If not, the employees should raise cane.

    Screw the MS media! If it doesn’t play to their talking points it doesn’t get played! Not new news at all. Just consistency. Good work guys! You still suck.
