CNN continues to push its fruit-themed “Facts First” ad campaign, but the liberal news network hasn’t updated its “Trump Jobs Tracker” in months, despite an explosion in employment.
EDITOR’S NOTE: CNN proudly covered Donald Trump’s every move during his first 100 day in office, but a Harvard study finds that the coverage was a whoppingly 93% negative. CNN has continued that trend during the president’s first year. Compare that to CNN’s coverage of Obama’s first 100 days where 59% of all CNN stories were positive with only 41% negative. Trump’s policies for the economy in 2018 have been so successful, creating so many new jobs that CNN is no longer updating their ‘Trump Jobs Tracker’. Trump has long called them ‘Fake News CNN’, and with nearly every misleading or outright phony story they publish, CNN proves Trump right on a daily basis. And in a massive ironic twist, as Trump continues to add new jobs, the layoffs and firings at CNN continue unabated. Sounds like someone got run over by the Trump Train. #MAGA.
The tracker was last updated jobs tracker Jan. 5, 2018, as first noticed by Daily Caller media reporter Joe Simonson. CNN’s site notes that Trump promised to add 208,333 jobs per month and features the message, “He’s off Track,” in a large font splashed across the page.
U.S. employers added a robust 200,000 jobs in January and another 313,000 jobs were created in February, which was the most growth in a single month since July 2016 – leaving CNN’s jobs tracker badly outdated, not to mention misleading.
Simonson wrote that the information missing from CNN’s page make the totals “more than enough to be on a healthy pace to average 208,333 jobs per month in 2018.” An update would result in CNN being forced to remove the prominently displayed anti-Trump message and replace it with something noting that the president is “on track.”
CNN did not immediately respond to request for comment. Job gains for 2018 are now averaging 242,000 per month, according to The Hill.
Jobs are not being created at CNN. Last month, its digital operation began cutting jobs and it has been reported that as many as 50 staffers would eventually be let go as part of cutbacks. It would be easy to assume that whomever is responsible for updating the “Trump Jobs Tracker” was let go as part of the layoffs, but Daily Caller reported that only one of its authors has left CNN since the page was created.
A CNN insider tells Fox News that more layoffs are expected at CNN’s digital operation, as parent company Time Warner clamps down on profligate spending and bloated staff in CNN’s digital unit, ahead of an expected corporate takeover by AT&T. CNN’s digital products include CNN Money’s large anti-Trump media coverage team which has several staffers who cater mostly to elite media insiders.
Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, has poured millions of dollars into CNN’s digital operations, but some of the costly moves have not paid off. BuzzFeed reported in September that CNN’s digital unit was “facing a $20 million budget shortfall” while Vanity Fair reported that CNN Digital has missed its revenue targets over the last year by tens of millions of dollars.
As important elements of CNN’s site go unattended, several employees are in Austin, Texas, for SXSW where the network spared no expense for a swanky fruit-themed party titled “Go Bananas” that featured apple decorations inspired by the “Facts First” ad campaign. source

NTEB has been hit with some serious bills related to our operating costs in 2018, the price of everything is going up! So we have prayerfully decided to extend our fundraiser into the springtime, specifically to May 14th, 2018. Without your generous support of this ministry, we would not be able to continue operating.
When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
Personally, I hate having to hold a fundraiser, I truly do. If I had them money I would give it all personally and never ask anyone for a penny. In fact, I have given everything I have to this ministry. But the Lord knows better than I do, and I believe with all my heart that He is asking all of you to invest in this ministry as well.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,426 people on our daily mailing list gave $2.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,913 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 600% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
“Thank you very much!” – Geoffrey, editor-in-chief, NTEB
