Yellen’s female, that’s the story!

Newsies have their narrative, none must deviate, otherwise they look stupid.

Janet Yellen was confirmed as Federal Reserve Chairman on Jan. 6, but in spite of becoming one of the most powerful bankers in the world, the broadcasts networks continued to ignore her left-wing views.

Instead of discussing Yellen’s support for fiscal stimulus and regulatory efforts, ABC, CBS, and NBC focused exclusively on her gender in recent news reports.

In the first 24 hours following her confirmation, the broadcast networks spent no time describing her political and economic policy views. All of the networks’ morning and evening news shows, except for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” mentioned the confirmation and each highlighted Yellen’s gender and pointed out that she is the first woman to head the Federal Reserve.

It’s the lemming effect.
