While some Americans already know where a lot of President Biden’s $1.85 trillion reconciliation bill is planning on being spent, many were shocked to learn that there is a small portion of the bill that will give MAJOR tax breaks to local media outlets sparking outrage from many who already don’t trust the media.
According to Fox Business, the tax break will provide eligible local media organizations such as newspapers, news sites and T.V. station to receive a tax credit of $25,000 per journalist they hire and $15,000 for the next four years thereafter.
Republicans such as House Minority Whip Steve Scalise have already called the plan “a scam” and rightfully so.
“This is Biden and Dems in Congress helping pay the reporters’ salaries who cover for them,” he added.
Others have accused Biden of putting media outlets on a federal payroll and reporters will not criticize the same politicians who fund them.
This appears to be a clear bribe to silence the media from exposing the dirty truth about Democrats and their plan could destroy journalism if they succeed at passing it.
