On Wednesday, it became clear that President Biden’s negligent spending in the Build Back Better bill was dead as Democrats did not have the votes in the Senate to get it passed before Christmas and the start of an election year. And after doing their darndest to gaslight the American public about what’s in the bill, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC; including Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision) ignored the final conclusion of the bill’s slow, agonizing demise.

The un-ceremonial farewell to the bill that would’ve thrown trillions of dollars at social spending boondoggles was one of the top stories on Fox News Channel’s Special Report. Anchor Bret Baier even kicked off the segment with a Fox News Business poll showing “almost half of registered voters surveyed think President Biden's Build Back Better plan would push inflation higher. Only 21 percent think it would help lower inflation.”

“The best-laid plans of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer may have gone astray,” quipped congressional correspondent Chad Pergram, juxtaposing the Senator’s hopes for the bill and the harsh reality.
