Nancy Pelosi Scolds Reporters for Not Selling 'Build Back Better' Effectively

Just in case you needed more proof that members of the media have moved from journalism to left-wing activism, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently castigated the press for not doing its part to promote President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda. It was one of those “saying the quiet part out loud moments” that further illustrates what the Democrats expect of their Ministry of Propaganda.

During a Tuesday press conference, CBS News’ Nikole Killion referenced a poll showing that only 10 percent of Americans know a lot of the specifics of the president’s plan. “Do you think you need to do a better job of messaging, and going forward, how do you sell this?” she asked.

Pelosi replied:

“Well, I think you all could do a better job of selling it to be very frank with you, because every time I come here I go through the list. Family medical leave, climate, the issues that are in there. But it is true. It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package.”

Biden’s Build Back Better agenda has been polling favorably with the American public. Several studies show that voters are supporting the legislative proposal. However, CBS News’ poll could suggest the reason why the legislation enjoys so much support is because the vast majority of Americans have little to no idea what the proposal includes.

Moreover, it’s important to point out that when the activist media is trying to sell the plan, it is not explaining the deep flaws inherent in the bill. In short, people are learning very little about Biden’s agenda – and the little they are being told is overwhelmingly positive. In light of this, it is not too shocking that the agenda is getting support.

Still, despite the legislation’s popularity, it does not seem it has much of a chance of being made into reality. With Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) remaining steadfast in their opposition to the legislation and the Democrats’ inability to persuade Republicans to support the $4.5 trillion fluff package, the left is likely to be pretty disappointed.
