Well this is rich. The AP is reporting that taxing the media (advertising media in this case) “could have damaging consequences” to the industry.
What caught my eye to this article was the headline that begins with “Media watchdog.” Only to find out that the media watchdog they were referring to is watchers of the media, not watchers of government. That dog died with the rise of Obama.
The irony of it all is that only now does the AP report that the notion of taxing a business “could have damaging consequences.” It’s perfectly alright to levy taxes on every other industry or person.
