CNBC

7/17/17

I used to read Reuters for more unbiased reporting than US media sources, but Reuters has been steadily decreasing quality journalism by interjecting negative spin on positive events. No more "fair and unbiased reporting".
Today's article reported on CNBC under the Reuters heading on "Made in America Week" is filled with invective sabotaging the positive event.
The first line sets the mood declaring "Plagued by daily revelations...the White House... tries to focus on issues that matter". I don't think Reuters or CNBC knows the motivation of the White House and is probably misrepresenting the real purpose of the event which is to showcase American products from all 50 states. An event of this magnitude has been in planning long before "the plague" of recent events.

The next paragraph cites the White House spokesperson speaking from "a hotel near President Donald Trump's golf course" which has nothing to do with Made in America Week but serves to impugn the President for his past use of his resorts.

The negative spin goes on through the entire report. It's possible that CNBC hijacked the Reuters feed and put their own spin on it or made it up on their own as there is no mention of Made in America Week in Reuters Top News, US, or Politics feeds. Is this more fake news? Maybe Reuters should monitor better how other media sources use their reports.

How about some straight up news?
Just the facts. No spin. No interpretation. No bias.
I'll form my own opinions, thank you.

LA Fitness advised I could freeze my account if I would be gone for a month. When I asked about starting the freeze period I was told no one was there to help me. Staff did not take my name or pass on a message to anyone to contact me to get it set up. I did not use the facility for over a month and called to get the freeze started from the time I was not able to use it as I had earlier requested. Was told they could not go back and freeze or credit my account. Even when it was their fault for not getting it done when first requested. They further advised me they could only do it beginning with next billing cycle which is 13 days away. Ok but no one told me this when I signed up with the club. I asked to talk with a manager and was transferred to corporate in California and talked with Evelyn who was unwilling to take responsibility for not getting freeze in a timely manner or accommodating me in any way. I was only asking for a $19 credit but apparently the money is more important to LA Fitness than taking care of their customers or providing good customer service. It seems this attitude comes from the top at corporate in Irvine California. Very disturbing and not the kind of company I like to do business with. I did not check reviews before signing up but am surprised at the multitude of negative reviews and absence of positive reviews. I will be switching to another fitness center asap.

Not a bad storage unit if you can accept the extreme rent hike. Approximately 40 percent increase in 2 years

I used to enjoy Reuters as the most unbiased news reporting. I am a moderate and like to read...

Reuters is a very left leaning biased news source now. Reuters news used to be a reasonable news...
