[See NewsBusters for more.] Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos may no longer be an official paid operative of the Democratic Party, but he’s clearly still doing the same work. The former aide to Bill Clinton parroted Biden White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain’s spin that sky high inflation is actually good news for Social Security recipients. A similarly desperate attempt was made on CBS. Talking to reporter Mary Bruce about the latest bad economic news, Stephanopoulos insisted, “Inflation is, in some ways, good news for Social Security recipients.” Over on CBS Mornings, business analyst Jill Schlesinger wasn’t quite as bad as Stephanopoulos and Bruce. But she described the bump in benefits as the “only good news about high inflation.”
