Several media outlets look the other way as Biden is frontrunner for "Lie of the Year"

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today, we received news that our economy had zero inflation in the month of July.

Zero percent. Here’s what that means: While the price of some things go up — went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result? Zero inflation last month.”

Those were the words President Biden used to address the nation on Wednesday.

In addition to repairing roads, bridges, and power grids, his administration has expanded the definition of infrastructure (it's no longer just about improved roads, bridges and power grids) and what a recession is (no longer two consecutive quarters of negatively growing GDP).

The claim that inflation is at zero in the U.S. economy has just moved into the lead for the "Lie of the Year" award. 

As a result of price increases, most Americans are financially worse off, the Associated Press reported this week.

Despite rising wages, food, rent, autos, and medical costs continue to rise faster than they have in decades.
