CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CBS journos hype Biden gas tax holiday, now claim president can affect prices: ‘No-brainer’

BIDEN LOOKS EVERYWHERE TO LOWER GAS PRICES — EXCEPT BOOSTING OIL PRODUCTION"You can’t just like criticize everything," Brzezinski said.
He repeated that Biden was set on helping middle-class Americans twice more, before Brzezinski asked if Republicans had any solutions themselves.
ABC News correspondent Brad Mielke called the gas tax proposal by Biden a "no-brainer" and said he was confused to see politicians from both sides of the aisle push back on the idea.
THESE USED VEHICLES ARE SKYROCKETING IN VALUE DUE TO HIGH GAS PRICESThere is currently an 18.4 cents-a-gallon tax on gas and a 24.4 cents-a-gallon federal tax on diesel fuel.
Even many economists view the idea of a gas tax holiday with skepticism.
Administration officials said the $10 billion cost of the gas tax holiday would be paid for and the Highway Trust Fund kept whole, even though the gas taxes make up a substantial source of revenue for the fund.
So Joe Biden, as [he's] sitting there at the White House, doesn't have a lot of really great options," Javers said.
'BREAKING BAD' ACTOR SAYS AMERICANS SHOULD 'STFU' ABOUT GAS PRICES IF THEY 'LOVE CAPITALISM SO MUCH'On Sunday, Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampbell appeared to echo the words of Javers and Buttigieg.
"The president does not have some super-secret special dial on his desk that can adjust gas prices, but many voters believe otherwise," she wrote.
In November, CNN featured a prime example of the media’s mixed messaging on whether a president has any agency when it comes to altering gas prices.
At the time, CNN Business senior writer Julia Horowitz wrote an article titled, "Why Joe Biden can’t do much to ease gas prices," and claimed in the piece that the Biden administration’s ability to leverage the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would do little to impact gas prices.
A week later, the same writer touted a small slip in the price of gas, urging readers in the headline to "Thank China and Joe Biden."
