Is the media ever right about anything?
Back in February, video showing the reaction of workers at Carrier Manufacturing after learning that their jobs had been outsourced and they’d soon be unemployed went viral. 1400 jobs were to be moved to Mexico.
Donald Trump quickly seized the story, stating that if elected, he’d negotiate a deal with them to prevent that. “Here’s what’s going to happen,” Trump told a crowd in Indianapolis in April. “I’ll get a call from the head of Carrier and he’ll say, ‘Mr. President, we’ve decided to stay in the United States.’ That’s what’s going to happen — 100%.”
CNN cast doubt on Trump’s promise, quoting workers who didn’t think Trump would be able to save their jobs
And what just happened?
President-elect Donald Trump’s team has reportedly reached a deal to keep hundreds of Carrier jobs in Indiana.
CNBC cited sources in reporting the deal with United Technologies Tuesday evening, which will keep close to 1,000 factory jobs at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis. The network says the deal will include new inducements from the state and was spearheaded by Vice President-elect Gov. Mike Pence.
Big day on Thursday for Indiana and the great workers of that wonderful state.We will keep our companies and jobs in the U.S. Thanks Carrier

Well, that was quick.
Trump hasn’t even taken office yet, and the stock market has reached new highs, Ford and Carrier announced they’ll be reversing some of their outsourcing decisions, and Fidel Castro is dead. So far so good.
