    ... on the steel aluminum tariffs that have unions singing praises.
    Not one.
    16 negative stories about tweets, asking stupid questions like "why do some Americans believe he is a racist?"..various hollywood rants about him...etc. But not one story on such a large important act.

    Nah.... no bias here.

    Nothing on Faux’s homepage either. Must be because massive tariffs are universally opposed by anybody with a brain.

    They have talked about it throughout the morning.
    Good or bad, it is kind of a big deal. Bigger than childish, meaningless rock throwing stories like this.

    You must be the only person left on the planet who watches CNN.

    You do know there are more news providers than CNN or Faux?

    Not a word about racist Chuck Schumer refusing to confirm judicial appointees based on their skin color either,

    If Mitch McConnel had refused to confirm Obama appointees on the grounds that they were black, I'm guessing the NY Times might have actually run a story

    Of course no link, so one navigates to cnn.com and finds in big font with a picture:

    Rump's Week Was Not So Crazy After All (with references to heavy metal tariffs along with other issues)

    and under that heading a more specific story:

    Rump's Tariff Move Shows He Flunked Economics

    And then elsewhere up the main page, probably the most informative too:
    Rump's Tariffs Are for Places Where he Needs to Win Back Support

    Guess you're right --- "not one story". Three stories.
    I stopped reading there. I don't like involuntary pop-up videos.
