It was reported all over the MSM. This is just the same old schtick from Limbaugh (and other conservative blowhards), claiming that something that could be perceived as favorable to conservatives does not get reported on the MSM, even when it is widely reported (and is often the actual source for the news they claim that isn't being covered). It succeeds because his listeners don't listen to or read the MSM because they're afraid of being confronted with facts that don't conform to their worldview (i.e., "fake news").

Apple Inc. announced a series of plans Wednesday that were celebrated as promises to hire thousands of workers and bring home all of its overseas cash.

Well, not necessarily.

I think this is yet another example of a corporate CEO's blowing smoke up Trump's ass so that he'll have a favorable impression of them as in the Carrier deal.

I am thinking Reagnomics double dip recession V.2.
Like this:

The Republican tax cut could not come at a worse time, unnecessarily overheating an aging economic recovery that’s already operating near full employment, said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Leuthold Weeden Capital Management.

“If it is a stimulative tax cut, it will hasten inflation and prematurely bring a recession,” Paulsen said in a speech Wednesday.
