Mainstream Media Brands Top Country Hit As Right-Wing

( – During a recent segment on Fox News’s “Outnumbered,” the panelists pushed back on the mainstream media labeling the song “Rich Men North of Richmond” a “right-wing anthem,” Fox News reported.

The song by country singer Oliver Anthony describes the struggle of the working class to earn money while politicians seek “total control.”

NBC News described “Rich Men North of Richmond” as a “conservative anthem,” while the Seattle Times called it a “right-wing anthem.”

While Anthony’s song has resonated with conservatives and Trump populists, “Outnumbered” co-host Harris Faulkner asked last Monday why the song shouldn’t be considered an “American Anthem.” She suggested that the message didn’t have to be political since all Americans regardless of party are experiencing it.

She argued that the Left doesn’t want to understand the true struggles that Americans outside of Washington DC are facing.

Fox national correspondent Griff Jenkins suggested that Anthony’s song could be titled “The Ballad of Bidenomics,” as it addresses the frustrations working Americans experience trying to make ends meet in the Biden economy.

Fox contributor Lisa Boothe pointed out that since the COVID lockdowns, the middle class has been getting “crushed” in the economy while the “power is concentrated in the hands of the few.” She suggested that the media attacks the song since they exist in “power bubbles” where it is easier to ignore the problems the rest of the country is facing.

Co-host Kayleigh McEneny suggested that the disconnect is similar to what occurred after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. She explained that while the media was blindsided by Trump’s victory, anyone who listened to the American people “could see it coming.”

She said the same thing is happening today when it comes to the economy. President Biden visits Philadelphia to boast about Bidenomics, but the American people aren’t experiencing the economic boom Biden claims to have created.
