Fox Hollow, FL – This morning (April 20, 2016) the local Fox 13 WTVT news channel out of Tampa reported that the average salary of an average worker in Tampa, FL is $50,000.00… this is a load of bullshit and it’s easy to figure it out. If WTF.com can figure this out with almost no budget and very few resources, you would think that a multi-million dollar news agency could figure it out as well.
The figures that Fox 13 reported were produced by a real estate association for the purpose of duping out-of-towners and snowbirds currently vacating in and around the Tampa Bay area into thinking that Tampa is flush with high paying jobs so they will come down here and purchase overpriced houses.
If you pull an average job salary report out of Indeed.com or Monster.com then you will find that the REAL average salary in the Tampa Bay area is way down around $35,000.00. The Fox 13 report was swayed because they included attorneys, doctors, firefighters, police officers, elected and other jobs that “average” job seekers are ineligible for. When you remove these ineligible jobs from the report, the salary rate drops like a rock down to $35,000.00.
Again we are a low budget news blog… Fox 13 WTVT is a massive multi-million dollar news agency with resources coming out of their wazoos. They didn’t report this by accident, they did it deliberately knowing that the report was crap and a big fat lie.
I wonder how much this real estate association that produced this fake jobs report paid Fox 13 to run this bogus story. It wouldn’t be the first time that Fox 13 used its media platform in an attempt to mislead the public. A few years back Fox 13 in Tampa got busted when it went out of its way to cover up an investigative report, by its own Fox 13 reporters.
The report attempted to uncover the health dangers of growth hormones that were being fed to local dairy cows. Long story short the Florida dairy association along with Monsanto got wind of the report and contacted Fox 13 Station mgmt. After some threats and some bribe money was lobbed at Fox 13 mgmt, the Fox 13 General Mgr went out of his way to intimidate his own staff into destroying the original report, and instead replace it with a growth hormone fluff piece about how good Monsanto’s products are for people’s health.
Luckily for us, these reporters had a backbone and stood up to station mgmt who ultimately fired them for refusing to compromise their integrity. In response to being fired by the underhanded and unethical Fox 13, these reporters produced their own video detailing the entire ordeal. The video went viral and can be found below.
So in short, Tampa doesn’t have any jobs that pay $35,000, much less “abundant” jobs that pay $50,000+. Don’t move here, we are full of unemployed people from out of state that was duped into moving down here by yellow-journalism con-jobs similar to this crap report.
Stay where you are.
