Longtime readers of the Daily Business News on MHProNews know that we’ve reported on aspects of tech and media bias or errors over the years. This evening the issue is significant with respect to the upcoming 2020 contests, but it is also relevant to business on the marketing and educational levels too. On a day when the major markets were mildly down, and manufactured home tracked stocks closed mix, we’ll look at the headline topic in our evening spotlight.
If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further below, after the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.
The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets. Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets. So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©
Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.
Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.
This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s markets and stocks snapshot, at the closing bell…
Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –
Washington Examiner commentary writer Siraj Hashmi is interviewed in the video below on President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over bias on social media platforms is the topic of this video.
That political bias with the tech giants is getting more attention, as it should. The right-of-center Fox Business video interview with Hashmi – which includes a short clip with the president – is below.
The intrepid conservative undercover video operation Project Veritas claims it has broken a story that purports Google insiders who revealed plans to stop a repeat in 2020 of the Donald J. Trump election upset accomplished in 2016.
YouTube, which with Google are both under parent Alphabet’s umbrella, allegedly censored the undercover video of Project Veritas. Here is a longer clip of President Trump commenting on this issue with Fox Business.
Next is right-of-center Daily Caller’s (DC) video on the topic. It includes some of the censored video. That noted, this DC video does a fine thumbnail pro-and-con on the trustworthiness of this Project Veritas video. Put differently, their analysis appears balanced – even humorous.
As important as political bias can be for reasons noted in a report linked here earlier this week, it is no less important to businesses, nonprofits, organizations, and industries. That obviously includes manufactured housing. Ask Google to define “manufactured home” and here is what the search result is. That answer is factually incorrect. Given millions of searches, and the dimmer view that the public has about mobile homes, how can that mistaken definition help our industry?
Search bias by Google, YouTube, or any other search engine is as – perhaps more – serious as media bias or ignorance can be.
Given the industry’s struggles in recent years, and the challenges ahead in the election, this is an issue we plan to monitor.
