Countering Right-Wing "Think" tanks

Hi Prof. Wolff. I live in Canada, and suffer under the Fraser Institute, among other right-wing "think tanks" that despite efforts to counter their spin, continue to be taken seriously by mainstream media, including the CBC, our public broadcaster. This article on how the median household income has actually "increased by 56%" since the 1970s reeks of spin, but I'm not economically literate enough to explain why. Can you counter these arguments? https://www.fraserinstitute.org/studies/the-myth-of-middle-class-stagnation-in-canada
