    Today all over the economic news is "February added more jobs than expected" or "More jobs added to the private sector, showing continued recovery".

    Bullshit.

    At least Rueters has the honesty in their article to tell the truth and state this is based on ADP data - and - that ADP data has been terribly unreliable to predict labor for the last year.
    In fact the article goes on to say that "when actual data is reported Friday, it is unlikely that the data will show this improvement".

    The worse? Fox News. Laughably right under this headline is another article -- "February planned layoffs highest in 11 months".

    I am so sick of inaccurate headlines and false articles from EVERY outlet.
    Damn

    So in other words, media shouldn't announce any good news, only the bad. Yes, let's continue dragging down the American public with nothing but bad news.

    Of course if this were some Republican administration, you people would be hoot'n & hollerin' over the "good news." I seem to recall a lot of fudging of employment numbers prior to 2009, where reclassification of jobs made the percentages look swimming, when in reality, they sucked.

    And btw, I heard the same analysis Reuters gave on CNBC this morning. So much for the accusation. You just need to know how to LISTEN.

    No, they should just report it accurately, without putting a pro or anti spin on it. Americans are grown ups, we can handle honest information. Good or bad.

    News is now slanted thanks to Fox.

    The right screamed about the media being left leaning so they could air a Fox station which slants everything to the right.


    When your information is coltrolled by the wealthiest members in your country ( hell or not even your country) you get what the wealthy want you to hear.

    That is how we got marched to war in Iraq on a stack of lies.

    Turn 'it' off, go to the public library (if it isn't now closed) and get a book. I recommend a long biography, one on John Marshall or another 'founder' other than a president. Bios are great reading and usually (the good ones) are filled with quotes and notes from primary sources, leading to an understanding of the man or women in historical context.
