    This AM's Yahoo news.
    Payrolls rise sharply, giving Obama some relief - Yahoo! Finance

    Now, you have to read further down to discover that the unemployment rate actually went up. They explain it away as more people entering the workforce. But equally when the rate was going lower they did not explain that it was due to more people dropping out of the workforce.
    A more honest headline would be:
    Unemployment Up for October. Job growth barely exceeds replacement rate.

    Plus or Minus 0.2% is the usual confidence interval in the U. S. Household Survey which generates the Unemployment Rate. Essentally the rate is just like last month.

    The increase of employment in the Household Survey is the actual better harbinger of the future, in the hundeds of thousands range

    In Line With The Two Stupid Guys, Romney-Ryan, Way Too Stupid: Those New customers in the stores is not what they are for! Those are customers coming into stores: Which Rabbi Poster, Way Too Stupid, and Romney-Ryan, Way Too Stupid, Genuinely and Fervently oppose! All such supportive all oppose!

    No more Profits: That is their brand. Cut the taxes only for the rich, to bail out only European Luxury Auto Manufacturers! Cut no taxes for the 47% with no federal income tax liability! Do not encourage any spending in the stores!

    Even toward the bottom of the Wall Street Journal: Optimism is all they have. For The Economy: Romney-Ryan-Rabbi-Poster Types, Intend To Do Nothing! Those supporter tpes are only Intending return to financial crisis!

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    (Too much smoke from too little fire--show only tiny space of brains in Two Stupid White Eyes, Way Too Stupid!)

    So when CNN keeps declaring every Obama lead to be a tie, that's pandering? When Romney had the same leads, CNN was crowing about Romney's unstoppable Romentum.

    No, idiot. WHen the press touts higher unemployment as good because it means more people are entering the workforce, but lower unemployment as also good, even though more people are leaving the workforce, that is pandering to get Obama re-elected. They can't both be good.

    Now you have to be honest (lol you know that I know you're a liar, but I digress) and explain the number of government employees who lost their jobs, impacting the raw number.

    Fortunately, this endemic bias has just about killed the political influence of the press in this country. Anyone genuinely interested in current events uses alternative news outlets. The only means remaining for the Left are movies and social media, and people who are influenced by those outlets are generally too clueless to register, much less vote.

    I dont have to do anything of the sort, you cocksucker. YOU have to explain why it's good news when the UE rate goes up, and it's good news when the UE rate goes down.
