    Would you prefer the media to hype any good news and soft pedal any bad so as to increase consumer confidence and encourage more spending and thus possibly improve the economy?

    I'm waiting to see how UE does when they downsize the Army and Marines.

    Be plenty of vets on the UE lines.

    Like to see em soft pedal that.

    its a moderate uptick and under 400k, which is considered tolerable.

    The AP's version of the story, as relayed in the Washington Post:

    Weekly applications for unemployment benefits jump to 399,000 because of seasonal layoffs - The Washington Post

    I would prefer accurate reporting of the news without the constant shill for the Obama campaign.
