    Despite What the Media Says, New Unemployment Claims Ticked Up to 367K | Red Dog Report

    Every week this year the BLS had to revise unemployment up.
    What are the odds that they couldn't get it right one time, or revised it down just one time?
    I'm smelling Tuna, and it isn't pleasant. Why do you ask? Because the media picks up on the reported claims each week, but really doesn't follow up with real facts using the revised numbers the following week. Obama just looks better and better with fraudulent numbers, imo.

    They do it all the time...and barely a whisper in the Mainstream Media protecting Obama.

    Good find.

    Seems odd doesn't it, that the numbers are ALWAYS revised upwards. What really bugs me though, is the notion that if you stop looking for a job then you don't count as an unemployed person.

    It's called the "jobless non-recovery" that's all Bush's fault.

    It's a shell game.

    The initial numbers are widely reported. Revision aren't.

    DUH, Presidents always play this silly game. They know that many more people will see and Remember the Initial Reports, than will ever notice the Corrections announced later. with out fail since Obama has been in Office. Both with the GDP numbers, and Unemployment numbers, they have Reported numbers that look better then later revise them down. Each and every quarter.


    Nothing but dishonest leadership, Par for the Course.
