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.
