    White House Blasts AP for Story Alleging Gov't Overstated Stimulus Jobs 'by Thousands' - Political News - FOXNews.com


    The Obama administration on Thursday slammed a report from The Associated Press alleging the government had overstated by thousands the number of jobs it has created or saved with federal contracts under President Obama's $787 billion recovery program.

    The White House seized on an initial report from a government oversight board weeks ago that claimed federal contracts awarded to businesses under the recovery plan already had helped pay for more than 30,000 jobs. The administration said the number was evidence that the stimulus program had exceeded early expectations toward reaching the president's promise of creating or saving 3.5 million jobs by the end of next year.

    But the 30,000 figure is overstated by thousands -- at the very least by nearly 5,000, or one in six, based on AP's limited review of some of the contracts -- because some federal agencies and recipients of the money provided incorrect job counts. The review found some counts were more than 10 times as high as the actual number of jobs; some jobs were credited to stimulus spending when, in fact, none were produced.

    The AP was fact checking a story? You mean like journalists are SUPPOSED to do? After you lie/spin/misinform to the public for awhile, that sort of thing happens. All Obama has is the far left and the media. This is going to get ugly fast.

    Wow even some in the Liberal Press are finally waking up. This is good news for our nation. Looks like it's time for Hopey Changey to declare War on AP next. Hopefully at some point there won't be anyone left in the Media for them to declare War on. It's been incredibly slow to happen but some in the Liberal Press are waking up. They like to boast about "Controlling the Media" and for the most part they have been right but it looks like their control is now beginning to slip.

    Right.

    This is just so fucking pathetic. The WH can immediately act on a media report, but can't decide about what to do in a fucking war?

    WTF?

    Barryland over played their hand when they boasted about controlling the media.

    The media saw themselves as a PARTNER with Barry, and Barry & freinds tell the world they are puppets on a string.

    In short, hubris strikes again.

    Soldiers they don't give a fuck about, but opinion polls, well, that matters.

    Fox and the Associated Press are in the dog house now, just wait until the Sunday morning talk shows. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but it seems the tide is turning and they are actually looking at the facts and the numbers and not just repeating the White House propaganda. It's about damn time and Hooray for them!!!!:clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2:

    It is evident from this article, that the no stimulus stimulus bill is RIPE for FRAUD, just wait until all the facts start spilling out. I loved the one about the day care center giving her employee's a 3.9% cost of living raise because she was losing her employee's to other jobs. HELL, there are NO OTHER jobs.
