Media Jobs Distorters
Worse Than Truthers

Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/7/2012 5:54:21 AM

Predictably, skeptics about the federal jobs numbers released yesterday are being labeled as “jobs truthers” in many quarters. Those alleging a flat-out conspiracy are being treated as nutcases. As Politico notes, even some Republicans are trying to throw cold water on the theories being floated that assert the unemployment rate is only declining because of an effort to cook the figures to benefit President Obama. The skeptics, like former GE CEO Jack Welch and Rep. Alan West, are taking a beating in the press. Though the dip in unemployment is both anomalous in terms

Nutcase = any journalist doing 4 years of cover-up for president Jim Jones.

After the debate totally exposed Obama as the Empty Suit of the Oval Office, his planners suddenly produced miraculous numbers in employment statistics. It was a 'wow moment' to behold.

Unfortunately, Obama is now viewed more as an example from Aesop's Fables than as a world leader. He has called wolf too many times to be believable about ANYthing any more.

Do the math. To drop the unemployment numbers by .3% requires an addition of over 400,000 people added to the workforce.
The Dept of Labor says there were 114,000 added.

Somebody is lying! And guess who it is... again.

IF there is a tick up in the economy, it is due to back to school, off to college or early Christmas shopping. Nothing the idiot in the wh did.

If Romney gets elected you will see the unemployment numbers shoot up to 11 - 12% unexpectedly of course.

The media can "spin" all they want -- but -- the "real" folk out here are hurting -- big time....

THEY know the real numbers.

No one believes the goooooberment anymore. The numbers have been massaged and manipulated in regards to the obamacare mess, the pork and trade, the census, the tax and the BO's polls numbers.

No one believes the media anymore.....

Many of us predicted months ago that the unemployment numbers would miraculously improve just prior to the election. Aside from the fact that Team Chicago is in charge, the method of producing these numbers (telephone survey) makes it absurdly easy to do so, and do it without a verifiable trace. So they can now be indignant about anyone's claim of fraud, and know that nobody has a means to refute their phony numbers.

They are masters at last minute games of deception.

I saw somewhere in the Drudge Report that the supposed 7.8% figure comes from the labor department conveniently adding in a 586,000-block of part-time temporary service jobs.

The PT jobs at little over minimum wage aren't close to bringing INCOME back to where people can even cover the price of gasoline and food...let alone pay mortgage payments and save for retirement. This is all prop-a-Ganda for The Won, as we know, but the new wave of layoffs due to the robbery of what money the populace has left by the Feds beginning in January will essentially finish the job...any moron can see that!

No one can look at the numbers and believe that they are accurate. The verifiable report from businesses showed 114,000 jobs added. The so-called survey of 60,000 households determined that more than 800,000, almost 900,000, jobs were magically added!. The two widely disparate numbers were combined to give us the drop in unemployment, during a month that always sees that number go up.

Name calling is one of the liberals key defences. It's called the "ad hominem" argument. In other words, dismiss the other party as not even worth listening to. What else would you expect.

Obama lies.

We all know these numbers are false. Walk about your nearest strip mall and count the closed storefronts. How many Help Wanted signs have you seen?

The problem with this is that it is Federal Government bureaucracy has been corrupted to service Obama. These statistics come from the Department of Labor so there are many accomplices.

A similar thing happened in Science. The Global Warming hoax is proclaimed as true, even by Federal agencies.

We must vote these liars out.

I am really having a difficult time with the general tone of posts on this topic. I don't know why this group of people are so unable to see Obama's intended cause and effect. Back in July or early August sometime this administration announced that it would no longer require people receiving federal aid to look for work. Thus, huge numbers of people quit looking for work. Now, the federal government does not have to count them in the unemployment rate. The rate takes a precipitous drop just in time to influence the elections. It has been a very straight line for me to follow. It also gives the government employees the "cover" to say that they did not do anything wrong or cook any books.

A newsperson on television described what constitutes "work" in the household employment survey: 50,000 householders are surveyed; they are asked whether they have a job; if they respond that they collect cans or bottles for the deposit, or sell stuff on e-bay, that constitutes a job. The results of the survey sample are then extrapolated onto the US population as a whole.

So, if the newsperson on TV was correct, we are a nation of trash pickers and used goods sellers.

of course they are in deep doo-doo. They completely belong to the leftist cabal, and whoever honest people there are, are grinding their teeth, suck it up and swallow. What else can they do if they want to get their paychecks.
But going to five morning shows and lying about benghazi - this is selling your soul to the devil!
But my major point was - until we have proletariat dictatorship with obozo-like leader, media will be like that. It is not actually a media; it is part of propaganda department.

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards returned to the courtroom in North Carolina this week. Edwards, before entering politics as a senator from North Carolina, shot to prominence as a personal injury lawyer in the state and restarted his practice late last year. In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case. The Virginia boy was three months old during a hospital visit in 2009 and “the hospital is accused of failing to ensure the baby received adequate oxygen, resulting in a brain injury,” according to

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

A new Obama administration privacy policy released Friday explains how the government will gather the user data of online visitors to WhiteHouse.gov, mobile apps and social media sites, and it clarifies that online comments, whether tirades or tributes, are in the open domain. "Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama Administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors.

Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
