The Media Research Center's Julia Seymour complains in an April 10 post:
A fuzzy animal, faulty directions and famous murderers all outranked the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS announced on April 6, that the U.S. added 103,000 jobs in March and unemployment remained low. However, the more than 25 million combined viewers of the broadcast networks' evening shows weren’t notified that night.
Seymour apparently didn't notice how her colleagues at the MRC's "news" division, CNSNews.com, covered the story of March's job numbers. The 103,000 number was considered such a disappointment that it wasn't even mentioned until the 11th paragraph of CNS' main story on it; instead, the CNS headline claim was that a record number of women were employed. Other CNS stories promoted increasing manufacturing jobs and declining government jobs -- not the total number of jobs created.
It seems the networks may have been doing the Trump administration a favor by not reporting on the lackluster job numbers. Seyour and her fellow pro-Trumpers at the MRC should probably be thanking them.
