CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com apparently believes that December's unemployment numbers were sufficiently substandard that it didn't need to do much rooting through them to cherry-pick data to obscure good news.

CNS devoted only two stories to the December numbers. The first, by Susan Jones, carried the headline "Hiring Slows in December; Only 74,000 Jobs Added, Fewest in 3 Years." This is the first time in recent memory that CNS put the jobs-added number in the headline; normally, it buries that number because it contradicts CNS' narrative of running down the economy under Obama.

The second article, by Ali Meyer, is more along the lines of CNS' usual cherry-picking, carring the headline "20,000 Fewer Women Held Jobs in December."
