CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch

It's a new month, and new unemployment numbers are out, so you know what that means -- it's time for to distort those numbers.

Ali Meyer ably distorts in a March 7 article headlined "February: 223,000 More Unemployed Individuals."  Meyer didn't mention that 175,000 jobs were created in February, and the increase in unemployed individuals is because more people joined the labor force.

Meyer's two other articles also failed to mention that 175,000 jobs were created last month, or that the increase in the unemployment rate was driven by people entering the work force. Instead, they focused on cherry-picked statistics like "Black Teen Unemployment 32.4%" and "February: Women Unemployed Up 36,000."
