CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch

The latest employment numbers were very good news, with 288,000 new jobs created and the unemployment rate falling to 6.1 percent. But what's good news for the economy under a Democratic president is bad news for, so it had a mission: Bury that good news under a pile of cherry-picked numbers.

And CNS did just that with an onslaught of articles:

None of these articles mentioned the fact that 288,000 jobs were created in June. 

Additionally, an article by Penny Starr quoted an officials with the right-wing group Generation Opportunity -- described by Starr only as "a Millinneal think tank" with no mention of its ideological slant -- claiming that “My generation needs more jobs." That article, too, failed to mention that 288,000 jobs were created in June.
