CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch
Topic: CNSNews.com

It's a new month, which means it's time once again for CNSNews.com to find ways to avoid reporting good news about the economy.

In July, 209,000 jobs were added, but that's not what you read at CNS. Instead, CNS played another round of talking down the economy:

Number of Unemployed Women Increased in July by 227,000

11,472,000 Americans Have Left Workforce Since Obama Took Office

Neither article mentions that 227,000 jobs were created. That last article, by Ali Meyer, fails to mention one significant factor in the dropping labor participation rate: baby boomers are retiring.
