CNS Is Still Hiding Good Unemployment News From Its Readers

The U.S. added 175,000 jobs in May, though the unemployment rate went up because of people re-entering the work force. That's good news, but you wouldn't have known that if you read

Instead, a June 7 CNS article by Elizabeth Harrington led with how "the total number of government workers in the United States increased by 92,000." Harrington failed to put that in context by mentioning the fact that public-sector employment had been on a steady decline since 2007.

Harrington downplayed the fact that more Americans entered the work force by repeating the utterly irrelevant statistic that "the 89,705,000 who were not in the labor force in May was still enough to fill every Major League Baseball stadium simultaneously, 69 times."

Harrington made no mention whatsoever of the 175,000 new private-secvtor jobs.

Harrington's biased reporting keep with CNS' agenda of downplaying any improvement in American employment under President Obama.
