CNS Repeats Bogus Claim About Obama Administration Salaries

At, a good lie about President Obama is always worth repeating.

In a June 10 CNS blog post, Joe Schoffstall wrote that "The White House is calling for the passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act, citing that women earn just 77 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts," but "the Obama Administration doesn't seem to live up to its own words; as men are paid 13 percent more than women in the administration."

As we pointed out when CNS' Fred Lucas made the same exact claim earlier this year that Schoffstall regurgitates, PolitiFact detailed how the simple salary division by gender is that it doesn't take into account the types of jobs being done and the much more important question of whether women are making the same as men for the same job. In most of the White House job categories held by more than one person, most show no difference between pay for men and women, eight categories showed a man slightly outearning a woman, and six categories showed a woman outearning a man.

But apparently, as long as the misleading statistics bash Obama, that's whaty Schoffstall and CNS will run with.
