The government shutdown delayed release of the monthly unemployment numbers for a few weeks, but now that they're finally out, CNSNews.com has worked its usual cherry-picking magic to play up unfavorable numbers and hide the favorable ones.
The barrage this time around comes from Terry Jeffrey and Ali Meyer:
- 90,609,000: Americans Not in Labor Force Climbs to Another Record
- 154,000 Fewer Women Held Jobs in September; Female Participation in Labor Force Matches 24-Year Low
- Gov’t & Finance Workers Tie for Lowest Unemployment Rate
In only one of the articles is it mentioned that unemployment went down and the number of jobs went up, and that's buried in the 9th paragraph.
