CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch (With Added Sponsorship)
Topic: recently started added a tag at the end of some of its stories:

The business and economic reporting of is funded in part with a gift made in memory of Dr. Keith C. Wold.

In practice, that means CNS has even more resources to cherry-pick economic data to make President Obama look bad.

So here's the monthly onslaught of cherry-picked stories CNS published about the latest unemployment numbers, with the headlines pretty much telling it all:

None of these six articles mention that 204,000 jobs were created in October.

Also, the "real unemployment rate" CNS references is a fallacy. Because it includes people who are working part-time but would like to find a full-time position, it cannot possibly be an "unemployment" rate.

One has to wonder: Is Dr. Keith C. Wold spinning in his grave because his money is going toward creating such biased and fallacious reporting?
