CNS Unemployment Numbers Distortion Watch

It's a new month, and you know what that means: Time for to bury the good news and cherry-pick any bad news about the latest unemployment numbers.

For September, the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent with 248,000 jobs created. By contrast, this is what CNS reported:

Only one of these articles noted the drop in the unemployment rate (and even then not until the sixth paragraph), and none mentioned the fact that 248,000 jobs were added. All three articles were written by Ali Meyer

That first story, by the way, is a lazy rewrite of an article from last month by Meyer, which carried the suspiciously similar headline "Record 92,269,000 Not in Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low." That's a demonstration of how CNS reports an agenda instead of reporting the news.
