  • 23rd Straight Month of Job Growth---Faux News's Take:



    So, unemployment is now at 8.3 percent again...bad..very bad, but good comparatively.

    I think that numbers like these will help cement Obama's win in 2012, but things can turn around. I also think the republicans are just slashing the achilles tendons of each other during the primaries.

    What do you guys think?

        I love it when they claim that every other media outlet therefor must be crazy liberal since their facts counter what Fox news has to say. People seem to forget Rupert Murdoch built his empire on tabloid magazines like Star magazine. Their lack of journalism or proper research/editorial is echoed on Murdoch's pet news corps as well. Heck even the Wall Street Journal has been printing loads of crap lately.

          Canadas unemployment rate is 7.6% (roughly 2.5 million people of 35 million) and America's is 8.3% (roughly 25.5 million of 305 million). 25.5 million divided by 10, is roughly 2.5 million. We're in the same boat my friend, in the same boat.

          I learnt about misleading graphs in highschool, prime example of one right here. Funny how many people would take a look at that and not really even realize that it was infact, upside down. They would just see declination in the bars and immediately think there is a huge loss of jobs.

                Unemplyoment in Sweden is at 7.4 % (according to google) with a population of cirka 9-10 million and that is considered pretty bad, if Obama creates some more jobs over here he'll get my vote :)

                  With Fox News' track record, it's very very hard to tell the difference on whether they reported that exact photo, or simply a similar sentiment.

                      I love scale. That's a drop of about 2.5% of the workforce. Big, but not that.

                          So.. according to the RSC, the recession ended in June of 2009?

                          Man, I wish I lived in that world...

                          As far as the percentage of people in the workforce, it seems that we may have had more jobs created if the tea party republicans hadn't filibustered virtually every attempt by Obama at making jobs.

                              That's the point I was making.

                              Just because some economist's have said the recession ended, doesn't mean that a large portion of the population aren't still suffering from the symptoms of a recession.
