Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Night and Day, “How the MSM reports unemployment numbers when presidents of different parties are running for re-election” edition

The Right Sphere has the MSM dead to rights on this one.  Night…

Take a look at these headlines:

The President’s Jobless Recovery
Frustrated Job Seekers Cause Jobless Rate To Drop
Economy Adds Few New Jobs
Low Jobless Rate Reflects Lost Hope
US Jobless Rate Drops But For Wrong Reasons

Recent headlines regarding the drop in the unemployment rate from 9% to 8.6% right?

Wrong.

Those are headlines from January 2004, when the jobless rate dropped to 5.7% and when President Bush was just starting a re-election campaign.

…and day…

Here are headlines from Friday’s job numbers:

Unemployment Rate Drops To 8.6% Raising Hopes
Jobless Rate Drop Could Boost Obama
Obama Gets Economic Indicator He Can Crow About
Good News On Job Front For Obama
Jobless Rate Lowest In 2.5 Years

The jobless rate in November fell 0.4%…because 300,000 unemployed gave up and dropped out of the job search market!  The unemployment rate doesn’t count these people.

Let’s say I ask four girls out on a date, and all four tell me to drop dead.  Let’s say I do this every week, and the results are always the same.  I’ve got a 100% failure record.  But let’s say that one of these girls finally gets tired of me asking her out, so she stops answering her phone and simply ignores me.  Oh, joy!  I just got a 25% reduction in the “uninterested in Crush” rate, because she’s not turning me down anymore!  Sure, she is still uninterested, but I’m just not gonna count her anymore, because she gave up answering me.

That’s what the unemployment numbers are doing.  Sure, they still are unemployed, but because they’re not even going to bother looking anymore, we can stop counting them as unemployed.  Friggin’ brilliant.

As for the reporting?  Nope…no liberal media bias!

  3. Crush, great analogy. The Jobless Claims number also is reflective of the increase in seasonal hiring that traditionally happens in November and December. All those workers will be back unemployed come January. How will the MSM spin that?

  4. And they know DARN well that the seasonal workers are all temporary…just like they knew the census workers were all temporary. They know full well what they are doing, and it makes me mad enough to bite nails in half…especially because they totally get away with it!

  5. […] fell from 9.0% to 8.6%.  Impressive…except that while 112,000 people found jobs, over 300,000 people gave up looking for work.  The unemployment numbers no longer count people who have exhausted their unemployment benefits […]
