Reporting on jobs favors Obama

Success - Article sent! close

In your Oct. 6 Business section under the headline "Big jump in jobs" it states that there had been an increase of 873,000 jobs in September. Where did you get this 873,000 number? Every other news outlet, including the Wall Street Journal, reported that 114,000 jobs were created in September, not 873,000.

Our incompetent president seems proud of the fact that we're allegedly right back to where we started from when he took office. The alleged .3 percent drop in unemployment is due to people dropping out of the jobs market altogether or taking part-time work. Your false headline was written solely to help this incompetent president's reelection. News should be nonpartisan and not contain distorted lies.
