If anyone knows any high level Republicans and conservatives, can you please help me teach them that we must create our own avenues for information to flow so we can lower the number of low information voters? Can you ask them to stop waiting for the liberal, dishonest press to give them and their message a fair shake?
On Friday morning the Chicago Tribune sent out this email alert regarding a “breaking story”:
It was easy to guess how excited that news editor must have been at the Trib; “Our man Barack is succeeding!”
At the same moment, the headline at the Drudge Report gave the real story:
Matt Drudge certainly has his own biases, but he also has a good sense of humor. It’s easy to assume he saw that morning’s liberal media headlines, read the reports, and then wrote his own headline.
Liberal Bloomberg’s headline was funny too, in a different way:
Hiring in U.S. Kicks Into Higher Gear as Unemployment Plunges to 6.3%
Here’s the opening sentence:
The job-creation engine kicked into higher gear as U.S. employers boosted payrolls in April by the most in two years and the jobless rate plunged to the lowest since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
Yippee! God save the king!
If you stuck with the article until paragraph nine you learn why the “plunge” in the percentage:
The drop in the unemployment rate from March’s 6.7 percent came as the agency’s survey of households showed the labor force shrank by more the 800,000 in April. The so-called participation rate, which indicates the share of working-age people in the labor force, decreased to 62.8 percent, matching the lowest level since 1978, from 63.2 percent a month earlier.
Anyone who is serious about learning the facts has had plenty of time to understand that the Obama-era version of the unemployment rate is not what it was pre-Obama. More people give up looking for work, drop out of the work force, and we allow the lying bureaucrats to pretend things are getting better by playing games with the numbers.
Unfortunately, most Americans don’t have the energy or interest in putting in the time necessary to find out if the media is being honest. Many if not most take in the headlines and opening paragraphs at best. The press knows that they can hide the facts later in their reports.
Those who get their news and information elsewhere know the truth. Many articles have been linked at my website over the years about what the Department of Labor is doing with the unemployment rate (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here for examples — and that’s not even all of them). The mainline news media’s lies and deceptions reach most Americans. The conservative press reaches its relatively small audience with the truth. And the cycle repeats.
All the while Republican and conservatives expect change to miraculously take place despite the fact that they continue to do an absolutely lousy job of reaching the uninformed and misinformed with the facts. Of course this is only one issue — Republicans and conservatives are losing the information war when it comes to almost everything.
People will usually believe what they want to believe. This should be obvious though — if voters want to know the truth but they never hear it, how can they support it?
All by design.....
Anyone besides me remember the economy under Jimmy Carter. Look at the dates on these.
"The so-called participation rate, which indicates the share of working-age people in the labor force, decreased to 62.8 percent, matching the lowest level since 1978, from 63.2 percent a month earlier."
Anytime liberals get into power they screw up anything they touch !
Oh well, to be redundant "LIARS FIGURE and FIGURES LIE".
If the GOP wins the Senate and maintains the House, or we get a Republican President, then the Liberals in Congress & the Media will demand that we put out the "REAL" unemployment numbers.
The GOP & FOX and Conservative talk radio needs to keep hammering the true unemployment numbers and the number that quit seeking employment.
92 million people are out of work, and the jobs people are getting are those jobs with less than 30 hours per week....so because of all the failed socialist programs that Obama wants...he thinks that raising the minimum wage will do something..other than getting the democrats more votes..it will not do anything for the economy..and put the burden on the backs of the small businesses...and now china has surpassed us as the leading economic power (bet you will not see that on cnn or msnbc)...and the real unemployment rate is actuall 15 to 25 percent.......so in just 5 short years, Obama has destroyed a 140 plus years of the united states being the worlds economic leader in the world.
Perhaps, Conservatives and Republicans are loosing the war on information because of the bias in news that does filter any conservatives thoughts. It's well documented that CBS, NBC and other networks like Univision, filter out anything that is conservatives. However they press on anything that is liberal and progressive. Today's news are not news is combination of editorial frame work put as news. if democrats have something to win, it is in the publication of bias news.
Liars, period....either by ignorance or omission.
