My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Eventually Reality MUST Intrude On Bias

This was originally going to be a post about how the liberal media spins the news. To my surprise, the obvious comparison reversed what I would have expected:

WashPost: The U.S. job market strengthened last year, as employers added 2 million jobs and the unemployment rate fell to 4.9 percent in December, the Labor Department reported Friday. The data reinforced other signs that the economy was growing at a healthy pace as it entered the new year despite the turmoil caused by hurricanes and higher energy prices.

WashTimes: Job gains slowed abruptly last month to 108,000 after surging in November, reflecting a lackluster Christmas hiring season and a slowdown in home building, the Labor Department reported yesterday.

Not how I would have expected the coverage to break down, but the essential facts are all there: the job market is solid, unemployment is low, and the overall economy is robust.

Gee, maybe we should listen to Harry Reid now and change all the policies that got us to this point.
