Headline after headline is portraying the economy as gaining 71,000 private sector jobs. For example, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is portraying this headline:
Private employers added 71,000 jobs in July; unemployment rate unchanged at 9.5 percent
The reality is the economy lost 131,000. There was no overall job growth whatsoever.
I understand that the media is carrying President Obama's and the Democrats' water for them.
But seriously, do they really think they are fooling anybody with half a brain?
