Making molehills out of mountains

It used to be you simply opened a newspaper or clicked on a news article online and read it.  Your mind would be focused on the information but you wouldn't have to actually work at deciphering and picking part word after word for double-talk and agenda.  

Now, if you read news on this Great Recession, those skills are a Must!

From Reuters:  "New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly climbed to 424,000 last week from a revised 414,000 in the prior week, pointing to a painfully slow improvement in the nation's job markets... Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast that claims last week would decline to 400,000, rather than rise. "

~  Did you catch that contradiction?  Did you see how the article manipulates?

So... New U.S claims for unemployment benefits...  as in people who've applied for the First Time this week (people who never were counted before in unemployment statistics because they were only Just fired)... well it Unexpectedly Climbed..  Three years later and unemployment still Climbs..  and yet..  Reuters says it points to a painfully slow "Improvement" in the nation's job markets.

There are hundreds of articles like this Every Single Days coming from AP, Reuters, CNBC, etc..  and All of them have a specific agenda-- get you to believe this nation is in "recovery" so you will go out and spend again and so you the public continue being docile in the face of Non-Stop negative economic news on joblessness, falling home values, unstable oil prices, rises in other commodities, 14+ Trillion National Debt, etc...

The media wants you informed on their terms & they want you dumb and numb.  Don't react.. don't take any control of your life.. simply accept the narrative that every Bad piece of news that occurs will not affect the "recovery"

Cock-a-doodle-doo my friends... ~bangs on pans..  Really gotta wake up now...
