More Good Economic News The Media is Surpressing


Here is some more economic news the media is trying to keep under the radar screen until the election is over.

Wages and benefits paid to American workers rose last quarter by the most since 2004, as the unemployment rate matched a five-year low.

The Labor Department said Tuesday that its employment cost index rose 1 percent compared with the second quarter. In the 12 months ended in September, costs shot up 3.3 percent, the biggest year-over-year advance since the first quarter of 2005. via the  Chicago Tribune.

Imagine if there was a President Kerry right now, and the media had all this economic good news going into the elections. Do you think they would be downplaying it the same way? Or would it lead like it did during the Clinton years. Never forget the media has an agenda.

      Most of us who care, know about this, but the good thing is that Kerry and his moronic quote is being played and replayed in the media today, Too funny anymore how he tried to blame it on Bush….I think it may do him well to apologize to our military and STHU.
