MEDIA BIAS: Chris Matthews Says Unemployment Was Well Past 10% When Obama Took Office, Um Sorry Tingles, It Was Only 7.8%
More MSM Bias and lies …
Chris “Tingle Up My Leg” Matthews continues the MSM propaganda for Barack Obama and continues to spew a false narrative of actual facts that existed prior to Obama coming into office. Matthews stated that the unemployment rate was over 10% and skyrocketing. Really, over 10%? Interestingly enough the facts show that the unemployment rate was 7.8% when he took office. Actually, this was the lowest that the unemployment rate has been during the Obama Presidency as we have had 43+ months at +8%, event though Obama and his minions promised it would go below 8% after passing his trillion dollar, not shovel ready stimulus.
“When your guy left town, Dubya – who nobody asked him to come back by the way at the Republican convention – unemployment was well past ten percent and skyrocketing.”
Matthews stated that the unemployment rate was over 10% and skyrocketing when his Obamamessiah took office. That is just a false statement and intended lie to put forth to the American people to deceive them. According to the US Labor Department the unemployment rate was 7.8%. So why would Tingles feel the need to lie? Obviously, the MSM has to aid Obama to get reelected despite Obama’s terrible economic record and failed policies to help create job growth in America.
Question, how does NBC allow such a statement by Matthews to be put forth and not responded to as false? Of course this is coming from a news network that allowed the doctored and edited tape to be put forth of the George Zimmerman 911 call. But when the skewing of the news and out right lies benefit Obama, mums the word. The Lonely Conservative has more from
MSNBC MSU news.
UPDATE I: However, as reported at ZeroHedge.com the real Unemployment Rate hits 11.7% as spread between the reported and propaganda data hits record.
Today’s reported unemployment rate: 8.1%. The reason: the labor “participation” dropped to a 31 year low 63.5% as reported earlier. Of course, this number is pure propaganda, and makes no sense for one simple reason: despite the economic collapse started in December 2007, the US civilian non-institutional population since then has grown by 186,000 people every month on average hitting an all time high of 243,566,000 in August. These people need a job, and the traditional shorthand is that at least 100,000 jobs have the be generated every month for the unemployment rate to merely stay flat, let along improve. So what does one get when one uses the long-term average of the past 30 or so years which happens to be 65.8%? One gets an unemployment number that is 45% higher than the reported 8.1%, or 11.7%.
