It's the Economy, Stupid?

Well... shame on the New York Times... I cannot
remember a month in which the new employment statistics did not appear on the top of their website's front page. Instead, it is relegated to a featured section at the bottom of the web page. I wonder if it has anything to do with the election... let's try not to be too ashamed of the economy.

And on to Fox News... whose presentation of the recent job numbers is equally as partisan, if not effusive. "Bush Blasts Dems on Economy" is not a Headline that I would characterize as Fair and Balanced.

I was at least a little relieved that PRI's Marketplace had a lengthy discussion about the job numbers, although... the program is supposed to report on the economy. Not to mention the low job creation rate for October was seen as signs that the economy is clearly on the verge of dire straits and possibly recession.
