    It's called a feed.

    Same mechanism that NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, the NY Times, and the rest of the DNC controlled media use to all come up with the same breaking stories.

    I believe the Census Bureau works with the Department of Labor to conduct the unemployment surveys of households. The national census or full population count is conducted every 10 years.
    Why don't they get the job data from the companies doing the hiring instead of "households".

    I thought the unemployment numbers came from those claiming "unemployment" at the unemployment office not household surveys.

    That makes sense. I mean why wouldn't a tabloid like the NYPost have an RSS feed just like the real news does?

    Yes, anonymous sources can be used to fabricate stories but without evidence confirming that you're simply making an assumption based on your own biases.

    How are you gonna get unemployment data from companies? How do companies know who's looking for work? For unemployment numbers, they use household surveys. For job growth numbers, they use companies.

    I would prefer the story came from a source that didn't have a 44% not credible to 39% credible rating by it's own readers and is part of the "dog pile" right wing echo chamber.

    So often people use terms they don't understand - the further to the left, the more common this is...

    Of course a "tabloid" is a publication that pays for source information. The Post is no more of a "tabloid" than the Times, but since the Times clears stories with the party prior to publication, you seek to smear the Post.

    I also notice that you offer nothing to support the contention that the story is accurate - instead you offer just a backhand smear.

    I understand, slander, libel, and demagoguery are the mainstay of the shameful left.

    The NYPost is a tabloid and not a credible news source. So yes, I guess I'm a bit more picky on what I base my opinion on than you.


    How are you gonna get unemployment data from companies? How do companies know who's looking for work? For unemployment numbers, they use household surveys. For job growth numbers, they use companies.
    I said job data...you know as in "hiring".

    I always thought the unemployment numbers come from "unemployment claims". Polling 60,000 households to represent the entire unemployment rate would seem easy to skew.

    Skewing the job numbers is a pretty serious allegation so I"m going to wait until a credible news source weighs in. But thats just me...ya'll go ahead and believe whatever you want because you will anyway.

    Gotta love the always in denial mode of the -ists. Lies are not lies with them, failure is never failure with them as long as it supports Obama somehow.
