    Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report

    Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report | New York Post

    Honestly, who didnt already "know" this?

    Most of us had our sneaky suspicions this was and is the case, now the truth is coming to light....and yet there are those of you that arent bothered by this...
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    It just amazes me how the NYPost, The Blaze, Brietbart, PJMedia, American Thinker, and a slew of rightwing blogs can all come out with the same breaking story on the same day.

    Would you prefer the story not be reported at all?

    Yep. If MSNBC ignores it then it did not happen.

    Why does it amaze you? It happens with the NYTimes, The Huffington Post, DailyKos, Democratic Underground, etc as well. The ideological driven publications generally lead most stories these days one way or the other. Considering the source is anonymous right now, not surprising it hasn't gotten legs. I'm sure right now there is a Congressional staffer tracking this guy down.

    There is no shocker here. It was already revealed that one of the reasons the employment numbers looked 'better' was because several states didnt bother submitting their numbers. Add to the mix the fact that they simply stop counting people after they exhaust their benefits and its easy to see we simply dont know just how bad it all is.

    Well since the whole unemployment number is based on information received from companies via a poll basically, then I would suspect that the hard core conservative run companies would do exactly the same, just in the opposite way.

    I would prefer credible organizations report on something. Those far-right bloggers straight up lie all the time. I mean, you wouldn't just accept an article that came up on DU, written by Michael Moore, and reported by AddictingInfo, would you?

    The "anonymous" source is huge problem for the credibility of the story, imo. Until we know who the source is.....meh.



    Btw, aren't job numbers reported quarterly? I thought the US census was taken every ten years, not quarterly.

    Anonymous sources aren't uncommon in reporting, particularly in government if its someone in fear of reprisal.

    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.
