NBC Nightly News Shocker: Nearly 2/3 of Jobs Created This Year Are Part-Time

Post  fshnski on Sat Sep 07, 2013 6:03 pm

Two months ago, NewsBusters asked when the Obama-loving media would get around to reporting the poor quality of jobs being created in this economy.

On Friday, the NBC Nightly News did just that in a surprising segment that included a reporter actually saying, "Of the eight hundred forty-eight thousand jobs created this year, nearly two thirds are part-time"

"To be honest, I'm having a hard time determining where NBC got this data from."

The on-screen graphic said "BLS," but I show somewhat different numbers using both the Establishment and Household surveys.

In addition, last month our friend at Zero Hedge calculated that 77 percent of the jobs created through July 31 were part-time.

Regardless, it was still astonishing to see NBC News file this report.

Maybe if they and other outlets had shared this information with the public during last year's presidential campaign, the results would have been different.

I guess the folks at NBC feel comfortable reporting such bad economic news to the public in an off-election year.

Now that they can't hurt Obama by telling the truth, maybe they will tell the truth for a change. That would be refreshing.

If you mean we need a press that is less partisan I agree.
