The Fake News Media is at it again. After the release of the booming April jobs report, the Washington Post decided to post a very misleading headline early in the morning that read “Trump faces string of setbacks to his efforts to juice U.S. economy.”
But this headline was completely wrong considering the jobs report was very strong for President Trump. The Washington Post was forced to change the headline to, “U.S. 263,000 jobs in April, beating expectations as record hiring streak continues.”
The U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April, notching a record 103 straight months of job gains and signaling the current economic expansion shows little sign of stalling.
The unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the Labor Department said Friday, the lowest since 1969. The official unemployment rate has been at or below 4 percent for more than a year.
The worst part about this mess up by the post is that the two headlines were on the website at the same time for 24 minutes.
Breitbart reported, “But by 9:39 the Washington Post‘s editors dropped the “juice” word, and posted a new front-page headline to the pessimistic article: “Trump faces string of setbacks to his efforts to intervene in U.S. economy.””
Even though the jobs report was great for President Trump, the Post still decided downplay the President’s accomplishments.
Mounting GOP opposition torpedoed conservative commentator Stephen Moore’s candidacy as a Federal Reserve Board governor Thursday, the latest in a string of setbacks that reveal hardening limitations on President Trump’s attempts to intervene in the economy.
Despite his efforts, Trump has failed to arrest rising gasoline prices and demonstrated little influence over Senate Republicans and Fed officials when he has demanded leaders heed his directives for managing the global economy.
Trump’s effort to plant Moore on the Fed board was another in a string of attempts to use executive authority and the bully pulpit in ways that could goose the economy heading into the 2020 election.
REAL NEWS Organizations like Breitbart reported the positives of the jobs report. Check out what they said.
The U.S. economy created 263,000 jobs in April and the unemployment rate dropped to 3.6 percent, the Labor Department said Friday.
That far exceeded the 180,000 estimated by economists surveyed by Econoday and follows a better than expected surge in April. Economists had expected the unemployment rate to hold steady at 3.8 percent.
Unemployment is at the lowest level since December 1969 when it hit 3.5 percent.
he good news on wages continued in April as well. Average hourly earnings rose by 6 cents to $27.77. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 3.2 percent. Inflation is running at 1.5 percent, so real average hourly earnings have gone up by 1.7 percent.
It’s time for the Fake News Media to report REAL News instead of doing everything they can to hammer President Trump.
