Media struggling to find something bad to say about Trump’s job numbers, but they will find a way eventually

The media is? struggling to find something bad to say about Trump’s job numbers, but they will find a way eventually.

Neil Irwin at the NYT?writes: Quote:

The real question in analyzing?the May jobs numbers?released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for ?good? in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately.

So, for example, ?splendid? and ?excellent? fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low.

?Salubrious,? ?salutary? and ?healthy? work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year ? a nice improvement but also not the kind of sharp increase that might lead the Federal Reserve to rethink its cautious path of interest rate increases.

And a broader definition of unemployment, which includes people who have given up looking for a job out of frustration, fell to 7.6 percent. The jobless rate for African-Americans fell to 5.9 percent, the lowest on record, which we would count as ?great.? End quote.

Wonder no more why traditional Black and Democrat blue collar voters are turning red in the US. The US economy is performing well at the moment, not that you’d ever know from the constant stream of negative news stories about Donald Trump.

Our media here do the same and repeat relentless negative stories about Donald Trump, whilst ignoring the good news.
