1. The Republicans will "revise" their fake stats later anyhow

And somewhere down the line we'll learn that the real numbers are even more pathetic. Republicans depend on lies, and short memories.

4. Why do I subscribe to the Washington Post and not the New York Times?

The editorial policies of the Times have been suspect for a very long time.

I used to subscribe to both, but discontinued NYT about 2 years ago. Glad I did.

5. 130,000 jobs is very weak

back in the Bush years and early Obama years, Paul Krugman said that the economy needed to create 150,000 to 175,000 jobs per month just to break even because we have a growing population.

The population has grown over the past 8-12 years, so that "break even" number should be slightly higher still.

7. The NYT is still trying to curry favor with Trump.

They did the same types of stories in 2016, pillorying Hillary for any slight thing while obscuring the crazy things Trump did or said. An example I remember (though not the exact words) related to the investigation of the Clinton Foundation and the Trump foundation. The Clinton story headline was something along the lines of Clinton Foundation Being Investigated for Fraud versus Concerns About Trump Foundation. We all know which one was the true fraud.

8. and 538 has a decent piece highlighting why EACH

could/should be taken with a grain of salt. (margin of error, will be revised over time)
My take: the economy IS slowing. the job market MIGHT be softening (moderately). unemployment, still WAY down. (and Trump is an economic lobotomy)

9. The NYT is now the Paper of the Plutocracy

They have some excellent journalists still working there (and I don't mean the Maggie Habermans and Peter Bakers of the world) but Dean Baquet and the rest of their editorial team goes out of their way to spin stories in the most favorable light to conservatives. They have internalized the false-balance mentality to the umpteenth degree.

12. I noticed the EXACT same thing today and almost included the contrast in my LBN post for this news

but it didn't seem to be worth my time.
