Economy Improves!

But you won't find anything about that in the Mainstream Media. The New York Times and it's slavish devotees in the other so-called mainstream 'news' organizations (ABC, NBC, CBS, etc) can't be bothered to report that the economy is steaming along at a rate that actually surpasses the fabled Clinton Boom.

According to, unexpectedly large employer hiring brought the U.S. unemployment rate down to a record 4.7 percent, which according to the report is the lowest it has been in 4 and a half years. (Remember that the Clinton Era ushered in a decline in it's closing years, and the events of September 11, 2001 did not help the economy at all.) The fact that we have not only avoided a recession but have actually showed steady growth is a testament to the power of supply-side economics. When will the MSM make note of this and cease their socialist wailing?

in a related report, which the MSM also chose to ignore, it appears that consumer confidence rose to 89.4 on Ipsos' 100-point scale. This despite the MSM doing their best to create and maintain an atmosphere of gloom about the economy, in their ongoing attempts to sabotage Republican election prospects in general, and Geroge W. BUsh's Presidency in particular.

One wonders what it would take for the MSM to actually report on the news, instaead of their personal dreamlands. Maybe actually getting out of their elitist conclaves might help. But I think the only real cure for the malaise that afflicts the MSM is reader flight. As Michael Ledeen of National Review likes to say, "Faster, please."
