    Most of them are internet comments or blog posts like yours. None of them contains an actual verifiable source because the supposed report that will supposedly substantiate it is supposedly to be released next week.

    Most or all?

    Either way im not claiming to be chairman of the department of labor, just didnt see anyone adding anything to the topic so we can all have a better understanding.

    These people go after the source and ignore the story, not very productive (as frodo would say :P ).

    I googled "Breitbart" and the first autofill option was "Is breitbart biased"

    There are more google results on Breitbart being crappy, biased news, than actual stuff they post.

    Quote, 'Fact Check: Labor Secretary Solis Misleads on Jobs Revisions

    by Joel B. Pollak5 Oct 2012

    Suspicion about the federal government's September jobs report has fallen on Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, who appeared on CNBC this morning and defended the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), claiming--falsely--that upward revisions of 86,000 jobs were from the private sector. In fact, the new number is entirely accounted for by upwards revisions to state and federal government payrolls.

    The BLS reported that while only 114,000 jobs were created in September--which would have translated into a rise in unemployment from 8.1% to 8.2%--the unemployment rate fell dramatically to 7.8%. That unusual drop is the fastest in nearly three decades, and was unexpected even in the rosiest predictions.

    One reason for the rise was an upward revision of 86,000 to the July and August jobs numbers--all of which came from a 91,000 increase in the estimate of public sector jobs. Private sector job estimates were actually revised downward by 5,000.

    In addition, the BLS reported a large rise in the number of part-time jobs, adding 600,000 jobs to the total--a dramatic increase of 7.5%, not explained by any other economic indicators--and raising questions about whether the government had changed the way it counted part-time workers.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...ers-Questioned
    If you question the job numbers when you don't like them, then you have to question them when you do like them. Period. When the numbers were making Obama look bad, you were fine with them - so don't act like a hypocrite when they make Obama look good. It's ridiculous.
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.
