CNNMoney Caught Changing Report on ‘Green’ Jobs Numbers, Casting Them in More Positive Light
The Blaze ^ | 3/25/12 | Becket Adams

At 7:50 am Friday morning, CNNMoney reported on the embarrassingly small number of jobs the “green” energy industry has contributed to the nation’s workforce. The story was titled “‘Green’ jobs just a small portion of workforce.”


“As Kermit knows, it’s not easy being green,” the story began. “There were only 3.1 million green jobs in the U.S. in 2010.”

Translation: After receiving billions in federal subsidies ($100 billion from the stimulus program alone), “green” jobs account for only 2.4 percent of the nation’s employment. Seeing as how taxpayer dollars are being thrown at “green” energy projects under the guise of “stimulating the economy” and “creating jobs,” the “2.4 percent” figure is probably not the greatest. At least, that’s what the CNNMoney report seemed to indicate.

That is, until the story changed.

It’s worse than that.

This is a total break down of the 4th estate. We have no one looking out for our interests anymore.

The whole “Green” movement is juct one more scam to achieve the Left’s highest priority - shifting wealth from those who have to those who don’t - away from established and proven energy resources to untested and inefficient methods - starting with the Global Warming fantasy which supposedly justifies the shift to the nearly worhtless green means of production to the deceitful paths of government-backed financing, it’s the latest in a long history of Snake Oil industries....

“This is a total break down of the 4th estate.”

The media is totally corrupt. It is more than just a propaganda instrument of the Left, it is an offensive weapon that relentlessly attacks all things conservative. Make no mistake about it, they are working tirelessly for their Democrat masters who reward their fellow travellers in kind with ready access to government officials and information.

People have the shifting wealth thing wrong. It isn’t taking from the rich and redistributing it to the poor.

It’s taking from the middle class, giving it to the rich while saying its for the poor. Wash rinse and repeat until there are only the wealthy and the proles.

The left has been engaged in a systematic destruction of the middle class since the beginning of time?
