WASHINGTON (AP) - Sasquatch might as well have traipsed across the White House lawn Friday with a lost Warren Commission file on his way to the studio where NASA staged the moon landing.
Conspiracy theorists came out in force after the government reported a sudden drop in the U.S. unemployment rate one month before Election Day. Their message: The Obama administration would do anything to ensure a November victory, including manipulating unemployment data.

The first two paragraphs are nearly hysterical in their defense of Obama. I simply can't believe how obvious they have become.
and now the press will report on the “conspiracy” rather than the incredibly suspect numbers . . . .
Nothing worse than seeing the AP or the MSM trying to act credible.
We know they’re lying. I think that most of America does.
Of course. They’ll ignore the numbers and “investigate” anyone that questions them.
The media goons know the recently released numbers are bogus just as well as I do. But after Zer0's abysmal debate performance last Wednesday, coupled with Crazy Joe Biden's comment that 0's misadministration wants to raise taxes by $1 trillion, Zer0 and his handlers were desperate to try and turn his sliding poll numbers around. Will it work? Only with the uninformed and the weak minded.
Anyone who believes that 14.7% number is not the real number only need ask him or herself would they believe that way if they were in that category of the underemployed? My guess is, probably not.
They're so used to seeing the Wookie.
...and a shout out to Ayn Rand and George Orwell. Good call guys!
Real employment has flatlined. Turn out the lights as you leave.
AEI has a really good analysis of this.
The numbers are “accurate” and “real”.
However they arise from ~600,000 people taking up second jobs or part-time jobs out of economic necessity. AEI calls these the “involuntarily employed” (or something like that).
A discussion of the analysis is going on on another thread here. It’s definitely worth the look (it completely changed how I personally view the matter), and the numbers are MUCH more damning of Obama and the Obama Economy/Recession/Depression than they’d be if they were simply cooked up.
They stop counting 870,000 people who have exhausted their benefits.
The conspiracy is the Mass Media is refusing to report that fact.
Jack Welch on Anderson Cooper being badgered and begged to take back his accusation on Twitter that the Obama administration cooked the books. Welch says he should have ended the controversial Tweet with question mark. Other than that, he’s not backing down. He said we need to look at things like assumptions used by BLS to arrive at unemployment figures.
Obamugabe is a fraud. So is American journalism...print and broadcast and much of the “new media”. I don’t care if it is big shot network pukes in New York or D.C., or LOCAL news reporters in Left Elbow Nebraska....the entire freakin’ industry is a joke.
The fact is they are
The Ministry of Propaganda (MOP)
And they take their job very seriously. After all, they are fully aware of who really signs their paychecks.
Food stamp usage keeps rising in response to those people who no longer show up on the unemployment rolls.
