AP Lie: 'Workers Gave Up'

Taking a cue from their previous report which misquoted the Labor Department, AP falsey reported as that the Labor Department says discouraged workers "gave up looking for jobs."

Clinton Lowers Expectations in Wyo.

(AP)..."The Labor Department's report also indicated that the nation's unemployment rate fell to 4.8 percent as hundreds of thousands of people gave up looking for jobs.

As I noted before, the labor department is actually saying that discouragement isn't the reason people are unemployed. The number of unemploymed has actually dropped in recent months. Newsbusters points out that more people are retiring now, that retail workers tend to end their jobs after the holidays, and that young people may be working less. The estimate of February's discouraged workers was 15% lower than the previous month's.
