From the Small Consolations Dept.: At Least I Called It Right

I am not a statistician, nor a labor analysts, so the fact that I was right in my interpretation of the latest unemployment figures from the Dept. of Labor is not a sign of how smart I am, but of the lousy job that the media is doing, with a few exceptions, in analyzing unemployement data.

Nonetheless, when I saw the article by Dave Lindorff titled America's Happy Talk Media: No Jobs Is Good News!, I confess I felt vindicated (and kind of hopeless, too, about the state of the mainstream media).
