As the story below illustrates the real facts on the economy and jobs are rarely told in the mainstream media. Instead all we are given are distorted
factoids and partial truths.

The media and Democrats keep repeating it over and over: "2.3 million jobs lost" since President Bush took office. His could be the worst job record
since before World War II, they claim.
One little problem: It's not true.
Not only has there been no net loss of jobs during the Bush administration, there has been a net gain, even with the devastation of 9/11. At least 2.4
million jobs have been created since the president took office, 2 million of those in 2003. The gains more than offset the losses.
