The data seems to be getting worse even with the government spin. Now, the Federal Reserve is strongly hinting at more stimulus (money printing). Last week, Fed Chief Ben Bernanke was publicly wondering if there is, “a sustained recovery going on in the labor market, or are we stuck in the mud?” I’ll go with the same thing the facts and honest reporting should have been saying all along, “stuck in the mud.” The economy is in real trouble, but you wouldn’t have known it from what you read or heard in the MSM. It’s all been a mainstream media recovery hoax. As a journalist, I think that’s the biggest fraud of all.
