The Economy is getting better! No, it's getting worse!
The trick, of course, is to check the sources. If it is Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, FOX News, and other conservative outlets, then it's getting worse. If it is any other mainstream, left leaning media outlet, then it's getting better. Doesn't really matter what's happening of course, such as this little piece demonstrates, in which the AP explains how an unexpected rise in unemployment claims really means things are improving. Now, had this been a Republican president, then obviously this would have heralded the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, while FOX and company would be explaining that this is irrelevant to the prosperity and bountiful harvests that are just around the corner. Ever get the impression that even though we live in the information age, at the end of the day we just don't know squat?
