The Media cracks me up
I saw on the CNN ticker, just a minute ago, that jobless claims fell to nearly a three year low. Nearly a three year low? What does that mean? Think about it. What does it mean by 'nearly'? Why not just a 2 and a half year low if that's what it was? Do you get the feeling that it's really wanting the news to be one thing, when the reality isn't quite there? Like, you know, telling me what it wants me to hear rather than what it is? The fact that the Market is soaring doesn't help figure the report. I've watched that for how many months, and notice almost every time employment news isn't the greatest, the Market increases. Don't know why. I'm not an economist. I've just noticed the overall trend. So I'm stuck trying to figure out what is meant by 'nearly' a three year low.
