Breitbart’s Big Journalism ^ | January 19, 2013 | John NoltePosted on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 3:38:10 PM by 2ndDivisionVetOn Thursday, while looking wistfully back at Obama‘s first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. In a First Read article that opened with the question,
“Is the nation better off than it was four years ago,” senior political director, Mark Murray, did something that neither he, nor NBC News, nor the mainstream media was willing to do during this last presidential campaign: report on Obama’s record.But there it finally was: The Truth — and from NBC News, no less.
Poverty’s up from 43.6 million to 46.2 million, middle class incomes are down $50k compared to $52k, the deficit’s exploded from $10 trillion to $16 trillion, food stamp recipients have skyrocketed 33.5 million to 46.6 million, unemployment hasn’t budged, and the same number of people are without health insurance today as there were in 2009.
Still, NBC News couldn’t even bring itself to report the most damning Obamanomics numbers: a population so despondent by a lack of jobs that enough people have dropped out to shrink the labor market to levels unseen since the 1980s. A chronic long-term unemployment problem unseen in this country since World War II.
