On media coverage of the unemployment rate.
The unemployment rate's up to 9%, and they're celebrating. They're talking about some of the strongest job growth – 244,000 new jobs, 62,000 of them from Micky D's. Sixty two thousand from McDonald's. Now remember, in the past, those jobs have been impugned by the Democrats and the left, as meaningless, futureless, hamburger-flipper jobs, without health care... if we'd had our news media of today, back in the days of Herbert Hoover, we would've never had a depression. Because it would've never been reported as a depression.
