by lewwaters

Many people have come to not trust what they read and see in the media. Beyond the obvious bias of many media sources, contradicting articles published calls the media’s reliability into question.

Case in point, the Columbian on August 23, 2011 published an article headlined, “Clark County job market remains stagnant in JulyRevised unemployment rate expected to be about 13 percent.

That ties in well with their article we saw August 16, 2011, “More living with less incomeCounty households earning under $35,000 up 24% as job picture stays bleak

We all know how bad economic conditions have been and remain in Clark County, so maybe you can imagine my surprise to see the headline today, August 25, 2011 of, “State’s job openings at three-year high

Is the rest of the state better off? Or, is someone trying to put lipstick on a pig?

Which way is it? It can’t be both.
