CBS News: “Unemployment has been at 8 percent or higher for THREE AND A HALF YEARS”

I was surprised to see CBS News run this report the way they did, not emphasizing the so-called good news portion of the report over the bad news. And to hear Scott Pelley say “Unemployment has been at 8 percent or higher for three and a half years”, well it just sounds like it’s made for an ad:

Did you catch that at the end, the “great recession”? Yeah, it was only “great” thanks to Obama’s policies but by labeling it that way at the end, it almost sounds like an excuse for the economy to be as bad as it is. But there is no excuse and that’s the big thing lacking from this report, the connection to Obama’s failed policies.

Even so, it was a good report minus the “great recession” excuse at the end.
