Yesterday, Media Matters had a very enjoyable little item in which they caught Steve and Gretchen and probably the rapey one just cold comparing apples to steaming piles of elephant shit, as regards the growth in unemployment under President B. Bamz. In fact — you will be just shocked to learn — “real” unemployment had grown by .5 percent rather than, oh, DOUBLING.
You would think they would be embarrassed by this, and in fact Gretchen does take a rather somber, hitty tone, like she is gonna cold punch some fools for making her have to issue this mortifying correction. As Dylan Byers at Politico notes, they neglected to thank Media Matters for helpfully bringing this surely innocent mistake to their attention. No hat-tip at all! It must be time for a bloggers ethics panel.
