    171,000 jobs were created

    170,000 jobs were lost

    Net change = +1,000 jobs.

    Fox is not incorrect in the facts, you're simply taking someones talking point (we gained 171,000 jobs, yay!) without actually looking at the report and data.

    The Jobs Report covers more than new jobs created. It also covers jobs lost as well.

    Source please, excuse me if I don't take what you say at face value. I do not think they would produce a jobs report for jobs gained if in fact they knew the same amout of jobs were lost. I need a source Warfish.

    October Jobs Report: U.S. Adds 171,000 Jobs As Unemployment Rate At 7.9 Percent

    Posted: 11/02/2012 8:31 am EDT Updated: 11/02/2012 1:20 pm EDT

    The U.S. economy added 171,000 jobs in October as the country's unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9 percent, the Labor Department said in a release Friday. August and September's numbers were additionally revised upwards:

    More from The Associated Press:

    WASHINGTON U.S. employers added 171,000 jobs in October and hiring was stronger over the previous two months than first thought. The unemployment rate inched up to 7.9 percent from 7.8 percent in September.

    The Labor Department's last look at hiring before Tuesday's election sketched a picture of a job market that is gradually gaining momentum after nearly stalling in the spring.

    Since July, the economy has created an average of 173,000 jobs a month, up from 67,000 a month from April through June.

    Still, President Barack Obama will face voters with the highest unemployment rate of any incumbent since Franklin Roosevelt. The rate ticked up because more people without jobs started looking for work. The government only counts people as unemployed if they are actively searching.

    Investors were pleased by the news. The Dow Jones industrial average futures were flat before it came out at 8:30 a.m. EDT, and within minutes they were up 30 points.

    The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note climbed to 1.77 percent from 1.72 percent, a sign that investors were moving money out of bonds and into stocks.

    Most of the details in the report were positive. The government revised the jobs figures to show that 84,000 more jobs were added than previously estimated.

    The gains in October were widespread across most industries. And the percentage of Americans working or looking for work rose for the second straight month.

    The economy has added jobs for 25 straight months. There are now 580,000 more jobs than when Obama took office.

    But there were also signs of the economy's ongoing weakness. Average hourly pay dipped a penny to $23.58. And the number of unemployed increased 170,000 to 12.3 million.

    The department said Hurricane Sandy had no noticeable impact on the report.

    The economy has picked up a bit in recent weeks, mostly on the strength of consumers. Americans are more confident and buying more big-ticket items, like cars and appliances. Auto companies reported steady sales gains last month despite losing three days of business to the storm in heavily populated areas of the Northeast.

    Yet businesses remain nervous about the economy's future course. Many are concerned that Congress will fail to reach a budget deal before January. If lawmakers can't strike an agreement, sharp tax increases and spending cuts will take effect next year and possibly trigger another recession.

    American companies are also nervous about the economic outlook overseas. Europe's financial crisis has pushed much of that region into recession and cut into U.S. exports and corporate profits.

    Still positive by 1000

    As long as Mitt don't win it is a win for the average American.

    Wait, what about the part where you were certain they wouldn't tout a jobs report of 171,000 jobs if there were also 170,000 new unemployed?

    I still do not give credence to the post above.

    Well, his willingness to make a complete ass out of himself by starting a thread that blows up in his face...well that's fratboy stuff. So, yeah I guess.

    This post started about a Fox news lie, it is still about a fox news lie, and more importantly about people like you, who will justify it. people wonder how the holocaust happened. Take a good look at yourselves. You are how it happened. It just takes a little stupid for bad shi& to happen.
