Well, it looks like the nation’s press decided to ignore me:
This is from the Washington Post. The New York Times is similar. Elsewhere, the LA Times managed to restrict its comparison to the Great Depression to a subhead, while the Wall Street Journal called April’s unemployment rate a “record” but avoided Great Depression references altogether.
I’ll say it again: this is an artificial number that bears no resemblance to the Great Depression. It is a disservice to suggest otherwise.
