Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday said he is seeing a "tectonic shift in reporting" -- even by the so-called "drive-by media -- on the U.S. economy.
"You know, folks, even the drive-by media is starting to turn on Obama on the economy," Limbaugh explained. "The economic news, the unemployment news, it went down 7.3 from seven-point whatever it was, but the media knows that that’s not because jobs are being created."
He continued: "We’re witnessing a tectonic shift in reporting on the economy. We really are. And it’s all about politics. It’s not about the media trying to get it right. Obama and the Democrats and their minions are deathly afraid that the Federal Reserve is going to look at the lowering unemployment rate and end quantitative easing. They’re scared to death, this is an amazing thing, too, because the unemployment rate went down to 7.3% not because a bunch of new jobs are created; it’s because even more people left the workforce."
