How the media reports economic figures
It’s never “moving along nicely” and there’s never a look at the bigger, long-term picture.
Case in point: CNBC’s “New Home Sales Drop 0.3%, Cast Shadow on Recovery.” (A tiny, month-to-month drop casts a shadow? Really? Even when the year-to-year figures are up 17 percent?)
Also: It should be Casts Shadow, not Cast Shadow.
