By The New York Times

The U.S. economy added a relatively weak 120,000 jobs in March, compared with 240,000 in February, and the unemployment rate dipped to 8.2 percent from 8.3 percent, the Labor Department said Friday.

Many economists had expected March to be the fourth consecutive month of solid employment growth, with the addition of more than 200,000 jobs.

While my comments will probably be viewed as another bleeding heart liberal that has been brainwashed I still feel I have questions not necessarily needing to be answered as much as needing to be addressed. It just seems very few media outlets to include both television and newspaper spend very much time not necessarily defending this administration but more simply informing the general public about what type of economy this administration inherited in January 2009. Nor does it seem anybody ever talks about the type of legislation this administration proposes that never sees the light of day in our republican controlled House and Senate (where the majority does not rule anymore) while it seems that every piece of legislation that manages to get passed restricts economic growth while reducing the size of government (more layoffs) and makes it even more difficult to country to expand programs in renewable energy and none of this ever gets talked about. Its almost as if "it must be doom and gloom" or it doesn't merit discussion. I understand newcasts are about how much revenue they produce but what about specials or documentaries simply to inform. Even for something as simple as our national debt or our deficit and when they mean?

Your comments are viewed as from a bleeding heart liberal that has been brainwashed. The other observation is that the main stream Media has from 2007 propped up and defended Obama and his failed and failing polices.
The House is under Republican control and the Senate under Democrat control which each controls the agenda. Harry Reid has held up more legislation than the Republicans.
Obama's economic, foreign and fossil energy policies have hurt this nation more than outside influences.
Government needs to be reduced by 44 percent. Remove about 60 percent of Government regulations in industry. To date renewable energy is not economically viable nor reliable in dependability.
As I have said before, the main stream media has supported and propped up Obama since 2007, so to have a documentary on the national debt or our deficit would be damning for Obama.

Nate, bud you gotta take those blinders off. Who controls the Senate ? Democrats.... Obamas last 2 budgets were voted down in the Dem Senate.
Obama's Jobs Bill was voted down in the Democrat controlled Senate. Almost every bill the Republican House has passed and sent to the Senate, Harry Reid WILL NOT bring it to a vote.
And lastly we DON'T need MORE government. Renewable energy is BREAKING us. You can't take a country that's run on fossil fuel for as long as we have and shut down that industry cold turkey and put billions we don't have into renewables.
If a segment of American people would get their noses out of Dancing With the Stars, American Idol, Simpsons and the rest of the reality TV shows that don't amount to a hill of beans and get engaged in what's going on. you wouldn't need docu specials on the debt and deficit. But there are people who are paying attention and that's why we keep plugging away to inform people on why Obama should not be re-elected.
