No comment

What depths of unspeakable evil must be on display for the Fair 'n' Balanced Network to close reader comments on a story?

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March and hired more in January and February than previously thought. Friday's government report sent a reassuring signal that the economy withstood a harsh winter that had slowed growth.

The economy gained 192,000 jobs in March, the Labor Department said Friday, slightly below February's revised total of 197,000. Employers added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated.

The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they were more optimistic about their prospects.

Oh.

Maybe they're just waiting for someone to put the numbers into context before the story moves up the page.

There's a reason the 11:00 TV news always leads with a murder or fire or flood. What is there to say about good news, particularly since no one seems to care? I'm surprised Fox bothered running the item at all.
