Not on Fox, Vol. 2,984,765

Reported by Melanie - October 3, 2008 -

Before the markets opened this morning (October 3, 2008) the Labor Department released its September "jobs report." It showed that: "Employers cut the most jobs in five years in September as cash-squeezed companies pulled back in an effort to bolster pinched profits."

Neil Cavuto made no mention of this during his "premiere business news" show today, though he did keep scratching his head as to why the market was down 157+ points at this afternoon's close, despite the fact that the House passed the "rescue" bill.

At the end of the show, in his "Common Sense" editorial, he even referred to Wall Streeters as a bunch of "babies," still not telling viewers that the markets might be down because we're losing jobs like a sive. I guess reporting the numbers just couldn't be worked into today's storyline - questioning the "rescue" bill and selling Sarah Palin. (If Obama wins the election I g-u-a-r-a-n-t-e-e that not only will Cavuto tell his audience, in no uncertain terms, about bad jobs reports but he'll undoubtedly do actual segments (plural) about them.)
