"The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.
"And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.
"Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
"And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today."

I'm afraid I never believe reports or data tossed out by the government anyway. I look with my own eye and form my own opinion.
Yeah, people be hurtin'.
