U.S. Job Growth Report

Fox News today has highlighted the Labor Department’s job growth report whereas CNN mentions it only in an indirect way. I find this especially noteworthy given that they both chose Reuters articles. Presumably, they had the same choices of articles to pick from. Fox’s headline is “274,000 Jobs Added in April, Above Forecasts.” CNN’s headline is “European shares up on U.S. jobs.” CNN’s article is mostly about Europe and although the “robust U.S. employment data” is mentioned, no specifics are given including the total number of jobs added which is in Fox’s headline.
