As David's "GOP To Starving Unemployed: Live With It. I'm Getting My Nails Done" pointed out, the GOP isn't interested in helping Americans get jobs.

Despite their reluctance, there are glimmers of good employment news, and (!) Fox Biz (!) is the one bringing them to us. Because Da Foxers are just. That. Good.

Now, I realize how you all clamor for more reporting from Fox, and believe me, I scrounge around for all the ClusterFoxisms I can, because they are clearly an impeccable, consistently reliable source for right wing propaganda honest news stories.

After some digging around in my inbox, I found an example of their exemplary work:

A report from payroll processor ADP shows 238,000 private-sector jobs were added in December, well above estimates of 200,000.

See? See how they sneaked in a professionally and accurately reported newsflash? Isn't that just like them, those scamps.

I am now removing my firmly implanted tongue from my cheek.

I know, I know, I'm quoting another email alert from Fox Business News, but hey, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Besides, we all trust Fox the way we would our own best friends. And by best friends I mean prison inmates.

But I digress.

Did I mention there was some good economic news today? Did you see any of this reported by the "mainstream" news media? Hey, me neither!

A-a-and we're off!

The American private sector added 215,000 jobs in November, according to a report from payroll processor ADP. Economists expected a slimmer gain of 173,000.

The Commerce Department reports sales of new, single-family homes jumped 25.4% in October from the month before to an annual rate of 444,000 units, topping expectations of a 428,000-unit rate. The spike was the biggest since 1980.

So there.

Yes, Fox Biz sent me this email, and yes, I believe them. I'm not sure why, but I do:

The Labor Department reports the number of Americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits fell to 323,000 last week from an upwardly revised 332,000 the week prior. Economists expected claims to fall to 330,000 from an initially reported 331,000.

The private sector added 176,000 jobs in August, according to a report from payroll processor ADP. The number missed expectations of 180,000.

The Institute for Supply Management’s gauge of non-manufacturing activity in August came in at 58.6 from 56 the month prior. Economists expected a reading of 55. The new orders component was the highest since February 2011.

If Fox Biz says it, it must be true, right? Via an email alert, some upbeat news adding a few details to what Paddy posted earlier:

The American private sector added 188,000 jobs in June, according to payroll processor ADP. The gain is considerably larger than the 160,000 economists expected.

The number of individuals applying for first-time jobs benefits fell to 343,000 last week from an upwardly revised 348,00 the week prior. Economists expected claims to fall to 345,000 from an initially reported 346,000. The report comes a day early this week as a result of the Independence Day holiday.

Wall Street capped the shortened trading day with modest gains as market participants overcame mixed data and ongoing turmoil in global markets. The Dow climbed 53 points, or 0.35%, while the broader S&P 500 ticked up 0.07%.

Say it with me now: #BlameObama

Now about those public sector jobs...
