“Rising Fears Of Recession” by David Leonhardt (TIMES, 9/8/11)


     “From early 2010 through this spring…employment was growing fast enough to make the economy  look as if it were in a recovery, albeit a modest one,” claims David Leonhardt.  The juxtaposition of “fast” and “modest” in the same sentence makes the message contradictory.  In any case, I don’t remember such growth and heard the “recovery” described as “anemic,” which is an oxymoron.

     “All the News That’s Fit to Print” includes presenting information clearly and in this article Leonhardt failed to do so.  Moreover, if the economy at present is “stalled” and the data is “ominous” how could there have been a recent “recovery” for over a year?

     Isn’t such reporting dissimulation?
