Paul, I hope that you had a very Merry Christmas and that you will have a Great New Year.
Is this media outlet owned by Rupert Murdoch? "GM to idle 3 truck plants for retooling in 2012" should have been titled: "GM to Invest $934 Million and Create 300 Jobs." === === ++=== ==== ==== ====
Someone who actually cared about our economy would have written the opening paragraph like this; "GM is planning to invest $328 million in Flint, $331 million in Arlington, and $275 million in Ft. Wayne, Creating at least 100 additional jobs at each factory. === === ==
The paragraph about closing plants would have been near the end of the article, with the shortest closure first and the longest closure last. ==== === ==== === === === ==
The data in both articles are correct, however, one is designed to inspire confidence, the other is designed to inspire fear and failure.
