NYC tabloids are giving fodder to politics again today.

Newsday, the most relevant – covers the Healthcare Club for Men other slight to women: get your mammograms late, please – we don’t want to spend on you

It seems that for all the put-downs out there Palin is the talk of the day – or at least 2 out of 3 tabloids.

The Daily News covers the Oprah stint

while AM-NY pouts over “NYC being snubbed” in the book tour.

NY Post has been giving Bloomberg good press (or rather Thompson bad press). Now that his 150 millions helped Bloomberg squeek by against an unfunded opponent, it’s safe for NY Post to balk at the post-elections budget cuts.

You get what you voted for, NY. Or rather, what you couldn’t be bothered to show up to vote against. As for NY Post? Since they failed to tell us that “Mike was one heck of a guy” before election day, they can stuff it!

Remember the recent dust-up between the White House and Associated Press over the number of jobs they said they created?

The Associated Press sampled the numbers and found some “overstatements” (goosed up numbers). The White House replied that AP shouldn’t have written about it as they too noticed that very mistake and were going to correct that. Any time soon.

ABC also decided to plough through those corrected statements

Here’s a stimulus success story: In Arizona’s 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

Discrepancies on government web site call into question stimulus spending.

There’s one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.

And this is one of several. What was the explanation this time? Blame the recipients:

“We report what the recipients submit to us,” said Ed Pound, Communications Director for the Board.

I tells ya, those inhabitants of the 57th state are wacky, wacky, wacky!

I bet the treasury cash Goldman Sachs & friends is real though.


Brushing it off

President Obama brushed off criticism over his administration’s inaccurate reporting on job creation Wednesday, telling Fox News the accounting is an “inexact science” and that any errors are a “side issue” when compared with the goal of turning the economy around.

Only for the Andersen aconting – the Enron’s accountants
