CNBC:’s Steve Liesman: January Jobs Report “Weak” and “A Disappointment” (Video)

CNBC weighed in on the dismal jobs report this morning.
Steve Liesman, CNBC’s senior economics reporter, admitted the news was “weak” and a “disappointment.”

“It’s a weak report, no doubt about it. I think there’s a big disappointment in revisions in regard to December. We had a big number of people who were absent due to weather in December but the number for January was not very large.”
