Biased Media: Economy Is Affecting the Horses

Guess which of these statements made the mainstream media headlines:

A.) US April tax receipts hit all-time record

B.) Record low unemployment rate offers new challenges to military recruiters


C.) Inflation is down to 3.0% from 4.1% in 2007

D.) Horses Abandoned Over Bad Economy

Although, each of these statements is true, the correct answer is C.
With an unemployment rate at 5.0%, continued GDP growth, Inflation down to 3.0%,… The people are so broke they’re abandoning their horses(?)

Maybe they should eat them instead?
Goodness… What will people do if unemployment reaches 6.0%?

In related news… The cause of much of the economic hardship is the current price of gas.
Democrats blocked domestic oil development this week.

UPDATE: Don Surber compares today’s economy with the Jimmy Carter economy, via Instapundit:

It was 22 in June 1980 when Jimmy Carter was president. Inflation was 14.38% that month and unemployment was 7.6%.
