More Media Bias

The media bias towards President Trump is on display everyday but here is a little tidbit that shows the media bias.
The U6 unemployment rate is basically the number of people out of work or work part time because they cannot find a full time job.
During ex-president Obama's presidency, the U6 unemployment rate was never mentioned because it was so bad.  The U6 rate was always in double digits, with a high point of 17%.  The media never wrote about it.
But now with President Trump, the U6 unemployment rate is mentioned several times a week by different media companies and they do so because the U6 is higher than the official unemployment rate.   Now, the U6 rate is close to 8%, over half of what it was for Obama.
Just more media bias on display.
