Didn’t we used to get monthly reports on the economy from Chi Trib and other left-leaning outlets during the Obama years?

All about new jobs, lower unemployment and the like?

Now not so much, even as there’s record-breaking news on that front regularly in 11 months of Trump such as this today in Wall St. Journal:

WASHINGTON—The economy appears to be on its firmest footing in at least a decade, with hiring picking up from earlier this year and the unemployment rate holding at a 17-year low in November.

Nonfarm payrolls rose a seasonally adjusted 228,000 in November, the Labor Department said Friday. It was a slight slowdown from October hiring, which was boosted by a rebound from late-summer hurricanes, but was well above the pace recorded earlier this year. Revised figures showed the economy added 3,000 more jobs than previously estimated in October and September.

Meanwhile, the unemployment rate remained at 4.1% last month, matching the lowest level since December 2000.

Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had expected 195,000 new jobs and a 4.1% unemployment rate last month.

Rather good, eh? What happened?

Besides wholesale deregulation, job-creating free-marketing by the federal government, etc. etc.
