Back toward the end of August, Marketwatch and Drudge came out with headlines that "U.S. created 500,000 fewer jobs since 2018 than previously reported, new figures show". While this click-bait headline is great for getting people to read the article, it is quite misleading. In fact, it is more fake news.
The real news is that the economy created 2.2 million jobs in 2018. So how does that agree with the headline? You have to understand how the statistics are collected.
