Are you actually saying that the government numbers are NOT manipulated???

Are you saying that they are? I.e., that the number just published was not a simple computation from collected data following the same procedures and techniques which have been used in reporting all prior equivalent numbers?

Recognize that this is very different than saying this particular computation is not the best reflection of the unemployment situation. One can make the case for several metrics, each telling us something slightly different. Of course, one can't use one computation for Obama and a different one for Bush since that wouldn't give a meaningful comparison.
