This is a government source of economic data:

Due to budgetary constraints, the Economic Indicators service ( will be discontinued effective March 1, 2008.

What?!? Oh wait... bad economic year right before an election...

Now read their mission statement:

Economic is brought to you by the Economics and Statistics Administration at the U.S. Department of Commerce. Our mission is to provide timely access to the daily releases of key economic indicators from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Wow, that's pretty terrifying. Apparently if they have to publish figures and studies, people will call them on it if it's BS, and that's a problem!

Yet one more means and manner for the pols to get away with just making stuff up... Edging closer to the propaganda state every day... smells like 1984.
