Today the for GE CEO twittered that BLS stats. were rigged. He's been shilling for Romney for a while now.

All the major news outlets picked up on Jack Welch's latest Tweet:

“Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,” Welch wrote in a message posted immediately after the U.S. Labor Department reported that the economy added 114,000 jobs last month, pushing the unemployment rate to 7.8 percent, the lowest since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009.

Roseanne Badowski, Welch’s secretary, said the retired CEO is the only one with access to the Twitter account and is now unavailable for the rest of the day in meetings.

It's worthwhile noting his earlier Romney propaganda two weeks ago on CNBC. The network had him on for an hour of Fox News-like "analysis". See:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
