Good Morning America's Bill Weir and Reuters editor Chrystia Freeland on
Saturday gushed over Obama administration talking points on the new unemployment
numbers. After Weir talked about a White House-created graphic showing job
losses slowing, Freeland unselfconsciously rhapsodized, "Well, I was going to
say, what I think that first tells you is that [presidential adviser David]
Axelrod is a really smart guy, because that is a beautiful graphic."
Continuing to tout how useful the show was being to the Obama administration,
she added, "And I'm sure he's really, really happy to see it on TV
Perhaps wanting to spread the credit around, Weir complimented, "Might be [Obama
adviser] David Plouffe who came up with that one, too."
Freeland couldn't get over the cleverness of this graphic, which featured
the Obama logo,
enthusing, "Okay! Okay. Both of you guys, well done."
