Did anybody see any mention on M$M of Unemployment claims dropping 23,000 & Durable Goods up 9.9%???

see below DoL Press release of a substantial drop, -23,000, in Unemployment insurance claims out Thursday at 8:30 AM.

USA Today on line, had an article later that day which also mentioned that the Commerce Dept indicated that Durable Goods Orders "surged 9.9% in September by the largest amount in nearly three years".

Just curious as to whether this got any coverage on Televised Corporate Media. I didn't catch anything but I can only see one network infotainment news at a time.

10:24AM EDT October 25. 2012 - WASHINGTON (AP) -- The number of first-time claims for unemployment benefits fell 23,000 to a seasonally adjusted 369,000 the week ended Oct. 20, the Labor Department said Thursday, reflecting an improving labor market .

In a separate report, the government said orders for long-lasting U.S. manufactured goods surged 9.9% in September by the largest amount in nearly three years, largely due to a rebound in aircraft orders. In August, orders had dropped 13.1%.

3. The real story should be

what is happening in the Wholesale end of Business. Have to wait weeks for product to arrive at our distribution centers do to JIT inventories,this is caused by a big up ticks in sales. So damn much stuff coming from Asia and Mexico with all kinds nasty lead times. You won't here this in the Corporate News will you. Hey,folks are spending,but,the retailers are either loaded with junk or their out off stock on the more desired product. If you don't have it you can't sell it,kiss that customer good by baby.
