Short & Sweet Nothing…

NBC PeacockHeard this on the news tonight, looked at my wife in disbelief at what I’d just heard, and thought that it was too good not to make mention of…

In regards to the floundering European economy, the correspondent reported that:

“Growth is slowing faster…”

What the smurf is that supposed to mean?

Read it a few times…

Growth is slowing faster.

I’m sorry, but as far as I’m concerned, that indicates that the economy is *still* growing.

Am I right?

And this is a bad thing, why?

I wish the media would stop making such confusing statements as they continue to report doom and gloom each and every day… It’s not just NBC, that just happened to be the station we were watching tonight…

A better way to say the exact same thing would have been, “You know what, Brian, the economy here in Europe is actually continuing to grow, just not at the rate Europeans have become accustomed to.”

Doesn’t sound so sensational (or gloomy) now, does it?
