Morning Jay: How the Media Misrepresents the Race | The Weekly Standard: "And what did the media overlook last week?
-Gas prices increased on average by $0.04, despite the end of the summer driving season. With Brent crude prices remaining elevated, gas prices are probably not going to come down any time soon.
-The Consumer Price Index increased by 0.6 percent month-over-month. This is an extremely large jump, built mostly around increased energy prices.
-Retail sales, excluding gas and cars, were flat.
-Manufacturing production fell by more than 1 percent last month alone, and capacity utilization dropped by 1 point.
-The jobs report from August was an absolute misery."
