LV's unemployment rate hits high of the year -- Sun makes it look like nothing happened

Here's the good and fair lead paragraph today from Sun reporter Cy Ryan: "CARSON CITY – Unemployment shot up to 13.8 percent in the Las Vegas area in June, the highest mark this year."

But here's the sorry headline the Sun used downpage on the Sun's website:

"Las Vegas unemployment at 13.8 percent
Official: Nevada’s job market essentially flat"

Can't wait for the upcoming "analysis" from the Sun's editorial crew and Dem-friendly toady columnists. It's going to be a trick explaining how Sen. Harry Reid bears absolutely no blame and if it were not for Sen. Reid the unemployment rate would really be double that.
