The Daily Star reports that the administration reversed course on the briefings but the fired economist who delivered bad news stays fired. Il Duce's mouthpiece Scarpinato says neither he nor Duce get involved in firing decisions by the Department of Administration. Of course not.
It will be interesting to see what spin now gets put on lackluster jobs and wages data. Consider:
... Scarpinato said his boss believes it’s important that there be comprehensive and correct information disseminated — and not just because the public needs it.
"We want accurate information," he said. "In order for the governor to make public policy decisions, he needs that."
Might "accurate" have a different meaning in Duceyland?
