ECONOMIC NEWS MANAGEMENT

who is responsible for the timing of the release of national economic statistics?just prior to the May electionsa small 'surprise drop in inflation figures were announced hot on the heels of an equally surprising minor drop in unemployment.Both figures were the last monthly figures before the May local elections!coincidence? may be .


Today with the may elections gone and the eyes of the media on the Queen's historic visit to Eireless favourable figures were released showing inflation increasing to a 2 and a half yearsanother coincidence perhaps?or is it cynical news management by no.10 PR machine or by politicaly motivated political editors within the media?these sorts of coincidences Ido not believe in how about you?
