The Washington Post was so confident that the May jobs report would show rising unemployment that it pre-wrote and actually tweeted a “grim milestone” story that it then hurried to retract:
The Post sheepishly acknowledged deleting its original tweet:
An earlier version of this tweet was deleted because it carried a headline that had not been updated after the release of today's unemployment numbers. This tweet is correct.

At first glance, it might seem shocking the the Post writes its story to fit a preconception before it knows the facts, but on reflection, that is pretty much what it does all day, every day.
