<p>All three major broadcast networks covered on their Thursday evening newscasts the June 2015 jobs report, but it was ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight </em>that neglected provide any further details and/or context beyond the unemployment rate and number of jobs added and omitted how hourly wages remained flat and the labor force participation rate sunk to its lowest level in 38 years.</p>

<p>While CBS and NBC chronicled the numerous pitfalls to varying degrees, neither chose to look at why the numbers remained sluggish or assign blame for the state of the economy.</p>
