Obama adm and Media Bias on initial filings of unemployment claims

The numbers on Thursday seemed amazingly good.  From the Politico:

The number of Americans seeking unemployment aid plummeted last week to seasonally adjusted 339,000, the lowest level in more than four years. The sharp drop offered a hopeful sign that the job market could pick up.
The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly applications fell by 30,000 to the fewest since February 2008. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, dropped by 11,500 to 364,000, a six-month low. . . .
The problem is that one large state didn't report their numbers.  The Obama administration wouldn't say what state.  Much of the media coverage, such as that in the Politico, just ignored this very important point.

Breitbart is reporting that it was California that was not reported.
