(Media Matters) After the release of the Labor Department's monthly jobs report showing robust job growth and a significant increase in hourly wages, Fox News framed the numbers negatively and suggested the headline was the fact that the unemployment rate ticked up. The U.S. added 257,000 jobs last month and has seen a significant increase in hourly wages, according to a February 6 report from the Labor Department. The last three months combined have resulted in the biggest gain in jobs in the past 17 years. http://goo.gl/zPZ761
