Different takes on the same story.

Our headline all day has been "163,000 Jobs Added In July; Unemployment Rate Rose To 8.3 Percent."

But as is often the case, some other news outlets like to add a little bit of interpretation to their headlines:

-- Fox News says "Wrong-Way Growth: Jobless Jumps
In July as New Hiring Remains Slow
."

-- NBC News writes "US economy's job engine revved up in July."

More balanced, perhaps, is Reuters' "Job growth steps up, but jobless rate rises."
