I agree with both. But don't expect the financial press to report the facts.
Let's take a walk through the BLS report and you can arrive at your own conclusion. (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t17.htm)
The BLS report says that the private sector created 185,000 service jobs in April. Even if this report were true, it would have negligible effect on the unemployment rate as about 127,000 new jobs are needed each month just to stay even with population growth and current unemployment rate.

But is the BLS report true?
