NYT Makes Up Labor Department Quote

The NYT Business Section front page news article “Job Growth And Wages Were Weak Last Month” opened with the following:

Job creation slowed to a crawl in May and hourly wages failed to keep up with inflation, the Labor Department said on Friday, in a report suggesting that high energy prices and higher interest rates are starting to crimp economic growth.

The Labor Department really “said” that it “slowed to a crawl”? This is a news piece and I never read anywhere in the article that a Labor Department spokesman “said” anything of the kind. Do they think Robert Reich is still heading that department? He said things like that yesterday on Kudlow’s show.
