I am guessing if they announce a smaller number in comparison to everyone else then they just might avoid attention.

Stop with your facts and numbers immediately! The news has been telling us that we need to panic about these extremely small layoffs so we all need to start doing so right now! Maybe also take a job way below your normal rate if your job hunting while your at it to get through these hard times ahead. /s

In all seriousness, main stream media really seems to want us to panic but the numbers just aren't adding up.
