4:02 pm
the s&p 500 down 32 reacting to the labor department's monthly jobs report. a report which highlighted three major problems. it showed companies created just 69,000 jobs last month. that's the worst number in a year. the feds also updated their previous estimates to show the economy added almost 50,000 fewer jobs than we previously thought. and because of all of that, the unemployment rate rose from 8.1 to 8.2%. of course, this could complicate president obama's efforts to keep his job in november. today, the president acknowledged there slooft room for improvement. >> we have got a lot of work to do before we get to where we need to be. >> and the president vowing this country has better days ahead. peter barnes of the fox business network joins you now from d.c. peter, we showed those down arrows on wall street today. the markets actually hit some pretty bad milestones today. >> they did, john.

4:04 pm
>> some economists are worried about a recession if europe really starts to tank bad. but, some economists also think that job growth could improve later this year in auto factories, for example. car sales record ahead in may. chrysler alone. sales up 30% as consumers caught up on purchases they delayed during the recession. >> we're seeing some pockets of the country where demand is picking up in the housing market. we saw gains in consumer spending in april. there is enough income growth for consumers to continue spending and then businesses have very profitable. they are continuing to invest. >> now some economists are looking to the federal reserve for more juice for the economy. they say today's jobs report gives the fed more reasons to launch additional stimulus, john. >> john: peter, one glimmer of potentially good news in an economic slowdown is that energy prices tend to go down as the economy slows.
4:05 pm
>> that's right. falling oil and gas prices are like a big tax cut. one research firm estimates that for every dollar drop in the price of a barrel of crude consumers save $3 billion a year on fuel costs. oil closed down another $3 and change today and has dropped $26 a barrel from its peak in february. gasoline prices are going down as well, down to $3.61 for a gallon of regular. that's down more than 30 cents from the peak earlier this year. john? >> john: we will take the drop, but it sure would be good to create some new jobs. peter barnes for us in washington tonight. peter, thanks so much. mitt romney calls today's job report a harsh indictment of the economic policy. president claims congress could be doing more to put americans back to work. you will hear more from both men coming up on "the fox report." it's not a war and the u.s. isn't using conventional weapons. but president obama has ordered attacks on iran that's
4:06 pm
according to a senior national security official which confirms america has been targets iran's computer system in an attempt to halt suspected development of nuclear weapons. peter doocy is live in washington. this is america's first known for for ray. >> the obama administration thinks t set iran back two years in its ability to build a nuclear weapon. until now the united states had never admitted to using cyber weapons. but these attacks, which are code named olympic games started in 2006 under president george w. bush. yesterday in hawaii the secretary of state leon panetta said this is where war is heading. >> we are dealing with a whole knew arena of attacks coming from cyber. and the potential that cyber could very well be the battlefield of the future. >> so, the u.s. won't always need bombs to take out an adversary's equipment, john. >> john: peter, this was all
4:07 pm
close hold stuff. how did the information leak out. >> the white house won't say. some experts are worried that iran might try to fight back. >> i'm really worried about retaliation. you can't forget that iran is no slouch when it comes to cyber operations. and we have to be very careful that iran doesn't try to do something, attack an american nuclear plant, for instance. >> and proof of that power is in the numbers. these attacks called olympic games once took out 1,000 of iran's 5,000 centrifuges. john, back to you in new york. >> john: peter doocy live for us in washington. thanks. the man who admits shooting the unarmed teenager trayvon martin is headed back behind bars. today a judge in central florida revoked george zimmerman's bail. he has been in hiding since posting $150,000 in bond in april. now he has just 4 will hours to surrender. the ruling came after prosecutors accused zimmerman and his wife of lying to the court during that bond hearing the zimmermans said they would
4:08 pm
have trouble scraping together the money needed to make bail. prosecutors say zimmerman was sitting on $135,000 from donations to his web site. they say his wife knew about that cash all along. listen. >> i would argue to the court that is an egregious violation in terms of the representations that were made to this court. it was misleading and i don't know what other words to use than it was a blatant lie. >> his attorney tells us it's all a big misunderstanding. >> do i think that the zimmerman family was acting with constraints they thought they h i don't think they believed they had free access though that money. i think that was evident by the way they used it and didn't use it. >> remember, zimmerman faces second degree murder charges in the shooting back in february. he told police he shot 17-year-old travon martin in self-defense but prosecutors say zimmerman profiled the teen, followed him through his gated community and then shot him dead. steve harrigan with the news
4:09 pm
live in our south florida newsroom tonight. steve, how important is this latest development in the case? >> john, in the short-term, it means that george zimmerman is going back to jail. perhaps as early as sunday. in the bigger picture, it really opens up a line of attack for the prosecution. they are likely to try and make the argument that george zimmerman lied about having no money. he lied about having no second passport. and he lied about the event that took place on the night of the shooting, john. >> john: and what happens next, steve? >> next we're likely to learn more about george zimmerman when the judge releases over the next few days statements zimmerman made to police on the night of the shooting. in the meantime, we're likely to see a trial not until next year on those second degree murder charges. and it may be the case that the defense attorney for zimmerman filed the motion under florida's stand your ground law that zimmerman was acting in self-defense. if he does so, that means it will be decided not by a jury but by the judge, john. >> john: what was it, steve, that ultimately led the judge
4:10 pm
to decide that the zimmermans were misleading the court it? >> was jail house conversations between journalism and his wife. conversations that were taped. and it seemed the two were using obvious code to refer to the money. using 100 to mean $100,000, for example. >> john: steve harrigan in miami for us tonight. thanks so much. a new slaughter in syria leaves blood on the ground. so why is russia's president defending the regime. you will hear what he says coming up on "the fox report." ue good insurance. yup, i've got...

>> reports of a new massacre in syria as the united nations secretary general warns of a possible all out civil war. ache at activists say shot and killed 11 workers on their way home from a factory and dumped their bodies in a the field. the syrian government reportedly denied responsibility and blamed rebel fighters for the blood bath. this was the third alleged massacre in syria in a week.

4:15 pm
it's a rebel strong hold and for the last three or four days, we have seen heavy, heavy artillery and a barrage of rockets hitting that city. the u.s. and many other countries in europe are pressuring russia to try distance itself from the assad regime with very little success so far. president putin did say that his country is behind any peaceful political solution for the violence in syria and while hillary clinton seemed skeptical of that claim. she said she did support any help that they would get from the russian government in terms of ending the conflict in syria. that peaceful political process seems like it's very very unlikely john. >> a fox weather center -- weather alert powerful storms moving through the coast. you can see it's stretching from florida all the way up to new york. now there are severe weather warnings in maryland, virginia
