I can go on and on if you like but you get the idea.
There are those (such as at the New York Times) who claim you can't possibly cook the numbers, but you most certainly can.
The only economist mentioned in your link had this to say

Economist Lawrence Mishel: "There Was Nothing Particularly Strange About This Month's Jobs Reports." In a post on the Economic Policy Institute's blog, EPI President Lawrence Mishel wrote "there was nothing particularly strange about this month's jobs reports -- and certainly nothing to spur accusations of outright fraud" and called the claim that the BLS manipulated the jobs report a "slanderous lie"

Why when the numbers are high they are never questioned...in fact they are held up as a sign of the current administrations failures.

Now the number is lower (FYI still a poor number, and a sign of the admins failures) and it has been cooked. lol

It's not so much that they are low...because they are not, the figures are still terrible. It's how much the ONE figure changed, while every other indicator shows otherwise....that is what makes it odd. Comb over the charts and numbers on the BLS site and it doesn't take a economist to see things don't add up.
I am convinced it is the welfare/work "definition" changes that brought down the U3 as there were not even enough jobs created to cover those entering the workforce.
U6 (total) is unchanged at 14.7%....and the U3 (the big drop) is part of the U6. Shell game!

The numbers change all the time.
The "odd" thing about THIS set of numbers isn't that it's lower.
It's that it is the biggest drop in 29 years and it just happened to happen when obama needed them to drop below 8% and amazingly enough, the 2 people in charge of those numbers are huge obama supporters and donors.

It looks like the media is reporting it...it's on CNN. Of course they aren't making a huge deal of it like they did when it dropped. I wonder how many apologies will go out to the guys who were labeled whacko anti-Obama types for calling the big drop numbers what they were....fishy and impossible.
