If you ever see the market drop around triple digits for a given day and the mainstream news excuse is the dramatically falling Nikkei stock market of Japan, please understand this is a perfect example of media bullshit.
Last night their market plunged about 844 pts or 6.35% drop..
And today, we couldn't have cared one bit -we're up 86pts as of this writing..
Seems unimportant to most but always important to show the sincere disconnect between the US and global markets even though finance news tends to simplify things as if we're all inter-connected in this one-world new order...
The big question people tend to ask when concerning the media and politics is how objective are they when covering the President.. or really any President.
Is there a fawning bias? Or one that is hostile?
And if you ask Conservatives, they will most definitely say there is one that allows the President to get away with murder, and if you ask Liberals, they'll point to Fox News and say if there's any bias, its aggressive borderline hidden-racist...
Someone usually entered journalism because of either idealized motivations of seeking out 'justice' and 'truth', or because they have a passion for politics and over time have formulated strong ideological beliefs.
We believe most in the media is liberal.
But that's fine.
What bothers us is the incestuousness nature of media and politics.. Specifically where spouse or family members are connected highly in both the media empire and the White House.
For instance, we don't really care that CBS President Les Moonves' wife is Julie Chen who hosts CBS' Big Brother and co-hosts their 'The View' copycat show 'The Talk'. Beyond the fact, Chen has a guaranteed job w CBS forever, it means nothing in the grand scheme...
* ABC News President Ben Sherwood, is the brother of Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, a top national-security adviser to President Obama.
We're not implying anything illegal or deviant is occurring. As for the word 'unethical', you decide for yourself..
But lets just say if we were gamblers, we'd heavily wager that the ideological 'apple' does not fall far from the tree in these relationships, and leave it at that.
The fact that tens of millions of people actually believe we're in an economic recovery and feel contented about their lives, is testament enough to the damage they've inflicted upon the masses so their corporate shares wouldn't continue to plummet..
When you think of Washington DC, think of the famous 'Oz' of 'Wizard of Oz' fame.. A world few really know or understand, and with quite a lot of 'curtains'
