Bin Laden Kill Video Re-Editing, A Pakistani Military Asset Destroyed? / Politics / Mainstream Media

Deconstructing Meredith Whitney’s Municpal Bond Default Predictions / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Article Whitney Doesn’t Want You to Read - If I hired a full-time staff of 100 financial professionals specifically dedicated to the task of calling out all of the media’s so-called financial experts (largely comprised of lifelong snake oil salesmen and Wall Street hacks), pointing to their miserable track records, while setting the record straight on their exaggerations, drama-filled statements, bias, agendas, cheerleading and apocalyptic predictions, we would be unable to address even one-tenth of the propaganda that continues to invade the minds of Americans.

Fox News BUSTED For Manipulating Footage of Wisconsin Worker Protests (Video) / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Chris_Kitze

As teachers and students protested for three weeks in the state capitol of Wisconsin in a fight to let state workers keep their collective bargaining right, Fox News created facts that were far from the truth to push across their political agenda, fabricating poll results, broadcasting fake video, and spinning stories about reporter abuse. RT's Anastasia Churkina reports.

Mainstream Press and the GM Pump-and-Dump / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wanted to point out another example of the need to be critical when you come across "news."  

In the vast majority of cases, news stories are centered on hidden agendas that come from the top of the organization. Often, when the hidden message or twist on facts is meant to assist the agendas of America's fascist government, the orders are sent from a PR official at the White House. When the deceit is meant to help the agendas of the corporate side of America’s fascist government, the orders come from corporate executives themselves.

Huffington Post Alone Won’t Rescue AOL, A Case Study into Failure / Companies / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I reminded readers of a very lucrative (and what I felt was a very obvious) long-short equity strategy I discussed that would have yielded huge returns to those who opted to take on this risky maneuver.  

I normally don’t recommend that everyday investors take short positions because it’s extremely risk for many reasons. Most non-professional investors fail to recognize the risks involved with shorting securities because taking a short position is just a mouse click away if you have an online brokerage account. That in itself is an entirely different issue that needs to be addressed by the SEC.

U.S. Media Selling Views and Calling it News / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica's journalists are not "newshounds." They are nothing more than salesclerks, hocking the products their employers want to sell. The pretty faces that now function as most television news anchors are no different than the pretty models used to sell other products. The American "free" press is comprised of nothing more than a number of retail outlets which sell stories slanted to please their target audiences. As such, they exist merely to sell snake oil.

Is Putin pitiable, or is the FT corrupt? / Personal_Finance / Mainstream Media

By: Eric_Kraus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReading the FT on Russia, what is interesting is not what they write – it is why they write it. A friend of T&B was told face-to-face about six months ago by an FT editor that, as a journalist here, one’s role has to be ”to write about how awful Russia is”. (While, admittedly, T&B does not know many FT journalists in Poland, Belgium or Mexico, we strongly suspect that they have an entirely different mandate. Only in Russia has the paper descended to outright advocacy…)

Mainstream Press Journalism of Appeasement, Corruption, Smoke and Mirrors / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere’s a brief summation of my recent reporting: If we continue to let our politicians and wealthy members of society live in comfort, free from the consequences of their actions, we are complicit in our own demise.

Our country is so overrun with corruption, we cannot remain passive and expect things to get any better.

I'm not saying the editors of top financial newspapers and magazines sat down together and hashed out a plan to brainwash you and bankrupt you. No, I really don't think they did that. It only looks like they did it...

Paul Krugman a Shill for the Corporate State / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMurray Sabrin writes: Paul Krugman wears many hats – Princeton University professor, New York Times columnist, Nobel Laureate in Economics (2008), prolific author of scholarly books and journal articles, and now president of the Eastern Economic Association. The EEA is a regional scholarly group which publishes a journal and holds an annual academic conference in New York City every other year. The EEA is housed in the Anisfield School of Business at Ramapo College, where I have taught Corporate Finance and Financial Markets and Institutions for the past 25 years.

Mainstream Media Depression and Deflation Propaganda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Howard_Katz

Cause and Effect - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFanaticism has been defined as the policy of repeating the same actions while expecting a different result.  If that is the case, then we live in a society of fanatics, and it is absolutely essential to know this if one is to succeed in the financial markets.

In mid-September 2008, the New York Times began to scream, in a series of big headlines, that the nation was in a financial crisis.  I have studied the American media, and it is absolutely amazing.  The overwhelming majority of newspapers will pick up a line of propaganda from the Times and repeat it mindlessly ad infinitum.  After 2 weeks of Times propaganda the nation’s media had fallen in line, and in 10 days in early October the DJI fell by 3000 points (as the public read a large number of bearish articles about the financial system).

A: Could it be, because they are owned by Wall Street?

WSJ Wants Government Subsidies for Mainstream Media / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Harding writes: I almost choked when I read Lee Bollinger's op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal advocating public financial support of the mainstream media. This is the Lee Bollinger who is the president of Columbia University and was recently named deputy chair of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The article says more about the writer and the mainstream media than it does its subject matter. It is unbelievable and irresponsible that anyone in his position should seriously advocate subsidies for the press.

The Mainstream Media and the State Are Joined at the Hip, Sometimes Literally / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleS.M. Oliva writes: Jon Leibowitz and Ruth Marcus married in 1994. They were the perfect Washington power couple: He was chief counsel to Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) and she was a White House correspondent for the Washington Post. Sure, they were just cogs in the establishment, but they were still part of America's ruling class. And over the next decade-and-a-half, they solidified that standing. Marcus – who has worked at the Post for twenty-six years – rose through the ranks to become a member of the paper's editorial board and a regular op-ed columnist. Leibowitz remained with Sen. Kohl until 2000, when he joined the "private sector" as a lobbyist for the copyright industry (aka the Motion Picture Association of America). But in 2004 he returned to his natural habitat, the government, when he received one of five seats on the Federal Trade Commission.

The Soviet NY Times Our Own Lying Pravda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many myths about the current political scene, although one never would know it from reading the New York Times, and especially its editorial pages. For example, Paul Krugman continues to insist that Herbert Hoover followed the "liquidationist" advice of his treasury secretary, Andrew Mellon, and followed an "austerity" path. However, as Murray N. Rothbard noted in his classic America’s Great Depression, Hoover intervened in the economy at levels never seen before in U.S. History.
