Financial Armageddon

The housing market?

No.

The liberal media:

Weekday circulation at U.S. daily newspapers fell 2.1 percent in the six-month period ended in March . . . . Sunday circulation dropped 3.1 percent.

Go figure.

Furthermore here's a recent story which for obvious reasons didn't receive too much coverage by the "Fourth Estate:"

Shares of New York Times [Co.] have fallen 48 percent in three years. Net income fell 3 percent in 2004 and 13 percent in 2005, and the company posted a $543 million loss in 2006 after writing down the value of its New England publications. In the first quarter of 2007, profit dropped 32 percent.

Hmm.

On the bright side, however, when the dazed and confused malcontents who write for that pile of garbage inevitably are fired -- en masse -- it should not take them too much time to obtain replacement jobs.

There's always high demand for carnival clowns.

BryanD I thought you were warned to play nice,but with your intellect such warning are in vain. What do you expect. They, the print media in general have printed bias news since the communists took over the schools of journalism. If it were not for the false protections allowed these propaganda rags, they would be out of business because of lawsuits. Even the left knows that the print media is lying. With the advent of the internet, the lies become self evident. More than half the country is conservative or moderate. You can only spew lies so long and get away with it. They are cooked meat.

Right on Jayson. You hit a nerve in a BDS sufferer and they have very few nerves left. Most have been numbed or killed by excessive drug use.

In most publicly-held companies, such performance would lead to a major shake-up in the boardroom. In the NYT and some other companies which were formerly held by a family or small group (including several newspaper companies), public stock offerings were made by dividing stock into classes. Common stock shareholders share in the appreciation and may receive dividends, but don't have the voting clout of the shares retained by the original owners.

So, Pinch Sulzberger can keep his job - no matter how many lower-level employees lose theirs.

bryanD's comments appear gratuitous and personal to me. Banning him seems insufficient. Someone should speak to his parents.

This reminded me of the Monty Python skit where Ken Shabbey is describing his job cleaning men's lavoratories. Get's asked if there is any room for advancement and replies that after four years, they will give him a mop.

Javitz, you oughtta be down on your knees thanking the MSM, and in particular, the NYT and WaPo, for the yeoman's job they did in unquestioningly and unanalytically regurgitating the Iraq lies and half-truths from Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld et al from 2001-2003 that enabled you and your war-hugging neo-cons to sell the greatest disaster in American History.

You're gonna miss the MSM next time you have lies to sell the American public. It cou8ld be the end of your last best hope to fuel a new war in Iran.

Wieder, you post a link to Bill Moyers aka Comrade Lenin?

If Moyers looked at his wrist watch and told me the time I would not believe him.

There may even be some sane argument that Bush tried to deceive the American public. I have never seen or heard one, not one, ever, and that is because the left just does not get this facts and logic thing.

Feel free to argue that Bush is a crook, just do not cite a dishonest lunatic like Moyers.

How's this for logic (and it's in the Bill Moyers Special which you are so quick to deplore):

An administration source (probably Condi - my opinion, not Moyers) leaks the aluminum tubes story to the NYT.

The same day the article is published (Sept 8, 2002 I think), Cheney is on Meet the Press citing that article as proof of Saddam trying to develop nukes.

So if the administration leaks story and administration official refers to this leaked story as proof, then there is a sane argument that they knowingly deceived the American public.

Also, if the press conveys these stories without doing their own investigative journalism to determine their authenticity and they do not put 2-and-2 together realizing that the administration is simply confirming their own leaks, then they are carrying the administration's water and not serving as an independent free press, which is vital to a healthy democracy.

Please provide counter-arguments in the form of a logic statement, if you wish to rebut.

Feel free to argue that Bush is a crook, just do not cite a dishonest lunatic like Moyers.
Fred Z

I'm fairly young (25) so I'm not familiar with a lot of Moyers history, but I've seen some very disparaging remarks towards him on this blog (not just this post). In all seriousness, what did he do to deserve this vitriol? Is it just the fact that he doesn't share your worldview or are there actual events which provide proof of his dishonesty and lunacy?
