Why the New York Times and not the Wall Street Journal?
There are some explosive reports in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal too. This is bad.

October 19th, 1960. When Jack and Jackie climbed into their convertible for the parade, rain seemed imminent. But according to an enthusiastic report in the next day’s New York Times, “just as he was about to start up Broadway from WhiteWall Street, the sun shone as if a switch had been turned on.” By the time the motorcade reached Wall Street, the crush of the crowd was so intense that Jackie told a reporter, “It felt like the sides of the car were bending.” According to Mayer Robert Wagner Jr., the turnout for Kennedy’s ticker-tape parade was “the greatest reception anybody has ever received in this section of the city in its history.”
Just weeks after taking over both houses of Congress, the Republican party is already aggressively moving to weaken legislation aimed at reining in big banks and protecting the public. According to the New York Times, Wall Street is holding the strings.

Asian equities were mixed on the last trading day of the week as concerns over Ebola and China offset gains on Wall Street. A doctor in New York tested positive for the Ebola virus, the New York Times reported early on Friday, after returning from West Africa last week. Speaking at a press conference, New York Mayor de Blasio said officials believe "very few" people had contact with the doctor since his return. Markets reacted quickly to the news, with the Japanese yen strengthening 0.3 percent against the greenback and Dow futures dropping over 70 points before paring losses. Meanwhile, attention in Asia was on China where official data showed new home prices falling 1.3 percent on year in September, the first annual drop in nearly two years. The report heightened concerns over the country's property market, which many experts say poses the single biggest risk to the economy. U.S. stocks surged on Thursday, with all three major indices climbing over 1 percent each, following strong third-quarter results ...

Hillary-The-Hawk Flies Again POSTED AUGUST 15, 2014 By Ralph Nader “Hillary works for Goldman Sachs and likes war, otherwise I like Hillary,” a former Bill Clinton aide told me sardonically. First, he was referring to her cushy relationships with top Wall Street barons and her $200,000 speeches with the criminal enterprise known as Goldman Sachs, which played a part in crashing the U.S. economy in 2008 and burdening taxpayers with costly bailouts. Second, he was calling attention to her war hawkish foreign policy. Last week, Hillary-The-Hawk emerged, once again, with comments to The Atlantic attacking Obama for being weak and not having an organized foreign policy. She was calling Obama weak despite his heavy hand in droning, bombing and intervening during his Presidency. While Obama is often wrong, he is hardly a pacifist commander. It’s a small wonder that since 2008, Hillary-The-Hawk has been generally described as, in the words of the New York Times journalist Mark Landler, “more hawkish than ...
BuzzFeed: we report news differently now – but is it better? BuzzFeed has poured resources into becoming a 'serious' news provider. But can its coverage ever be truly comprehensive? Peter Preston The Observer, Saturday 16 August 2014 Buzzfeed: part *** Bits, part Answers, part Economist and Sunday Times colour mag. There are times – archetypal digital times – when too much hype and PR tripe gets in the way. Consider, for instance, last week's excited headlines over the fact that American Venture Capitalists had invested $50m in Buzzfeed, the wunderkind of website growth (currently claimed at 75% a year). Factor in the usual Wall Street multiples and that, supposedly, makes BuzzFeed worth $850m – as against the $250m Jeff Bezos from Amazon paid last year for the Washington Post. What? BuzzFeed worth over three times more than the mighty Post? Or nearly half as much as the New York Times? Trim the tripe and pass the vinegar … Nothing, of course, diminishes the fact that BuzzFeed is an internet phe ...

The Astounding Conspiracy Theories of Wall Street Genius Mark Gorton Hamilton Nolan Filed to: CONSPIRACY THEORIES 4/10/14 3:50pm Mark Gorton is a prominent financier and a respected entrepreneur. He founded the music sharing site Limewire, and he runs Tower Research, a famed high-frequency trading firm. Gorton also believes that the "ruthless" secret cabal that assassinated JFK and planned 9/11 could be coming to kill his family. Mark Gorton does not have a reputation as a crackpot. Quite the opposite. He's beenfavorably profiled in the New York Times for his business acumen and charitable deeds. His experience as the head of Limewire—which disrupted the music industry and then lost a $100 million lawsuit as a result—was closely followed by the press. And when Michael Lewis's blockbuster new book about high frequency trading was published recently,prominent media outlets turned to Gorton to learn what HFT firms are really like. The Huffington Post even dubbed him "the new face of Wall Street." He is a ...

When someone tells you we live in a "post-industrial" age, you might want to check their facts. The dirty secret is that there are more than enough industrial jobs to go around – they're just being done with appallingly low efficiency in 3rd world sweatshops! The photo above is taken from a New York Times article about the drift of the production of manhole covers from the US to India. American manufacturers like the Neenah Foundry Company (formerly a primary producer of these manhole covers) are long gone or in and out of bankruptcy, semi-skilled (and sometimes skilled) industrial work – from the shop floor to the engineering department – proliferates in India, Mexico, China, El Salvador, and anywhere Wall Street and corporate America can oppress workers enough to satisfy their shareholders. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is essentially a reflection of China's ascendancy, and the desire of the west to shift sweatshops to Vietnam, Chile, Bangladesh and other countries that keep their workers in ...

Flight 370 The CIA Hoax: Gordon Duff Today we are told that the fate of Flight 370 is known, not yet identified debris has been spotted in what is called “the Southern Indian Ocean,” perhaps more appropriately described as “north of Antarctica.” We also know that the 777/200 is a “fly by wire” aircraft with controls in place that allow the CIA to remotely pilot the plane “in case of emergency.” We were able to verify the design and implementation of this system through Boeing, Raytheon and commercial pilots. “BAD NEWS” The descriptions today in the New York Times and other publications are purposefully inaccurate and contradictory. Their explanations of how commercial aircraft communicate and are tracked are fanciful at best, at worst “criminal.” CIA CONTROLS COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT When Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was reported as having crashed in the South China Sea, a massive cover up began yet no one will speak of it, nothing is written of it and its broad consequences are a su . ...
News Flash: Health Care Reform Initial Open Enrollment Period Extended “for some”. From an article in the NAHU News today: Though announced late Tuesday night, March 25, 2014 news that the Obama Administration would partially delay this year’s ACA open enrollment deadline garnered heavy coverage across major national papers, websites, and beltway publications. On its front page, the New York Times (3/26, A1, Pear, Subscription Publication) reports that with the official March 31 deadline looming, the Obama Administration now says it will allow people who tried to enroll for healthcare coverage but were impeded by technical problems with the Federal exchange more time to apply. Under the Administration plan, “some people will be given a special enrollment period, beyond the March 31 deadline, if they can show they were not able to enroll because of an error by the federal exchange or by the Department of Health and Human Services.” Also on its front page, the Washington Post (3/26, A1, Goldste .. ...
I'm looking for input. I like to read my national news online. I used to read the New York Times, until they started charging for their website. Then I switched to the Washington Post-but now they are limiting how much I can read without paying (yes, I am cheap). Who here uses a pay news site, and if so , which one do you use? I am leaning toward the New York Times, or the Wall Street Journal. Looking for something that's a little more in depth than CNN or Fox News, for example.

Just in case anyone has any questions . Herbalife Comments on New York Times Report Exposing Pershing Square's Unprecedented Tactics to Destroy Company LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) today commented on a March 10, 2014, New York Times report "After Big Bet, Hedge Fund Pulls the Levers of Power," by Michael S. Schmidt, Eric Lipton and Alexandra Stevenson. The article details how Bill Ackman of Pershing Square has employed a sophisticated and unprecedented campaign to exert pressure on lawmakers and regulators to investigate and destroy Herbalife, all to protect the $1 billion bet he made against the company. Herbalife issued the following statement: For the past 15 months, Bill Ackman has executed an unfounded, relentless and fraudulent public attack on Herbalife's business model, blasting Herbalife to any media outlet or hedge fund audience willing to listen. As The New York Times reports, Ackman has, out of desperation, shifted his focus from Wall Street to Washington and key states ...
Can you believe that neither the The Wall Street Journal nor the New York Times even mentioned that Lois Lerner took the 5th again yesterday? I can't. And that is something that everyone should worry about regardless of party affiliation, because if the IRS is corrupt ( and taking the 5th by one of the IRS's top officials certainly indicates there is a smidgen of corruption at the bare minimum ;), then it could effect any of us and our elections based on the the whims and leanings of IRS personnel. I'm so frustrated that she isn't being forced to say what she knows. Either she is guilty or she is covering for someone else. They have the emails to show it. Why don't they give her immunity? I think she is protecting someone else and herself and feels this way she can accomplish that. So, why be hated by those who are die hard party liners despite corruption for outing higher ups when she can just keep saying nothing by "respectively taking the fifth under the advice of counsel" and look guilty as all get ou ...
Two largest newspapers in America (New York Times and Wall Street Journal) did not even report in today's news that Lois Lerner pleads the 5th AGAIN - IRS targeting conservatives. You tell me what side of the fence main stream media is on - can we trust main stream media? NO, this is a prime example.

AFSCME, part 2 State/Local MI: Detroit Turns Bankruptcy Into Challenge of Banks MARY WILLIAMS WALSH, New York Times, FEBRUARY 3, 2014, 9:10 PM Detroit’s bankruptcy is rapidly shaping up as a battle of Wall Street vs. Main Street, at least as far as the city’s creditors are concerned. . The suit, brought by the city’s emergency manager, Kevyn D. Orr, seeks to invalidate complex transactions that helped finance Detroit’s pension system in 2005. In a not-so-veiled criticism, the city said the deal was done “at the prompting of investment banks that would profit handsomely from the transaction.” . Bankruptcy experts who are not involved in Detroit’s case said it would, in fact, be possible for the city’s pensioners to come out at the top of the pecking order, even though they were on par with the general-obligation bondholders when the bankruptcy began.

In my last year on Wall Street, my bonus was $3.6 million — and I was angry because it wasn’t big enough. I wanted more money for exactly the same reason an alcoholic needs another drink: I was addicted." - A remarkable op-ed from last Sunday's *New York Times*
New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks wrote yesterday that we should be focusing on the "interrelated social problems of the poor" rather than inequality, and they are fundamentally different. Baloney. (1) When almost all the gains from growth go to the top, the Middle Class doesn’t have the purchasing power necessary for buoyant growth, which means high unemployment. Slow growth and high unemployment hit the poor especially hard because they’re the first to be fired, last to be hired, and most likely to bear the brunt of declining wages and benefits. (2) When the Middle Class is stressed, it has a harder time being generous to those in need. The “interrelated social problems” of the poor presumably will require some money, but the cupboard is bare, and the Middle Class doesn’t want to, nor does it feel it can afford to, pay more in taxes. (3) America’s shrinking Middle Class also hobbles upward mobility. Not only is there less money for good schools, job training, and social serv ...

"There are rumors of Russian provocateurs in the crowds and the mobilization of riot police to move toward Kiev. For two decades Ukraine has been the powder keg that never blew, mocking a CIA prediction in the early 1990s of likely civil war. But violence is now a possibility, which could destabilize Europe. If Mr. Yanukovych does move toward a Moscow customs union by fiat, he would split the country," the Wall Street Journal writes in an editorial."The true surprise—and one that should inspire democrats around the world—is the spontaneous and spirited resistance of Ukrainian civil society to this about-face. For more than a week, Ukrainians have been protesting in the Euromaidan, and in front of government buildings throughout the capital and across the country. They have done so in miserable winter weather and in the face of police brutality," writes Chrystia Freeland in the New York Times."Mr Klitschko is one of several opposition figures vying to become de facto leader of the demonstrations that b ...

* * Another prostitute will be on the loose in Washington DC. For his entire Senate career, Joe Lieberman did the bidding of powerful interests. He helped insurance companies kill the public option. He helped the military-industrial complex get us into Iraq. And he was a friend of Wall Street. After leaving the Senate, Lieberman told the New York Times, "I'm not going to lobby. For sure." This past week, MSNBC reported that Lieberman is now a lobbyist. Lieberman will open direct lines to politicians -- but only for those who pay. If we're going to combat legalized bribery in Congress, we need to pass laws that strengthen the influence of voters.

"Fantasy sports" are hugely popular, but when fans "draft" players for their teams, they "own" only the players' statistics. Recently, Wall Street and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs created Fantex Holdings, which will allow investors to buy actual pieces of real players -- namely, rights to 20 percent of the player's lifetime earnings (including licensing and product endorsement deals). The firm told The New York Times in October that it will soon stage an "IPO" for budding NFL star Arian Foster and hopes to sign up many more athletes, plus singers and actors similarly early in their careers. (On the other hand, Fantex's lawyers drew up a 37-page list of potential investment risks, such as injuries, slumps and scandals -- and the fact that the stock will trade only on Fantex's private exchange.)

THIS FROM “NUMBERS USA” IN TODAY’S E-MAIL ...: It didn't take long for some in the mainstream media to attribute the results of Tuesday's two gubernatorial elections to the immigration positions, and the support or lack thereof from Hispanics, of the Republican candidates. Shortly after both the races in New Jersey and Virginia were called, New York Times reporter Julia Preston posted a story with a headline and lead: Lessons on Immigration in Two Governors' Races Republicans in Congress studying the results from the governors' elections in New Jersey and Virginia on Tuesday see two starkly different test cases for how the party should move on immigration. With Chris Christie receiving support from 50% of Hispanics in New Jersey compared to Ken Cuccinelli's 29% support from Hispanics in Virginia, it was almost too easy for anyone who supports amnesty and massive increases in legal immigration to immediately point out that Christie's recent embrace of in-state tuition for illegal aliens and Cuccinell ...

How Food Giants Keep Us Sick, Fat and Coming Back for More. Michael Moss’ new book reveals exactly how the food industry uses three key ingredients to create never-satisfied cravings for very unhealthy foods. The international obesity epidemic didn’t just happen by accident. Sure, people’s lifestyle habits shifted from active to sedentary. And, yes, we moved to the suburbs and stopped cooking at home so much. But a new book suggests a more calculated and insidious reason why two-thirds of American adults and one-third of children are overweight or obese: The food industry started crafting foods that were of little nutritional value but kept consumers reaching for more. Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, by New York Times investigative reporter Michael Moss, is a detailed look at how the food industry has contributed to America’s nutritional mess by infusing processed foods with what he calls the “pillars” of the industry: sugar, salt and fat. Moss’ reporting turned up evidence th ...
authorities who suspect that the bank turned a blind eye to Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. That’s yet another headache in a week of migraines for Am erica’s largest bank; last Friday JPMorgan Chase reached a tentative $13 billion settlement with federal prosecutors for its alleged manipulation of mortgage securities, which helped trigger the Great Recession. There may be more pain to come as the megabank faces litigation on a number of fronts. And JPMorgan Chase is not alone – it is one of several banks being investigated by the government for mortgage fraud. While many headlines in the financial press accuse the government of conducting a witch hunt, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Gretchen Morgenson offers Bill a different perspective: “If the Justice Department were being tough on Wall Street they would be talking about bringing criminal cases against individuals who helped to perpetrate this immense crisis.” she said. Morgenson adds that the investigations into JPMorgan Chase show ...

Although numbers are difficult to ascertain--as is usual with the e-retailing giant--Amazon.com has been lowering or eliminating discounts on many printed scholarly, university press and backlist titles, much to the chagrin of some authors who say the prices closer to the suggested retail price lower their books' sales and exposure, the New York Times wrote. Prices at Amazon "have all the permanence of plane fares," the paper wrote, citing many small press and academic publishers and books published by those presses. Amazon, which didn't directly answer questions about why certain titles are priced higher than in the past, continues to discount many current and popular titles. Because Amazon "sells about one in four printed books" and has no close rivals, many believe that less competition is responsible for the tendency. Stephen Blake Mettee, chairman of the Independent Book Publishers Association, called this a classic move by a large company that has come to dominate a market. "You lower your prices un ...
This is unfair to these young workers!!! The banks have been bailed out time and time again. Many have played the dozens with homeowners seeking loan modifications selling their mortgages without their knowledge which began the loan modification loan process over again. Now, they are playing the students just to make more money. This is greedy and totally unacceptable. Fast food and retail workers across America are getting squeezed by Wall Street. According to the New York Times, some outfits like McDonald's are making their employees receive their wages on pre-paid debit cards pushed by mega banks like JP Morgan Chase. These cards then charge ridiculous fees for things like making purchases, using an ATM, or even just card inactivity. Demand workers stop getting nickeled-and-dimed! Milwaukee worker Devonte Yates is one of the workers featured in the story. In it he shares how most months the bank's fees can add up to as much as $50. For low wage workers in Milwaukee making $7.25, $50 could mean the diff ...
Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks commented on a New York Times article detailing how bank lobbyists did not wait for lawmakers to draft a bill to repeal broad parts of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial regulations. Instead, they rewrote it themselves. Further, Democratic and Republican lawmakers who "supported the bills championed by Wall Street received twice as much in contributions from financial institutions compared with those who opposed them." One supporter, Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), admitted, “It’s appalling, it’s disgusting, it’s wasteful and it opens the possibility of conflicts of interest and corruption. It’s unfortunately the world we live in.” Indeed, this story epitomizes our corrupt political system, which Uygur wants to fight through Wolf PAC. Watch:

Watch your wallets. For years, Wall Street's biggest investors have made their zillions buying low-priced assets, pumping up prices just enough to get smaller investors excited about jumping into the fray, and then bailing out before the bubble they created bursts, leaving smaller investors holding the bag. That may be happening now with housing. With the Fed keeping interest rates near zero, large investment firms are borrowing money at rock-bottom rates and using those billions to scoop up homes that are now priced way below what they were worth in 2006. In the last housing bubble, you remember, the Street made big money with its easy mortgage financing. This time, investment companies like the Blackstone Group are buying thousands of homes in the same areas where the last bubble hit hardest; Blackstone has so far bought about 26,000 homes in nine states, according to the New York Times. Most of these investment firms are renting out these homes until the market rises enough for them to cash out. But so ...
Everyone knows the Wall Street crash in 1929 eventually led to the Great Depression and many ruined investors jumped from the windows of their towering buildings. Right? Well sort of. Knowledge of this historical event is so widespread that references to it can be found everywhere, from movies to the Occupy Wall Street movement. But.this legendary string of suicides never actually happened. Will Rogers, a popular comedian at the time, happened to be in New York on "Black Thursday," Oct. 24, 1929 when the market crashed. In his nationally syndicated newspaper column for that day, he wrote: "When Wall Street took that tail spin, you had to stand in line to get a window to jump out of, and speculators were selling space for bodies in the East River". A London tabloid picked the quote up and the myth grew, until the "suddenly bankrupt stockbroker leaping from a window" became a stereotype. In reality, only two suicides by jumping occurred on Wall Street between the crash and the end of 1929, and one of tho .. ...

Bank Lobbyists Writing Legislation That Weakens Financial Rules: Report May 24, 2013 A bill that was approved quickly by the House Financial Services Committee was essentially written by Citigroup, according to a New York Times article Friday, citing emails its reporters reviewed. The bill would exempt broad swaths of trades from new regulation. According to the report, Citigroup’s C -0.83% recommendations were included in 70 lines of the committee’s 85-line bill, while two critical parts prepared by Citigroup in conjunction with other Wall Street banks, were copied nearly word for word. The fact that banks aren’t leaving it to lawmakers to draft legislation is an indication of Wall Street’s resurgence on Capitol Hill. Nevertheless, the measures approved by the House Financial Services Committee – many of which were agreed to on a bipartisan basis – aren’t likely to become law any time soon. The Senate Banking Committee isn’t likely to take up any similar provisions in the immediate future ...
Nate Silver, the New York Times' political number-cruncher, has earned his bragging rights after schooling conservative pollsters in the 2012 presidential election. However, his attempted "debunking" of one aspect of the IRS scandal is nothing of the sort.

Interesting information about the sequester per Speaker Boehner's press office (Sources NYTimes, WSJ, Bob Woodward, and others): You’re going to see President Obama at campaign-style rallies again this week, demanding higher taxes and blaming Republicans for his ‘sequester’ mess. Here’s what he won’t be telling you: This is President Obama’s sequester. “The idea for sequestration did come from the White House, as news accounts made clear at the time,” reports the New York Times. As Speaker Boehner wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “it is a product of the president's own failed leadership.” Republicans passed a bill with smarter spending cuts (twice), but the president’s Senate hasn’t passed it (or any other replacement bill). Senate Democrats haven’t passed a budget in four years either. The House voted to replace the president’s sequester in May 2012 and again last December. Each bill targeted waste and fraud, and would help put us on a path to balance the budget in 10 years. ...

Experts suggest that Chinese government routinely employs 'vast army of hackers' to carry out covert spying campaigns Revelations that China apparently targeted the New York Times in a campaign of cyber-espionage have cast a rare spotlight on attempts by Beijing to crack down on any criticism of its ruling elite. The move, which was detected and then monitored by the Times's digital staff, is believed to have been linked to the newspaper's hard-hitting October exposé on the vast wealth accumulated by the family of leading communist and outgoing premier Wen Jiabao. Government officials in Beijing have vehemently denied the allegations, though that has prompted scepticism among New York Times executives who devoted long weeks to tracking, checking and ultimately exposing the move. "This is business-as-usual from what we can tell for aspects of the Chinese government," said Marc Frons, head of the newspaper's digital technology and its chief information officer. Frons told The Guardian that the paper was ex ...
Las Vegas “Godfather” puts out a hit on Chuck Hagel "Obviously the Defense Department cannot target domestic organized crime. The real reason Adelson put out the Hagel hit will never be reported in the New York Times, Israel’s flagship “American” publication. The truth is that Sheldon Adelson, like Meyer Lansky, heads a foreign crime syndicate whose headquarters is the “criminal state” of Israel. The Zionist mob views Hagel as a threat to their operations. Just as Bobby Kennedy was a threat to J. Edgar “there is no organized crime in America” Hoover, any US Senator who proclaims: “I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator” threatens the taboo on admitting that Israel owns and operates Congress, the media, and much of Wall Street – and does so on behalf of a foreign-based mob that is said to control as much as one-third of global organized crime."
Corporate Gold on the Fiscal Cliff By Bill Moyers, Michael Winship, Moyers and Company 13 January 13 An economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's book, End This Depression Now!, there’s a chapter titled "The Second Gilded Age" in which he describes the extraordinary rise in wealth and power of the very rich during this era of unregulated greed. Since Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980, the top one percent of Americans have seen their incomes increase by 275 percent. After accounting for inflation, the typical hourly wage for a worker has increased just $1.23. Big Money, as Krugman writes in his book, buys Big Influence. And that’s why the financiers of Wall Street never truly experience regime change -- their cash brings both political parties to heel. So it is that the policies that got us where we are today -- in this big ditch of chronic financial depression -- have done little for most, but have been very good to a few at the top. But they’re not satisfied with having only most of it ...

Mitt Romney’s Auto Bailout Bonanza Mitt Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout has haunted him on the campaign trail, especially in Rust Belt states like Ohio. There, in September, the Obama campaign launched television ads blasting Romney’s November 2008 New York Times op-ed, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.” But Romney has done a good job of concealing, until now, that he and wife Ann personally gain ed at least $15.3 million from the bailout. Moreover, the hedge funds of just three of Romney’s most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion off the bail-out. Their gains, and the Romneys’, were astronomical — over 3,000 percent on their investment. Greg Palast explains how Mitt and Ann made millions — and Mitt’s hedge fund donors made billions — from the bailout he condemned in this exclusive investigation for The Nation:
"Two of the Koch Brothers, Charles and David, pledged $130 million to elect candidates who favor unrestrained corporate profiteering...The senators and congressmen they fund and elect are not representing the United States—they are representing Koch and its oil industry cronies, Big Pharma, and the Wall Street banksters currently mounting a hostile takeover of our government...For my part, I have no problem characterizing these corporate-centric super-PACs as treasonous. They are designed to subvert American democracy and turn our country over to the moneyed aristocracy. Their aspirations are apostasy to the notion of democratic governance that our Founders intended. We are now in a free fall toward old-fashioned oligarchy, that noxious thieving, tyrannical, oppressive species of government that America’s original settlers fled Europe to escape." ~ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Excerpted from the introduction to the New York Times bestseller Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy S ...
Danger of energy drinks, aFDA Investigating Five Deaths Linked To Monster Energy Drinks. On the front page of its business section, the New York Times (10/23, B1, Meier, Subscription Publication) reports, "Five people may have died over the past three years after drinking Monster Energy, a popular energy drink that is high in caffeine, according to incident reports recently released by the Food and Drug Administration." The Times notes that the FDA report does not "prove a link between Monster Energy and the deaths or other health problems," and that is unclear "whether the incidents involved other factors, like alcohol or drugs." The Los Angeles Times (10/23, Nelson, Terhune) reports that the FDA is now "investigating" the reports. In response, a Monster Beverage spokesman said the company is "unaware of any fatality anywhere that has been caused by its drinks." The AP (10/23, Dishneau, Perrone) adds that "the news follows last week's filing in California of a wrongful death suit by the parents of a 1 ...
The Entitlement of Wealth Mayor Bloomberg has launched a Super PAC to intervene in various elections across the country. The mayor has many well-known views on social and economic issues, and he’s using his Super PAC to foster the candidacies of people who share his views. So far so good, and his activities are certainly within the spirit of the Citizens United case. Mr. Bloomberg raised concerns about both President Obama and Governor Romney in an interview with the New York Times . One particular statement about President Obama’s proposal to increase taxes on the wealthy caught my eye. “This business of ‘Well, they can afford it; they should pay their fair share?’ Who are you to say ‘Somebody else’s fair share?’ ” Wealthy folks have all kinds of views and gigantic microphones. We get a steady diet from the likes of the Koch Brothers, Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, Steve Forbes, and Robert Rubin. While these people disagree on a variety of issues, they share a common characteristic ...

The attack on the American consulate in Benghazi in which the ambassador to Libya was killed seriously disrupted a major intelligence operation based there, according to briefings by Washington officials. As the attack on the consulate was under way, around 30 Americans were driven at high speed to an accommodation block – sometimes referred to as a “safe house” though it was no better protected than the consulate itself – but came under renewed attack there. They were then taken to the airport and flown directly to Tripoli and out of the country. According to the New York Times, they included at least 12 CIA agents who are now “scattered across Europe and the United States” – something which is hindering the FBI investigation into the killing of the ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three other staff. The paper said the CIA team had been playing a “crucial role in conducting surveillance and collecting information on an array of armed militant groups”. It quoted an official as saying its ...

I was looking at some old emails that I had not gotten around to read. One of these was . From: Front Porch Politics To: GAWLINSKIE Date: Sun, Jan 29, 2012 11:17 am Romney Backed by Goldman Sachs, Bailout Banks The top donor to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, investment banking and securities firm Goldman Sachs, received over $10 billion in emergency lending and bailouts from the Federal Reserve after the 2008 financial meltdown, according to public sources and published reports. Goldman backed Obama for election in 2008, and the firm, like many Wall Street institutions, is now backing Mitt Romney for president. Romney has long had a close relationship with Goldman Sachs. In 1999 Romney purchased initial IPO shares in Goldman that netted him $1.1 million in profits when he sold them in 2010. And The New York Times recently reported that "many of the assets in Romney's blind trust" are managed by Goldman. Today, Goldman is Romney's largest donor. And nine of Romney's top 20 ...
Yolanda, The latest poll numbers are in, and Joe Donnelly has opened a narrow lead over Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock, 45% to 42%. This is great news – but it also paints a huge target on Joe’s back for Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and their Wall Street backers heading into the final weeks of the campaign. The only way we can hang on to this lead through the coming onslaught of vicious, misleading secret-donor backed attacks is to make sure Joe has the resources to fight back against every lie, distortion and smear they throw at us. Click here to contribute $5 to Joe Donnelly right now. Last week, the nonpartisan Cook Political Report officially rated our race as a “toss up,” and New York Times election analyst Nate Silver said that contributing to Joe has an 8-times greater impact that a contribution to Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.

m Who also RICH? The mutual fund that the Obamas have invested in also held 94,582,281 million shares of General Electric, valued at $1.4 billion, as of the SEC filing. The multinational conglomorate has a long history of outsourcing – according to a new book cited by the New York Times, in 1989, “G.E. became the first U.S. company to outsource software work to India.” Obama also has close ties to GE’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, who was appointed as chairman of his outside panel of economic advisers last year. In addition to Apple and GE, the Obamas’ fund listed 10,655,961 shares of International Business Machines, valued at $1.9 billion. As the Wall Street Journal reported in 2009, “The technology giant has been steadily building its work force in India and other locations while reducing the number of workers based in the U.S. Foreign workers accounted for 71% of Big Blue’s nearly 400,000 employees at the start of the year, up from about 65% in 2006.”
Maureen Dowd Falls Out of Love By Alan Caruba I Do not subscribe to The New York Times and do not read it with only one exception. Every Sunday I do read Maureen Dowd’s column. She is a very good writer which, in itself, is reason enough to read her, but more importantly she is a weather vane pointing the direction that liberals are taking on issues, individuals, and events. Ms. Dowd joined The Times in 1983 as a metropolitan reporter, eventually becoming a columnist in 1995. Her columns regarding Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal earned her a Pulitzer Prize. She had become the rare doyenne of The Times ever since, known for not suffering fools easily and for drawing blood when her political antennas pick up an egregious deception. Despite her liberal credentials, she is far less easily duped than most. After attending the Democratic Party convention in Charlotte and listening to President Obama’s acceptance speech, she jumped ship, abandoning her previous opinions of him. In the Sunday, September 9 ...

Mr. Romney's negatives are also easier to reverse. Mr. Obama's, by contrast, are related to his performance in office, especially on the economy. A July 16 CBS/New York Times poll found 46% of voters (and 53% of independents) saying that his economic policies "will never improve" the economy. That's a very harsh assessment. Only 38% of registered voters in Monday's NBC/Wall Street Journal poll thought Mr. Obama has "good ideas for how to improve the economy," and 43% of adults said in a July 8 Washington Post/ABC News poll that Mr. Obama's handling of the economy was a "major reason to oppose" his candidacy. Mr. Romney's negatives are more diffuse. Is he really an outsourcer of jobs to China? A rich "vampire capitalist?" Is he "weird," to use a favorite epithet of Mr. Obama's top strategist, David Axelrod? These are the negatives of the unknown. At next week's convention in Tampa, Mr. Romney will have a very big stage on which to begin dispelling these negatives by providing voters a stronger sense of who ...

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders: Big Money: "Too many Democratic voters [are] ... not nearly outraged enough about Big Money's undue influence ...," Charles Blow said in a New York Times column. He cited a report by Sen. Bernard Sanders that 26 billionaires have donated more than $61 million to super PACs this year. ''What the Supreme Court did in Citizens United," Sanders said, "is to say to these same billionaires and the corporations they control: 'You own and control the economy; you own Wall Street; you own the coal companies; you own the oil companies. Now, for a very small percentage of your wealth, we're going to give you the opportunity to own the United States government.' ''
It's interesting that most Republicans don't understand that in most media there's a ethical clear line between editorial (reporting events and digging up facts) and opinion. That must be why many tar respected organizations such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and even the Wall Street Journal as horrifically liberal. Maybe that's because the conservative's media of choice, Fox News, has no such barrier between their reporting and corporate ideology.

Pocketbook Strategy’ key to election: John Boehner on the house floor, “Americans vote their pocketbook,” is an old truism that is lost on the Young Guns mentality; that fails to account for all Americans voting their pocketbook. This is why the soft numbers in this New York Times pole about who Middle Class feels speaks to their pocketbook issues is good news indeed for the Obama campaign. In the end it’s not about Wall Street, Banking or the Richest one percent. Instead it’s about a stack of bills that exists in every Middle and Working Class family home in America that can’t be paid in total. It’s about the agonizing process of deciding what bills can I pay this month, and which bills will I have to put off until later? Voters worry that electric might be shut off, or rent falling so far behind they are evicted, or having their cars and furniture repossessed. Mike FlynnMiddle Class Mike’
"Closely allied with this Morgan influence were a small group of Wall Street law firms, whose chief figures were Elihu Root, the Dulles Brothers, (and) John J. McCloy... On this basis, there grew up in the twentieth century a power structure between London and New York which penetrated deeply into university life, the press, and... foreign policy... For example, it set up in Princeton a reasonable copy of the Round Table group's chief Oxford headquarters.

"It’s worth noting that you can devote your life to Community Service and be a total schmuck; you can spend your life on Wall Street and be a hero." – David Brooks: Columnist, New York Times
Going Public By: Rick Boxx On March 14th, Greg Smith, a former Wall Street executive, submitted his resignation to Goldman Sachs and published a letter in the New York Times explaining his reasons. He publicly blasted Goldman’s culture and their lack of concern for their customers’ best interests. Although I don’t know if Mr. Smith had conversations with his bosses prior to his letter, there is a preferred way to handle conflict. Jesus taught in Matthew 18:15, “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.” Although this directive was meant for Christians, the principle is helpful to all. If you have an issue with someone, give them a chance to fix it, before going public.
The New York Times published an article on May 14, 2012 concerning the question of whether the rich, from a moral standpoint, are good or bad. The story reported that“A recent study found that 10 percent of people who work on Wall Street are “clinical psychopaths” and that they exhibit an “unparalleled capacity for lying, fabrication, and manipulation.” The vivid term “clinical psychopath” brings to mind the berserk buzz-saw wielding investment banker played by Christian Bale in the film “American Psycho.” Since some 3.9 million people work in the financial services industry, a clinically-diagnosed horde of lunatics numbering almost 400,000 people would certainly be a matter of public concern, though it might only confirm some journalist’s view of American capitalism.
"SOME OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS FROM THE GOP PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE MIIT ROMNEY THAT WILL HURT HIM THIS NOVEMBER":(i) During the peak of the economic crisis of 2008 when the America's three automobile companies were facing possibility of bankruptcy and oven one million Middle Class jobs were on the line in the auto industries. President Obama wanted to bailout GM, Ford and Chrysler companies, Mitt Romney wrote an Op-Ed in the New York Times titled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt." and opposed the proposed bailout of the Detroit automobile industries (ii) During the worst housing market crisis in 2009 when millions of America's Middle Class home owners were facing foreclosures and needed the government bailout to stay afloat and keep their homes and their investments. President Obama had already bailed out the Wall Street for their financial recklessness that collapsed the entire American economy in the first instance, Mitt Romney responded and said "Let The Foreclosures Hit The Bottom."

YES! I found the Literature I've been looking for;;THEE "PRIME" EXAMPLE OF LIBERALISM.YES!.. You've got to read it, particularly if your a liberal.

Ever since March, when the New York Times decided to make a cause celebre out of the resignation of Greg Smith, a vice president at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., a cottage industry of first-person Wall Street departure stories has sprung up across the print media and blogosphere.
Draghi was director general of the Italian treasury from 1991 to 2001, where he was responsible for widespread privatization (sell-off of government holdings to private investors). From January 2002 to January 2006, however, he was a partner at Goldman Sachs on Wall Street, another CRIMINAL player. As already noted, “basing” the FSB at the BIS is not a comforting sign, considering the dark and CRIMINAL history of the BIS. Dr. Cuddy, writing in 1999, quoted media sources describing the BIS and its behind-the-scenes leaders as “this economic cabal . . . this secretive group . . . the financial barons who control the world’s supply of money” (Washington Post, June 28, 1998); “some of the world’s most powerful and least visible men . . . officials able to shift billions of dollars and alter the course of economies at the stroke of a pen” (New York Times, August 5, 1995); men who can “move huge amounts of money into and out of markets in a nanosecond” and “topple politicians with the cli ...
