Don't you read Paul Krugman's brillance in the NY Times?

Krugman is a paid gov't schill, planted in the NYT and given an MSM blog to spew false gov't doctrine to fight the influence of fact based economic media, like Naked Capitalism, ZeroHedge, etc....

His views are so 1984.

Dylan,

 

No mater what you read or what you say, you are still the same dumb shat that laughed off Peter Schiff time and time again. When the people really needed you, you were pompous, arrogant, and entrenched in the filthy system that you still serve.

Regardless of the color change you supposedly made, you can never be foregiven for such a foolish and ingorant perspective when the truth was there in front of you the whole time. Why anyone would watch, listen or read anything from you after missing all of this is beyond me. But hey, the mass is called the mass for a good reason.

I've wanted to say this for a long time FU idiot

I think augie is spot on!

Really, who would ever read the heavily censored HuffPost or Naked Capitalism?  Ariana and Yves, censor b**chez both, always banish anyone who criticizes them from their sites.

Also, there's no mention of either Mad Magazine or Hustler?

WTF?????

I think Ratigan is learning but part of his education and potentional should be used to bring Schiff on his show and tell him man to man that he was wrong and Schiff saw it all coming years ago.

And really, how could Schiff have been wrong in the first place? It was really simple to see but people wanted to hope and believe. those are the dangers to us now. Hope and belief in a system that looks nothing like a Republic but more like some socialist hegemony that is inraveling before our very eyes.

That combination of news puts me in a situation where I can differentiate between what's actually happening and the blowhard news cycle of fear-monger manipulation and self-indulgent garbage. For instance, you hear a lot of talk on the debt ceiling about how disastrous it's going to be. The nice thing about having access to the financial markets is you can see how full of crap the political media is.

 

But wait, isn't he on MSNBC?

 

One of my great frustrations with working in cable news is that the entire cable news infrastructure has been branded through partisan political lenses and so people assume that if you're on MSNBC you're left and if you're on Fox News you're right. There's no question that I'm painted as left because of the network I'm on. The branding precedes the talent in cable networking.

 

Typical BS. "I'm different. I'm real. ME ME ME"

People are allowed to change points of view.

 

Schiff may ultimately be correct, but got his ass handed to him in 2008 b/c he was short the dollar with no hedge.

That's an irrelevant point. The root of the problem is what Schiff laid out perfectly for years. This buffoon laughed and treated him like a charlatan.

The way to navigate it I never agreed with Schiff on. Deflation was the direction.

Krugman's a real asshole and imbecile of the highest order.

Here's his latest blogshit in the New York Times, where he openly admits he's all for as weak a U.S. Dollar as possible, based on the myth that it will "help" create U.S. jobs (when in reality, the job creation machine in the U.S. is small biz, and a weak dollar hurts their customer base via loss of purchasing power):


Krugman Wants As Weak A U.S. Dollar As Possible: Suck Down That $8 Per Gallon Gas & Economic Depression With A Smile, Americans!

TruthInSunshine completely nails it!!!

Krugman is the typical status quo b**ch who was forever claiming that the best thing for the American economy is to offshore ALL the jobs -- he's been slowly backing away from that lately (similary to Larry Warry Summers' uncle, Samuelson, who began to just before he croaked).

What creates jobs?  Startups!

Who are they?  What American-based multinationals and corporations create overseas, while stealing our money here...

Krugman's bullshit and the fact that noone ever questions his fluff are the main reason I won't subscribe the NYT.
I might add a good newspaper is based on the opinion writers, not on reproducing AP paragraphs.

So contrary to Dylan I reject the content, not the format.

At least he has some taste. If he's reading ZH, he knows that the system is screwed beyond repair and has accepted the new reality of our command and control quasi-capitalist system.

Is this the same obnoxiously cocky, Wall Street carnival barker who, just 2 years ago, was host of a show in which various rat-tailed guests constantly barked over each other with overly feigned enthusiasm, and which encouraged retail investors to flip stocks like hot potatoes in hopes of making "Fast Money" while the entire system was crashing to the ground?

Is this the same guy?

Exactly...someone needs a hug today. Problem with ZH as it grows is that it becomes guilty of the same self aggrandizing that it spits on people for.

5 years from now, ZH will be working hand in glove with Goldman. There is no reason to report or read this. That is what ZH has become though. The truth is a sideshow to popularity

That sir, is because there is no one on earth that reads the Huffington Post unless they hate the United States and everything it stands for.   The Huffington Post is the most egregious of the left wing propaganda---their sole purpose is to spew hate filled propaganda comprised of 90% half-truths and the other 10% outright lies.   While Dylan Ratigan may agree with more moderate peoples view of the corruption in banking and government, the fact is he is a progressive that believes that mainstream America should all be the same.  Notice I said "mainstream" America---which "he" is not a part of.  No, Mr. Ratigan believes in social justice and collectivism for everyone except for him and his elitist media friends.

Bottom line is even though we can all agree that the Federal Reserve and banking system are at the core of our problems, the fact is Ratigan and his socialist/collectivist/progressive friends are largely responsible for the state of our country, as it was their collectivist ideology that drove us in the ditch in the first place.   Socialism, whether for individuals or corporations never turns out well, but that is 100% against what the big government progressives believe at the Huffington Post.  The fact that he even mentioned them as required reading says more about him than anything else that might come out of his progressive, anti-American mouth.

Me neither. HP is garbage.  I saw an interview where she personally said she does not allow any "conspiracy" views in her articles. She said they are not news. So, this means she has no desire for objective thinking on the level it needs to go.. I will not open a single article from that so-called "progressive" production.

I agree with you, however, the Huffington Post spews out conspiracies all the time.  Most of their content are comprised of outright lies or distortions, solely to promote their collectivist / progressive ideology.   Huffington, who really is not even a U.S. citizen, hates the United States Constitution and everything freedom stands for.  Instead, she is an elitist who believes in a social class system that closes the door on progress for anyone but the elites.

Ordinarily I would say that balance is good (I like reading Drudge just to see the conservative brainwash message of the day, such as the idea that global warming can't exist if it's snowing somewhere in the world), but I have to agree Huffington's site is such a piece of garbage that it's not worth reading regardless of one's political point of view.

great for you tyler!  someone in the mainstream media admits to reading a financial anarchist...i read yves as well...

the only thing that i don't understand is why someone like DR doesn't have a quote system running constantly like those of us in the investment world...how can anyone in the biz rely on anything but the fantastic real time feeds of data? 

The problem for dylan is that understanding the raw data flow is far more important than reading about what others are saying who have already seen the data and understand how to discount it
