The Future Of Financial Media?

Tyler Durden's picture


One of the direct consequences of the "end of stocks" meme, and the end of retail's endless honeymoon fascination with equities, because this time may well be different now that central planning is also not only different, but here to stay indefinitely, is the slow burn of all financial media as less and less express an actual interest in anything finance related. Sure enough, as reported several weeks ago, the German edition of the venerable Financial Times is the first to go. Below is the self-explanatory front page of its final edition. Coming soon to most other financial publications near you.

The paradox, of course, is that these very publications defend the same central planning that is making them all obsolete...

Of all the cnbc minions, he is the most obvious with a 100% agenda. "How can I benefitt while the elderly and naive sink into the abyss of their "objective reporting."

Yeah ~ start folding 'em all up... After all ~ in the end it's much better to get all your bullshit news from one source than it is to get bullshit news from many sources... That's part of your 'training'...

Eindlich Schwarz died?

A full bore propaganda mechanism for the NWO (seriously) executed upon a highly professional plane, fraught with lies deceit half truths and downright manipulation of the reader/online comment section.

if you ask me the stupification is almost complete as the disproportionate distribution of reverting to the mean has the necessary NaggerSlaves controled by OZ and the project of bring the new religon of indentured servitude through stolkholm syndrome will be fulfilled folks like Tyler 'SPINLESS' Durden with his heroic acts of expose' behind the curtain of anonimity while he helps direct the bots of the new syndrome

Much easier to "control" and "central plan" via one or two news outlets ---- the criminal central planners reward those who promote their propaganda, starve those who do not.

Joe is one of those people who feels lucky to be allowed to lick the boots of the masters. They keep him fed and wearing shoes ... otherwise he might be living in an alley and dumpster diving.

Don´t think it´s about financial media per se but about print media. Remember that fad "internet"?

Excellent point. Most people fail to realize the internet, in this context, has a historical analogue; the printing press. The internet, like the printing press, drastically reduced the costs of publishing ideas and information ... and society is greatly influenced by ideas.

Couldn't happen soon enough: good riddance to the spinmasters of MSM finance and welcome to the rise of truthy, snarky blogs that get it right by actually digging into the data.

Thanks ZH!

"welcome to the rise of truthy, snarky blogs that get it right by actually digging into the data."

but .. and this is serious .. how do you monetize the snarky blogs?

if ad-supported revenue is the primary monetization vehicle, how will zh attract the advertisers with deep pockets?

hey look: an ad for the dodge ram outdoorsman is on the right-hand side; the ad copy says "take your best ally hunting". 

for the cheney demographic on zh

Have you seen the demographic of the typical ZH reader?  I think they will be fine as long as BS is not called too often.  ZH is selling truth and has my benefit of the doubt right now.  If they decide to sell "benefit of the doubt" out, like stop telling the truth, I will stop reading ZH.  It is pretty simple.  Honest companies will want to reach us.  Chase still runs ads here which I find hilarious and so did Barry.

ZH sells truth?  Really?

i thought it was here to see how to revert to the mean and take advantage of what Jefferson feared in the central planners acquiring everything through inflation then deflation  - truth is for the eye of the beholder -  everyone here wants more than the next guy while doing less.  that is the truth cause if folks wanted the truth they would at least have a 'real' not so pretty face of a puny character who beats up anyone (disney for guys who think they are men?)

This is one of the few places I can see BS called when it is not the truth or just plain propaganda.  Just wondering, you are talking about and not some other ZH.


Any regular ZH reader will start with nothing is perfect and think for yourself.  If you have a better place to keep up on the news, please do tell.  We do actually look at links people provide, read the reports, and call people out when someone has not read the report and decides to make stupid comment.


Last, how many times have you seen this one here: conspiracy theory turned to fact, and it was reported here 2, 3 years ago?
