MarketWatch Goes Full Propaganda Retard

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Earlier we noted that the record lottery jackpot is nothing but a gimmick to get "the poor" to part with what little wealth they have. As it turns out, we should have also added "the stupid", something which MarketWatch has, however, figured out, and in a blatant attempt to ride on the Mega Millions histeria, and to get the the full blown stock market ponzi up and running, the WSJ sister publication is now petitioning everyone to please understand that playing the lottery and participating in a broken, fraudulent and corrupt stock market, are both one and the same: "You have to play to win." We must thank MarketWatch for implicitly pointing out that winning in the centrally planned stock ponzi scheme, in which every trade is frontrun by either a major bank or a millisecond algo, has the same 1 in 100,000,000+ odds as winning the lottery, roughly the same as coming out of Bernie Madoff Asset Management with all your cash intact.

From the MW front page.

 

And if anyone is wondering why the propaganda has gone full retard, the reason is simple. Recall that 10 days ago we said:

In the latest week, ICI just reported that domestic equity retail funds just saw another $2.9 billion outflow, the 4th consecutive in a row, and the 23 of out 27 outflows during the entire parabolic blow off top phase the market has undergone since October, and instead put another $9 billion in fixed income funds "soaring" yields be damned. What does this mean? Probably that the stock ramp is about to get uber-parabolic for the simple reason that this is the only thing left in the status quo's arsenal - to keep doing the same old same old, hoping for a different outcome, because this time it's different. Only this time the dumb money either doesn't have the cash to burn, or just doesn't want to participate in a rigged, corrupt, centrally-planned market.

Yup - the banks are so loaded up with toxic stocks that they have NO CHOICE but to keep the ramp accelerating higher and higher until "stupid" retail comes back in and distribution happens, leaving the retail investor holding the hollow bag again. Alas, there were no inflows this week either. Which means that just like Italian banks, the meltup could well accelerate even more from here.

Sadly, retail just doesn't care any more. And once the Primary Dealers and hedge funds realize they have all gone Wile Coyote over the cliff well... gravity ensues.

I still have an account on Market Wash since 2007. I could write a book on all the shit that went behind the scenes. Back in the day, I was a wrath of hell in connecting our end game. Yet, MW never deleted my account. Why? Because MW was able to see me assist on clamping down on insider trading rings. How did Market Wash know? They read my private emails sent from officials asking me questions.  Shortly after, the site became a parlor pinko-- <delete all member accounts>. I lost a large percentage of inner circle MW friends. 

In search of another financial site, I stumbled across Zerohedge [old blog] website. Life brings many treasures, without MW actions.. I would still be stagnated on an illusion that I knew didn’t exist. 

Keep up the good work ZH members!

Careless whisper?

Was George Michael talking about the cash equities market and the retail investor?

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen and all its sad goodbyes

Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth, pain is that all you'll find

I should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay

Every single mainstream media outlet cheeleads and carries the water for the equity markets. Each of these outlets wants stocks to rise, no matter their "political" leanings.

Because - in the end, whether they are "Republican" or "Democrat" - all of these media outlets share one common thread:

They are businesses, and rising equity prices are good for business.

The corporate state marches on, all the while successfully convincing Idiot Amerikkkans that what we have under Obama and Chairman Ben is "socialism" or "communism".

Anywhere you look it's lottery mania, "Record jackpot", "half a billion dollars". Right now there are tens of millions of people in America suffering under the burden of poverty thrown on them by a system of quasi capitalism (some would say croni) that only benefits the sludge that's risen to the surface.

There's no bailout for Average Joe, lowering his head and swiping a SNAP card. 

Yet here is the news, promising them riches if only they buy a couple tickets for the chance.

"sumner redstone"

 

It was always tough, but today we are in the throes of something we have never seen in our history. It's clear in recent times the market is looking for a bottom. - Sumner Redstone

 

And Sumner's the 'top'

I must respectfully disagree with the many that see the markets as a better place to make money, verses the lotto.....     I feel that the lotto probably has better odds than the general stock/bond markets.... and the downside risks are no more than the price of a ticket verses a huge portfolio balance......    I thru in my 10 bucks to the local pool yesterday just in case we have a winning ticket, oh yawn .....

Listen up people! 

The banks have used all their capital in a low volume melt up, desperately trying to get you onboard. They have received help from Ben and others by destroying the bond market. They have successfully managed the precious metal markets. Thus, you have no other options, but to buy stocks. We are waiting for your greed to overwhelm your caution. We have the media on a full court press.

Unfortunately, before we sell the top and call in capital to crash the market, so we can transfer all your wealth, we need your participation. Otherwise, we have to continue to print, so we can maintain the status quo, but we are losing patience. Don't make us start a global war!!!

Think about guys, with the payout now over 600 millon you could buy all the possible number combinations ~325 million and still make money when you won.  It takes money to make money after all.

...unless the guy in Centerville trailer park and the family living in their car in Scottsdale each come up with the winning number as well.

It takes money to make money after all.

How true that is. Besides, if you spent 325 million on lottery tickets and still lost money because you had to split the winnings, Timmah Jeethner and the Bernank would arrange a bailout for you.

Huh, seems I got this right over 2 years ago, theyll hold the biggest rally ever to get retail back in, and it will NEVER happen, because retail is dead broke!

Go ahead, pump it to 15,000, see if retail pays more than they wont pay now, IDIOTS!

Great post. Really sums it up nicely.

They're giving investors the option to play it all on double zero for a shot 1 in 38 shot of not retiring in poverty. And you just know the one who wins will be publicized and championed in every possible way, as if to say, "see he did it, you can too".

It’s kind of like giving a woman the option of getting raped or beaten.

And when nobody falls for this obvious brutality there’s always the high ground approach; “the lottery pays for education, it’s good for the children”.

"Mother-Watch" has turned into an INSANE asylum of Trolls, Klones and Liberal "Blame Monsters" that nearly 50 of us have left and started our own PRIVATE BLOG, "Marketwatchsux" at WordPress.

 

The writers (certainly NOT Journalists) are doing anything possible to carry the Obama Administratrions water at ALL COSTS.  The TRUTH be DAMNED.

 

Darrell Delamaide, Thomas "The World's Eco problems are America's Guilt Trip" Kostigen, Senior Editor David "I'll morph a parking ticket into a gun control argument" Callaway and others have reduced the credibility of Marketwatch by a geometric progression.

 

At least Rex Nutting makes a legitimate argument to support his Leftist positions.

 

They have "auto-refresh pages" (increasing their web traffic for advertisers) and are desperate to glean anything they can. Take an UNSUPPORTABLE position just to rile people into respondng, and, VIOLA !!.  WEB traffic.  MW is now in the class of any leftist BLOG, aka, "The Jokington Post".

 

The Site is constantly under "suppression" and censorship for simple, innane, innocuous comments, asking someone (i.e;  a Monnbat poster) to SUPPORT their POSITION with FACTS.  Oooops.  Sorry.  Deleted comments, deleted accounts.

 

Marketwatch SUCKS.

Well they got me pumped to buy 3 tickets.  What would I do with the Money?  Well, I guess I would pay off everyone in the immediate familys debt.  Set up Money for Grandchildrens education.  After that I do not think I would change my lifestyle that much.  I might consider opening a Homeless Shelter with the remaining Money.    Would also love to buy a Farm and take in Shelter Animals so they would not be killed. Caring for the Animals would keep me happy for the rest of my days.
