Ok, I must be the only dumb one here.

Is there something wrong with the Y-axis?

As I read that graph, the Y axis goes from 15,000 DOWN TO 1,000.

Obviously, it looks logarithmic, but again the numerals make it look as though Zero Hedge has LOST viewers and has FALLEN to levels... not risen.

Forgive me if I've misinterpreted, which I clearly must have.

And here is the problem with media today.

Is CNBC a TV channel for information?  Or entertainment?

There appears to be a problem identifying such by the producers of that channel.  Cramer, case in point.  The guy is always wrong financially but entertaining to watch.  No one would act like him, so they keep him because of how he acts, not for what he legitimately has to say.

We've got comedy, pretty girls, "experts", and thusly, an American news channel.

No doubt ratings will continue to fall.  People are searching out the truth and when comedy and the economy are mixed together in one outlet, people tune out.  The continued loss of wealth and earning power is no longer funny.

Congrats Tyler(s).

"We've got comedy, pretty girls, "experts", and thusly, an American news channel."

Now that Erin Burnett has left I would also put a quotation around "pretty girls" as well.  Becky Quick and that walking nose with DD's do not qualify as pretty in my book.  Although... that sock puppet Andrew Ross Sorkin is a rather pretty girl...

So if ZH already has Comedy, and hundreds of "experts" commenting each day, all we need is pretty girls and ZH can put CNBC out of bidness!!!

For those that haven't read this article related to Morgan Stanley and Zero Hedge...

It's like they're trying to discredit the information provided... but really don't refute much.

According to the talking points, reviewed by The New York Times, the numbers cited by Zero Hedge “represent gross asset positions and thus do not reflect the benefit of collateral or other hedges and protection, and the more relevant exposure to consider is the net exposure.”

So what is its net exposure? The company was limited in what it could say because of the pending earnings announcement. To address this point, staff members were told to direct callers to pre-existing stock research. “Analysts estimate that the actual net exposure is meaningfully lower,” the talking points read.

WOW - lame response - "meaningfully lower". Thanks for the facts...

Is CNBC a TV channel for information?  Or entertainment?

It is a giant propaganda campaign.  I saw on CNBC the other day the following quote.

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."  -Thomas Jefferson

I would like to make a few comments regarding this quote.  One I do not believe this is a true Jefferson quote.  If it is true, I would love for someone to show me proof.  The word deflation did not even exist in Thoms Jefferson's era.  And two, why would CNBC be running quotes that are not true quotes which attack the financial system they have clearly pandered to for all this time?  Unless, the whole economy crashing scenario is something the NWO planners have in the cards.  That would also explain rising stock of zero hedge.  Where were you ten years ago Tyler?  Now it is to late.  Think about it all of you researchers, big brother Google owns Youtube, they would harshly censor the content if they didn't want it out there.  The bottom line is, when they bring in the police state they need people to arrest and we're it.

Regardless of my agreement regarding the fundamental bias of MSM, and CNBC in particular regarding financial/banking issues, the following points to your question/assertion should help.

1) deflation, was a farming term back in TJ's time;

2) the TJ quote, evidently has variations which have not been resolved;

I find the agricultural expression of deflation, link above, to be a far better description of the evil than the current dismal science portrayal of the machinations of the banksters in the Fed.

Wed, 10/05/2011 - 10:50 | 1741308 Teddy Turner
Teddy Turner's picture

I appreciate the reply but please correct me if I am wrong.  I see according to your sources, the term deflation was first used starting in 1891.  And that the TJ quote has been drastically changed.

Wed, 10/05/2011 - 13:18 | 1741961 wisefool
wisefool's picture

Agreed on the deflation entomology arbitrage. To further that point, one of the things the three keyensian stooges (the fed, the banks, and the government) did was blow up a housing bubble that destroyed vast tracts of not just contigous land, but all those overbuilt "shelter roofs" destroy watersheds. Engineers and (the purportedly evil) Big Agra can make better and better tech to lessen the mechanical impact on the soils. But once McMansion run off changes the hydrology of the soil horizons there is no way to get that back. The local governments will never accept the loss in property tax revenues. Empty houses still pay taxes.

I think Krugman should read a little more FDR and a little less keynes. Some bubbles should never be made.

The Nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself

Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Now we all need to get back to watching Desprate Dancing with the Jersey Shore film production tax credit stars! Krugman will self correct.

Interesting post but I do not believe the fake Thomas Jefferson quote was refering to deflation in an agricultural sense because he also refers to inflation, another monetary term which had not been invented yet.

wisefool's picture

Sure. I am not a historian. I was just adding context that folks like TJ and FDR might have developed, even with improper citation.

In other words TJ might not have said it, but it does sound like something he would say. Thats all I added, even if off point. Good luck on the research.

Very definitely not a statement by Thomas Jefferson.

From the Wikiquote site:

The earliest known appearance of this quote is from 1935 (Testimony of Charles C. Mayer, Hearings Before the Committee on Banking and Currency, House of Representatives, Seventy-fourth Congress, First Session, on H.R. 5357, p. 799)

CNBC viewers are going broke (from listening to the corporate propoganda) and can no longer afford cable or internet access. Thus the drop in rating on CNBC website. Its a Cause and Effect thing.

And he uses a monkey hammer on all the little stocks that pop their heads up...Apple is a smashable apple (or maybe one of those phones gets smashed), HP a mini printer pops up, and gets smashed. Then gold pops up, it gets bopped, but nothing happens, it just pops back up!

Everyone watches Cramer! We love him! Priceless entertainment.

I followed his advice in '08 and he was right on the $$ but unfortunately, the other side of the trade, everyone is entitled to make mistakes.

Hope he re-names it "Sad Money" And shows people how to make "Glad Money". I do have faith in Free Capitol, but it can not be acheived in a corrupt HFT enviroment.

Congrats Tylers, you deserve it!

Blast from the past from those fertile (from all the dung deposits) fields of (hey, you'd only had lost something like 94% of your money dippin' with Cramer on these gems):


The Winners of the New World - TheStreet

  By Jim Cramer 02/29/00 - 09:42 AM EST

You want winners? You want me to put my Cramer Berkowitz hedge fund hat on and just discuss what my fund is buying today to try to make money tomorrow and the next day and the next? You want my top 10 stocks for who is going to make it in the New World? You know what? I am going to give them to you. Right here. Right now. OK. Here goes. Write them down -- no handouts here!:


724 Solutions (SVNX), Ariba (ARBA_), Digital Island (ISLD), Exodus (EXDS), (INSP_), Inktomi (INKT), Mercury Interactive (MERQ), Sonera (SNRA), VeriSign (VRSN_) and Veritas Software (VRTS_).


We are buying some of every one of these this morning as I give this speech. We buy them every day, particularly if they are down, which, no surprise given what they do, is very rare. And we will keep doing so until this period is over -- and it is very far from ending. Heck, people are just learning these stories on Wall Street, and the more they come to learn, the more they love and own! Most of these companies don't even have earnings per share, so we won't have to be constrained by that methodology for quarters to come.

"Most of these companies don't even have earnings per share, so we won't have to be constrained by that methodology for quarters to come."


A blast from the past indeed, TIS. And there's a fabulous example of dot-com bubble rationalization, right there.

Another thing: I've noticed before Cramer's contempt for the English language. There's an example here. "Methodology", if it means anything at all -- which I would dispute -- must mean "the study of methods".

He means "method" (which itself is not the right word here) but I suppose he thinks that "methodology" makes him sound more intelligent. As so often with Mr Cramer, the exact opposite is true.

if they cant even think outside of that box (or can but offer lies of omission instead) then caution is warranted.

Caution is always warranted, here, anywhere. DOD. I trust ZH more than others, but they are human. The thing is that here, because almost everything goes (dumb assed racist shit, people discussing their plans for killing people, ANYTHING) the Tylers get uncensored feedback. It keeps them honest and they do respond to it. It works, for now, today. Anyone can have a weak moment and sell out at any time. Never relax, never give up, never give in.

Zero Hedge, whoooaugh!

Whoever you people are I can't thank the Zerohedge team enough. You've opened my eyes and for the last three years have been my favorite most visited website. In fact, this is my all time favorite place. It's help me develop a whole new understanding of capital markets and how they really function. As time wore on I stopped visting main stream media sites all together. They are utterly worthless. I don't know what I would do without this place.

ZH is the one website I check first thing in the morning, at lunch, and just before I go to bed.  Hands down the BEST source of real financial & economic news in the WORLD.  I've also made a modest amount of money from it's free advice, far more than I could have at some of the MSM finance sites. Thank you to the Tylers @ ZH -- keep up the amazing work and unrelenting attacks to expose what's really happening in our world, and why it is happening.  Next up,!
