THERE'S THE BABY!!!
And you can play that game with a child for hours. Babies will appear completely surprised and then eventually become bored. But babies don't seem to figure out that the same face appears from behind a curtain of hands because NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
Can't think of a better metaphor for our Media today.
Thanks Mr. Barone for pointing out how stupid they think we are. Of course, when the MSM is pointing that finger, there's three pointing back.
Barone goes on to quote “How many times in a row can something happen unexpectedly before the experts start to, you know, expect it? At some point, shouldn’t they be required to state the foundation for their expectations?”
“New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly climbed,” reported cnbc.com May 25.
“Personal consumption fell,” Business Insider reported the same day, “when it was expected to rise.”
“Durable goods declined 3.6 percent last month,” Reuters reported May 25, “worse than economists’ expectations.”
“Previously owned home sales unexpectedly fall,” headlined Bloomberg News May 19.
“U.S. home construction fell unexpectedly in April,” wrote the Wall Street Journal May 18.
Which brings us back to the baby. How many times do we have to be lied to for us to finally say, ENOUGH!
How can 80% of an entire industry still act surprised by economic facts established over 100 years ago?
