On the morning of the 2016 election, Morning Joe’s “economic analyst” told the wanting ears of the hosts and audience, “if the likely event happens and Trump wins you will see a market crash of historic proportions, I think.”
That obviously didn’t happen, it didn’t come close to happening, but you’ll never go broke telling your audience what they want to hear. All you have to keep doing is changing the timeframe. “Sure, the economy hasn’t collapsed YET, but all indications are it soon could.” A few well-placed qualifiers to hedge your bets along with an infinite timeline (kind of like the climate change crowd) and your contract is renewed! You don’t have to be right, you just have to be useful.
And the left is lousy with useful idiots in the media. The Democratic Party is now the media’s farm team, so any Wally Pipps not sufficiently toeing the line has a string of Lou Gehrigs willing to take their place.
That will be 2020 – one hysterical outrage after another, one lie after another. The only thing crazier than a liberal with power is a liberal out of power trying to obtain it.
