In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

yeah, i've been watching way too much CNN lately and the garbage on the news channels is astounding. They repeat themselves over and over again until there's nothing left.

On an unrelated note, the Associated Press twitter was hacked today and someone posted "Breaking: White House bombed, President Obama injured." Scared the shit out of me but the next second the account was made private to et rid of the hacker I guess.



part of me doesn't hate CNN and the other part of me despises it. When something like the Boston bombing happens, good luck getting ANY other news info for at least 3-4 weeks. All the info you've already heard on 20 minute repeat with the occasional update that shouldn't even be called an update.

Only thing I like about CNN anymore is Don Lemon

Meh...The Dow still closed over a percentage point up so it really wasn't hurt.

Indeed it did.

Wonder how much money the hacker made on that. Couple million?


Doubt any at all, if you're trying to make any sort of money off something like that you better be in a position to short sell and even then it's tough to know what would drop from news like that and what wouldn't. Like Bret said the market corrected itself really quickly so even if he did short sell anything he better have been quick to unload his short sales.

I'm sure some insider made a killing off of it, what with all the greed and corruption and... what's the fucking point.
