How Journalism Integrity Deficits Contribute to Economic Confusion

by Dr. David Gruder

I strongly recommend that you watch a video from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that blasts CNBC for completely and irresponsibly blurring the lines between reporting and punditry. Be prepared to have your mind blown over how many extremely important pronouncements CNBC, one of the most looked-to stations for coverage of financial news, has been frighteningly wrong with. This remarkably educational satire speaks for itself without any further commentary from me, but watch all the way through to the end of this 8 minute video to get its full impact.
