The day after the nearly 600-point stock market slide.
Listening to National Public Radio this morning on the way in to work.
Not a single, solitary mention of Hillary Clinton’s travails as a result of being caught making top secret information available to enemy governments via her illegal personal e-mail server.
Again, that dancing and celebrating you’re hearing is the Clinton campaign overjoyed at the fact that every-day Americans lost two trillion dollars in wealth yesterday in the Stock Market.
Because, you see, that bumped Clinton, and her illegal e-mail server(s), right the heck out of the news.
The way the media work: when a story gets bumped like that, they rarely go back to it. Even if it’s a long-running story like the Clinton corruption story. You may hear snippets, bits and bites here and there, but absent new and shocking developments (don’t rule that out!), it never regains the prominence it once had.
However, now there’s FOX. Clinton corruption is important — wildly important — she wants to be the next President. So FOX just may pick it back up. If, that is, the stock markets calm down a bit. A big “if.”(1)
Interesting sidenote: Everyone says that ratings are all-important for the media. However, FOX has kept its ratings sky-high despite frequently covering stories for their real value, not their ratings value.
(1) – Hint: They won’t. The stock markets won’t calm down anytime soon, that is.
