Stock Market Watch


STOCK MARKET WATCH….From the AP today:

Stocks sank in light trading Monday as worries about American International Group Inc. touched off broader concerns that the deterioration of the credit markets will bring more big losses for financial companies.

Damn liberal media. Everyone knows the market is down because the start of the Democratic convention has Wall Street worried that Barack Obama might become president next year and wreck the economy. Don’t these guys ever stop shilling for their liberal darlings?

UPDATE: With my hand over my heart, I swear I wrote this post before surfing over to The Corner to see what professional nutbag Larry Kudlow had to say about today’s market swoon. Sure enough, he came through for me.

MORE HARD-HITTING JOURNALISM

In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones, a special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
