I can't watch CNN. They have become openly partisan. They're "right" in that Trump is horrible, but that doesn't mean I want to watch sneering coverage that openly mocks Republicans and taunts the President at every opportunity. I want honest coverage that calls him on his BS while not openly cheerleading for any particular political party. This is extremely hard to find right now.
As for the stock market drop, I wrote this on Facebook:
The stock market took a big drop this week, dropping over 1500 points in one day.
Some folks are blaming the President, and/or taunting him because he previously has crowed about how high the stock market has been. I don't think the President is to blame for this. It sounds like it's more related to possible interest rate changes by the Federal Reserve.
I just wanted to say, I think it's silly that we say the economy is strong when the stock market goes up, and that the economy is weak when the stock market goes down. The stock market isn't the economy. It's just gambling for grown-ups. The market is mostly run by high-frequency trading bots and billionaires. It doesn't reflect the reality of most people or even most businesses. I just don't think it is a very important indicator of anything about the country or economy as a whole. And I don't think it is the President's doing when the stock market goes up or down.
