Mistrust or No trust of the Media is at all time high in USA...
Especially ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, New York Times and other liberal rags...
This appears to be a growing trend with loss of credibility for all of them...

Who knew after all these years Joe Dumars was really playing a dual role as both himself and his alter-ego Ken Holland.

Your tax money at work under the current administration...
Do we need 4 more years of this???
How many millions went to the executives for bonuses and golden parachutes...
Please spin this so that it makes sense...

Is Bernanke responsible if your income doesn't keep up with inflation? Why?

Well...The "Mainstream" Media can no longer ignore the Benghazi Coverup...
Obama continues to duck all questions at his own peril...
Appears to be trying to get past election day before it all hits the fan...
CBS and ABC are now taking some action on this...
It appears that it is all going to break wide-open before election day...

Along that same vein, Decatur Utilities: Nonunion AL crews turned away from Sandy - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL
Non union utility crews from out of state turned away from New Jersey, evidently by the local utility. I guess New Yorkers will be glad to have the help, but this sure doesn't put the unions in a good light.
Edit: Or maybe not ...

Heard from my friend up on the shore today. His power is still out, the street and yard piled with sand and debris. Supposed to get really cold this weekend, but he says he's stocked with Maker's Mark and wood for the fireplace so is staying put.

Now post a CPI chart with all that same data in it, and much more.

From the BLS - pick and choose what you want prices on.
Consumer Price Index-Average Price Data
Select what you want and it will give you prices for the last 10 years. Tell me which one went down.
Don't forget, prices may stay the same, but the content is less (20oz instead of 24oz as an example)
I will admit we do not have "out of control" inflation right now (depends on how you define out of control I guess), but anyone who claims we are not experiencing rising prices due to inflation (at some rate) isn't seeing the numbers for what they are.
As I demonstrated above, a 2% inflation rate as targeted by Bernanke will cause higher prices (less purchasing power) over periods of time. Why would anyone be good with that? It's stealing.
On the flip side of that coin, what do you get for putting your hard earned money into a bank account and earning interest? Next to nothing, if anything (In my bank shopping recently I had to tell myself not to laugh when I asked what the interest yield on a savings/checking account).
Horrible monetary policy. Punish the savers, no capital accumulation, no investment. Bernanke is a colossal failure - unless of course you are a Wall Street bank.The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it - John Kenneth Galbraith

MSNBC more partisan than Fox News?
Portion of the article:
But here's one of several fascinating smaller findings of the study that are kind of stunning -- even if they seem obvious and ho-hum to some of my more jaded, postmodern, aren't-we-cleverly-ironic colleagues:
ON MSNBC, the ratio of negative to positive stories on GOP candidate Mitt Romney was 71 to 3.
That's not a news channel. That's a propaganda machine, and owner Comcast should probably change Phil Griffin's title from president to high minister of information, or something equally befitting the work of a party propaganist hack in a totalitarian regime. You wonder how mainstream news organizations allow their reporters and corrdespondents to appear in such a cauldron of bias.
I thought show host Sean Hannity of Fox News defined party propagandist. But while his channel was bad, it wasn't as bad-boy biased as MSNBC.
The ratio of negative to positive stories in Fox's coverage of President Obama was 46 to 6.
Pew Study the above numbers come from
