NY Auto Show: It's Not The Economy Stupid!

I don’t want to say that Chrysler LLC vice chairman sounds like Fox News Circus Clown in Residence. I have a lot of respect for Jim. But when asked about the economy and market volatility and plummeting consumer confidence, Jim suggested that the best thing folks could do is “stop reading the newspapers.”

Just as Circus Clown Hannity (CCH) often repeats that Michigan is a one-state Recession with a straight face, Press thinks the overall economy is “very sound.” It’s the news stories about the lousy economy that is feeding paranoia and unrest.

Hmmm. What came first…..the lousy economic indicators or the news stories that covered them?

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
