Stocks slump on record oil prices
Stocks slump on record oil prices !!! OH NO!!!
Look at this from CNN! It looks like the market is going to crash ...
Oh man that looks horrible!
Oh wait ... what's that?
-21 points? Huh? That's nothing, the market daily goes up (or down) 40-100 points, and a 21 point fall is big news?
The truth is the floor of wall street always looks that crazy. But why choose that picture and try to make it seem important? Notice the bullet points below the picture ... this headline and picture are designed to diffuse Bush's Energy Bill and make news out of nothing. Ugh.
