I don't know how to post comments to the new site, so I'll post it here.

I'm responding to the comments about Cramer and CNBC.

Check out this site:

"According to Swanson, CNBC is simply an infomercial for WallStreet"

"Nicholas Maier, who worked for former hedge fund manager and now CNBC talk show host James Cramer, alleges that Cramer used CNBC appearances and information provided to him by its reporters to promote stocks that he would sell once they were recommended on TV."

"According to Maier, Wall Street brokerage houses would often tell Cramer of upcoming analyst upgrades and downgrades of stocks before they announced them. Cramer would take a position in the stock and then call CNBC anchors Maria Bartiromo and David Faber and give them the scoop. Once the reporters mentioned the story on television the stock would move and Cramer would immediately dump his position on to the television audience."

Fleecing the lambs..."baaahh!"

"In my view FNN was a tout show for penny stock promoters during those years, just as CNBC is today a tout show for large cap stock promoters (Corporate America), Wall Street and Washington."

"I feel strongly that the show too often looks like an infomercial."

"..if they are not going to be regulated by any authority whatsoever, then they are accountable to no one other than the people in the private boardrooms who are pulling their strings."

It's pretty easy to post comments at the new site - try it.

I won't be monitoring this one any more, and will be removing all the archived Sanity Checks here soon, so please start using the new site.

Regarding the news media... I think that there is an as yet untold story here which relates to the hedge funds manipulation of the markets. If one looks at the breadth of influence of financial news which is held by Dow Jones, it is easy to become alarmed.

Not only does DJ publish The Wallstreet Journal for the U.S. but it also publishes these for Asia and Europe in addition to Barron's. In addition, DJ has the franchise to provide CNBC (owned by GE) with its daily financial news feed. DJ also owns all or part of CNBC MarketWatch and Smart Money. And, allarmingly, it now appears as though the family which owns DJ is attempting to sell it.

If a group of hedge funds were to acquire DJ, they would have virtual control of most of the financial news which drives the market. I think one would have to be naive to think that some of those people who are behind this naked short selling would not find the idea of buying DJ to be really interesting. If anyone has access to a congressman or senator, it might be wise to give them a heads up on this one...
