No More Ricky: Ratings For Woke Golden Globes Crash Spectacularly

by Amanda Prestigiacomo, Daily Wire:

Despite lockdown measures across the country, the ratings for the woke 2021 Golden Globes couldn’t catch a break: the star-studded event saw a viewership crash of a stunning 64%.

“Just 6.9 million people tuned in to the Golden Globes on Sunday, according to Nielsen ratings,” The Associated Press reported Tuesday, noting that the anemic viewership “barely beat the year when a writer’s strike forced NBC to show a news conference announcing the winners.”

Old white male plutocrat: Dems & media have no shame backing Joe Biden, who personifies exactly what they bash Trump for

from RT:

Do the Democratic Party’s leadership and its many allied mainstream media outlets have no shame? They are determined to run Joe Biden, a presidential candidate who embodies many of the evils for which they condemn Donald Trump.
Corporate JoeDemocrats rightly charge the reputed billionaire Donald Trump with serving the wealthy few. Yes, but what about Joe? His corporatist and pro-Wall Street record in Congress included votes to rollback bankruptcy protections for college graduates (1978) and vocational school graduates (1984) with federal student loans.

Retail Traders Are the New Lab Rats in High Frequency Trading Schemes

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

Yesterday, reporters at the Washington Post provided important new information about the insidious machinations of high frequency traders’ efforts to rig U.S. markets in their favor. WaPo reporters Douglas MacMillan and Yeganeh Torbati revealed the following:

“Hedge funds have started to build algorithms or hire outside firms that specialize in scanning conversations on Reddit and Twitter for clues about what retail traders are thinking. Several of these services, with names like Swaggy Stocks, Robintrack and Quiver Quantitative, popped up in the past two years…

“Last year, prominent hedge funds including Point72, D.E. Shaw, Two Sigma and Capital Fund Management were all found to be siphoning trading data from a popular app called Robintrack, which collected information on which stocks users of Robinhood bought and sold. Casey Primozic, the programmer who created the now-defunct app, tweeted his finding in May that he had traced large volumes of traffic back to servers that appeared to belong to those firms.”

1.   Tuesdays are often a weak day for gold.  Where there is weakness there is opportunity, but is that opportunity here today?

2.   Gold is in a trading range between $1670 and $1785, and I believe the odds of an upside breakout are about 67%.

Bill Gates’ Web of Dark Money and Influence – Part 1: Philanthropic Narrative Shaping

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

In the first few months of 2020, business tycoon and billionaire Bill Gates saw his popularity soar through the roof. According to YouGov, 58 percent of Americans polled about Gates had a positive opinion of him, he is equally liked by men and women, and both Boomers and Millennials adore him. Gates’ popularity might have increased due to a viral Netflix documentary about his life being released in late 2019. Combine that positive press with a wave of media interviews seeking the guidance of the man who “predicted” the next major pandemic, and voila – Bill Gates is a superhero here to save the planet from impending doom.

CNN’s Blatant Disinformation About Russia-Ukraine Activity

by Michael Averko, Strategic Culture:

Confrontation with Russia is in line with a sensationalist media, influenced by neocons, neolibs and flat-out Russia-haters.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough’s belittling comments against fair and balanced Russia related journalism relate to an April 12-13 CNN airing on recent matters concerning Russia and Ukraine. The segment at issue begins with CNN reporter Matthew Chance joining Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the frontline of the demarcation area between the forces of the Ukrainian government and Donbass rebels. Thereafter, CNN news anchor John Vause follows up with longtime US academic/mass media journalist Jill Dougherty.
