“This show is well put together and at first blush seems to provide a nice condensation of financial news.
After listen for a while, however, you start to wonder why they take certain slants which seem to favor one side of some polarized issue. This seems kind of odd when you are expecting a reasonable attempt at factual analysis. You chalk it up to your imagination or perhaps your own bias.
You finally realize there is a definite pattern to their bias. They seem to always favor existing entrenched businesses or policies over anything which may threaten these interests. This is quite disturbing and odd since they “present” themselves as a polished and fact-based program. I have come to see this, however, only as a smokescreen for a deep and frankly disgusting bias which permeates their reporting.
I thought Trump was just being self-serving and disingenuous when he complains about “fake news” from the major outlets. As I am beginning to see, however, there is actually substance to the fact that most news shows serve only their sponsor’s interest and have little regard for honest journalism.
Oh well. This “marketplace” program appears to be just another platform for fake news.”
