Scrambling For An Explanation

So, there really are occasions when politicians give credit to the media.

North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sold shares of stock worth $1.7 million after receiving several briefings about the spread of the coronavirus. His explanation for the sale, which may have saved him $250,000 in paper loses, was that he relied on “public news reports to guide my decisions …”

Reminds me of when First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Clinton turned $1,000 into $100,000 by trading in cattle futures in 1978 and 1979 and credited reading the Wall Street Journal for achieving such miraculous success.

Who knew the media were so prescient?
