Daily Beast has been an apologist for Bernanke, always rationalizing his actions. The problem is not the media or how fast information circulates - that's bull. Like I said in the other thread, Bernanke is the drug pusher and the markets are addicted to his crack-snorting poison.

ClickClack:  Do you truly believe that Bernanke is not the main cause of the rollercoaster ride we are on with our economy?  He put us on the ride and he really doesn't know how to get us off without crashing!  Evidently you are not in stocks or I don't see how you can be so defensive of Bernanke.  The stock market is going to overreact to whatever Bernanke does no matter how "we" feel about him.  I'm just grateful I am not in the market but I have friends who are and this is not a pleasant time for them.
