Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907

Confusion About A Pandemic

First of all there’s a lot of confusion about Coronavirus these days. One thing is for sure. It’s spreading across the world. Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump? Learn more in Will-Coronovirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907.

Economic Fall Out Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump?

Certainly I think we need to talk about the possible economic fall out from Coronovirus. Above all, when it comes to politics, isn’t it all about the economy?

Economy Top Issue

Moreover since the economy is the number one issue in key battleground states, could a Coronavirus pandemic sink Trump?

Half Truths

Especially relevant, half truths about our ‘booming’ economy and the expectations these half truths have created. Even more reports about negative economic effects are spreading faster than Covid-19.

State By State Battlegrounds

Furthermore I’ve been reviewing polls and potential match ups in battle ground states. In addition researching economic and business news with an eye toward the 2020 election.

Republican Fortunes Tied To Economic ‘Boom’

Truth is not only republican fortunes are tied to Trump. The president has attached himself to stock market performance and a ‘booming’ economy.

Health Care Too

Even more Economy and Health Care are consistently top issues. Especially in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsyvania and Florida. Key states in the election this fall. What happens if the virus causes a recession? Learn more in Will-Coronovirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907.

Stock Markets And Economic Indicators Could Sink Trump

In conclusion, the stock market is already in correction. Concerns about the bond market and economic indicators preceded the threat of Coronavirus.

Top Issues

Finally no matter how serious it gets, this will be one of the top issues going forward.

Can We Talk?

Let’s talk about the contours and possible effects on the battleground for election 2020.

Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis Podcast 884

Person Of The Year…A Waste Of Time

I am not often amused by what passes for news these days. Moreover our obsession with year end lists and rankings bores me to tears. On the other hand Time’s ‘Person of The Year’ stunt is always worth a few laughs. Learn more in Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis Podcast 884.

Poster Child Greta

First of all the decision to put Climate Change Poster Child Greta Thunberg on the cover as person of the year for 2020 has upset your crazy Uncle Fred and all his baby boomer conservative friends.

Baby Boomers Love Their FaceBook

Even more no one would have paid any attention until these aging baby boomers took to FB to express their rage. Meanwhile we’re missing key issues that really matter.

Time! Number One! A Hundred Years Ago

Especially relevant is the fact that Time Magazine struggles to remain relevant.

What used to be the number one weekly magazine in the United States about a hundred years ago, is a shadow of a shadow of its former self.

Ask SIRI or Alexa

For example, without asking SIRI or Alexa, can you remember last year’s person of the year?

Crazy Uncle Changes Positions on Climate Change!

What’s more when was the last time anyone convinced anyone to change their position on Climate Change?

United Nations…Hotbed Of Capitalists!

Greta’s most noteworthy rage against the machine of conservative capitalists at the United Nations is pure comedy.

Stunt Culture and Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis

Certainly we’re missing something here. I believe it must be said. Again. We live in a stunt culture. If the current president has proven anything it is drawing attention to yourself is the path to power and profit.

Constant Manipulation

As a result we are submerged in a fish tank of constant manipulation by all kinds of media in this country, feeding on one stunting public personality after another.

Like Moths To A Flame

They can’t help themselves and neither can we.

Taking The Bait Over and Over

Too bad so called conservatives have taken the bait. Again.

Kinda Funny Though

Although I must admit, some of the Greta Memes are pretty funny.

Ebola-Emergency-YouTube-Fearmongering-Bob Davis Podcast 851

Something Terrible Is Going To Happen

These days it’s easy to get attention if you start out with “something terrible is going to happen“. Especially on YouTube. Even more if you’re talking about Ebola. We’ll get to the bottom of the story in Ebola-Emergency-YouTube-Fearmongering-Bob Davis Podcast 851.

YouTube Fearmongering

It’s especially relevant that most 18-49 adults in the United States watch YouTube every day. The video service is the world’s second largest search engine.

News?

Therefore, it’s not a surprise that YouTube is also a primary source for ‘news‘.

Propaganda

I have come to the conclusion most of what we see and hear today as News, is in fact actual propaganda. I couldn’t tell you whether it’s paid for by foreign governments or our own but it sure seems to sow fear and confusion when it comes to potentially serious topics.

End Of The World Predictions and The Deep State

Moreover I’ve done several podcasts over the years about the fearmongers on YouTube. End of The World predictions that never come true. So called experts on UFO’s. Political conspiracies. Fake information. The Deep State. You can find some of those podcasts here.

Enter Ebola

The latest is Ebola.

We’re all going to die of Ebola. At least that’s how the story goes.

Are These Real Investigations?

In Ebola-Emergency-YouTube-Fearmongering-Bob Davis Podcast 851 we’ll take a look at the journalistic requirements for making definitive statements. What’s the difference between a rewrite of an existing story and a real investigation? What about confirmation and multiple sources. These are good tools to have when it comes to evaluating whether you’re being manipulated.

Finally Ebola Is No Joke

There is a pandemic in Southwestern Africa. People want to know. Is it airborne? What about cases in the United States? What about Congolese immigrants detained at the US southern border? Is it an epidemic? What’s the difference? Is this the biggest Ebola pandemic yet?

No Port In The Information Storm

In conclusion with no objective source of information we don’t have a port in the storm. Every now and then I have to hose down the Amatuer content creators. Especially when bad information can be dangerous.
