to be a contrarian

note who was preponderantly broadcasting the non-analysis that actually presumed to mock peter schiff, who was of course exactly right on every single point.

it's broadly true of network television news of course -- but if you consume fox news in particular for anything except the current barometric reading of american stupidity, you have been duped. the agenda is not information; it is assuaging the american national insecurity complex, which is of course quite profitable.

the deeper lesson, of course, is on the difficulty of being a contrarian -- even when you have the problem and its resolution nailed. standing against the tide is not easy even when, perhaps particularly when it is a tide of belligerent idiocy.
