“Stocks closed down sharply Wednesday on fears that the worsening pandemic will continue to drag down the economy,” said the left-of-center Boston Globe after the market close today.
Indeed, sources across the left-right media divide indicated that a driver for the market dive has been not only increased cases in the U.S., but also in Europe and around the world.
“The Dow slipped over 940 points, about a 3.43 percent loss,” said the Boston Globe.
That noted, the recent report below is as relevant as before. “Flatten the Fear” has to be part of an investor’s, professional’s, or general publics’ mantra.
Members of the First family, others in the Trump White House, members of the Biden and Harris campaign teams have contracted COVID19. So far, all survived or have reportedly recovered. The latest data indicates that as much as 99.75 percent of those who contract the virus live.
Put differently, there is questionable reasoning by those who sold off stocks, given that they are supposed to be professionals that are data driven.
Given Wall Street’s bias toward the Biden-Harris ticket, is there anything more to know?
What is certain is that big tech, big media, Hollywood, and Wall Street are overwhelmingly backing Democrats, including the Biden-Harris ticket. Who says? The data from George Soros funded Open Secrets, which will be our featured focus this evening.
Right-of-center Breitbart today reported that Insider’s analysis of Federal Election Commission campaign donation data reveals that the vast majority of donations by those in media have gone to Democrats.
According to the Insider’s analysis, donors include staffers at the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and Houston Chronicle. They are “among dozens of reporters, editors, and other newspeople who’ve given tens of thousands of dollars to political candidates and causes.”
Three of the journalists at the Marshall Project, a “nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization,” contributed to far-left Democrats this cycle, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), as well as “a political committee led by Democratic Party luminary Stacey Abrams.”
Marshall Project’s founder and board chairman, Neil Barsky personally donated tens of thousands to Democrats, including Joe Biden. “For the sake of our democracy and the health of our planet, I sincerely hope Trump loses on November 3, and I plan to continue to do everything in my power as a private citizen to help make that happen,” Barsky said. So much for ‘nonpartisanship?’
Others named included New York Magazine, ProPublica, Mother Jones, McClatchy, Bloomberg, the Intercept, the New Yorker, the Washington Times, the Hill, and the Los Angeles Times.
For those who have questioned the reality of media tilt, those facts should be revealing.
That makes a useful segue to the leftist billionaire George Soros funded Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) data that reports record spending for this election cycle.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet
The George Soros funded Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) said that the 2020 election is estimated to finish with nearly $14 billion in campaign spending.
The CRP’s previous estimate for all 2020 spending was $10.8 billion. That estimated final spending total is between both the presidential and congressional campaigns.
By Election Day, November 3, 2020, the presidential race is expected to end up seeing $6.6 billion in total spending, while congressional races are anticipated to finish with just over $7 billion.
CRP data says that Democrats have nearly doubled the spending by Republican candidates up and down the ballot. Democratic contenders are going into the final week of the election spending $6.9 billion while Republicans have had $3.8 billion.
Former Obama-era VP Biden is on track to be the first candidate in U.S. history to end up raising $1 billion in a single election cycle, CRP said. Fundraising by the DNC or RNC would be in addition to presidential campaign fundraising.
Their data shows that employees in certain industries, including those on Wall Street, have largely flipped to Democrats.
These are an additional data point that demonstrates that billionaires in 2018 and now in 2020 are supporting Democrats over Republicans or President Trump.
