Why Do People Still Listen to Broken Clock Charlatans After Years of Being Wrong? Mike Stathis Uncovers this Mystery

Why doesn't the media simply provide valuable insight?

Wouldn't that be a more effective and more profiable way to boost viewership and thus ad revenues? 

Have you ever wondered why, after years of being wrong on just about everything, some people still think clowns like Peter Schiff, Harry Dent, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Jim Rickards and the rest of the broken clock doomsday clan positioned by the media as legitimate sources of economic and investment insight?

Over the years I have sought to document the horrendous track records of the most commonly promoted clowns in the financial media in order to warn investors that the financial media cannot be trusted and has been specifically designed to mislead its audience.

I have dedicated an enormous amount of time and effort exposing this media scam in order to help investors understand how they are being misled, lied to and ripped off. As a matter of fact, I have no doubt that I am the world's leading expert exposing these financial charlatans and the financial media scam. 

If you want evidence that I am the leading source in the world exposing media charlatans, simply enter the names of these clowns into our search box (located to the upper right-hand side of the page) and you will get a rough estimate of the number of articles and videos I have published.
