Gutfeld on New Cohen Allegation: Recurring 'Breaking' Reports on Trump 'Like Fred Sanford's Heart Attack'

Today 06:03 GMT

Greg Gutfeld said some mainstream media reports on "breaking news" stories based on anonymous sources are like how Fred Sanford in "Sanford & Son" would repeatedly worry about having a heart attack. Sanford, played by Redd Foxx, would often exclaim "I'm coming, Elizabeth!" and clutch his heart during the show, predicting he would soon die of a heart attack and join his late wife in heaven.

"It's one of those 'what if' stories," Gutfeld said, adding that the "business model" for much of the mainstream media is like "Fred Sanford from 'Sanford & Son'.". "Every week, he was certain he was going to have a massive heart attack. And then, he'd be there next week, because people would forget about it," Gutfeld said, likening the recurring gag to how often such stories pop up about Trump.

Review: John Lanchester's dystopian novel The Wall ?????

Today 04:13 GMT

In fact, I suspect if John Lanchester were to use his learned, measured, insightful mind to produce a non-fiction book about climate change, it would be a far more distressing peek into the future than his latest novel.

Enter John Lanchester, a first-class essayist and now five-time novelist who has written The Wall, a dystopian tale set in a Britain of the near-ish future. Which makes the subject fertile ground for novelists, whose stock-in-trade it is to let their imaginations run wild and hypothesise.

Saturday 22:44 GMT

Some of the bearish advisers I monitor are worried that it might be, on the grounds that volume is a leading indicator and New York Stock Exchange trading volume has been trending lower.

To be sure, measuring the impact of lower trading volume is anything but straightforward, since trading volume has grown steadily over the years. To overcome that long-term uptrend, I calculated for each month since 1972 a ratio of its NYSE trading volume to the trailing 12-month average.
