Cincinnati media watch

We're keeping an eye on how Cincinnati folks - or the region itself - plays in national political reports.

Some recent highlights:

Cincinnati expert quoted on how presidential election will affect certain stocks in a Feb. 7 sotry on CNNMoney.com

Generally, the issue is "what sectors will see more resources directed at them (which should be good for stocks in that sector), versus less," wrote Michael Ferguson, associate professor of finance at the University of Cincinnati, in an email to CNNMoney.

From looking at their stated views, it would be fair to assume that defense industry stocks would do better under McCain than Obama or Clinton, he wrote, although regardless of who wins, defense spending is likely to stay strong.

Similarly, drug stocks would probably do better under McCain than Obama and Clinton. The same is likely with insurance and health services companies. That's partly because McCain is against federally-mandated universal health coverage and Obama and Clinton are both for it.

From National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation on Feb. 7, hosted by Neal Conan. Among his guests were Emily Bazelon, a senior editor at Slate.com

CONAN: Bye-bye. Here's an e-mail from Davida(ph) in Cincinnati. (Reading) We are a Shriver-Schwarzenegger household - not because of our fabulous looks - we live in Cincinnati, and I was going to propose to my husband having a yard sign for Obama for the primary. The concession on my part is to let him have a McCain yard sign in October and November if Hillary wins the nomination. Since I don't think Hillary can win Ohio in a general election, I thought, I would be in the winning spot in this deal, but after hearing about Hillary has loaned to her campaign, my husband will not accept the offer.

Ms. BAZELON: Oh, no. A deal is scuttled by the news.

Fa-get-bout-it !

Who cares about stocks, the smart folks have been sitting in cash every since the wRong wingnut whacko messed up the economy !

They are now buying the wRong wingnut whacko forclosed homes at pennies on the dollar !

The Dem's have proven themselves on the 'bush-whacko' clean-up !

The Dem's will win in November, short sell your oil stocks, the economy will flurish, our soldiers will come home, the deficit will begin to decrease, the dollar will rise, and EVERY single citizen will do better in the next eight years under Hillary, PERIOD !

Amen, to anon 1:01. The Repugnicants have ruined this country and we will need Democrats (and a paryer) to rescue our country and return it to the rightful owners, the people. The Repugnicants stole 2 elections from us, and that gave them the cover they needed to loot our treasury and our economy from one of the land to the other, all to make them and their cronies rich. The Repugnicants have robbed us blind, destroyed our future, destroyed our education system, ruined our health-care system, wreaked havoc on our retirement savings, and sent millions from tehir homes with their failed emergency policies and millions more with their failed economic policies.

And our corporate media minders at the Enquirer are too stupid to even spell the city's name properly in this headline. When you're that stupid, it's just that much easier to swallow all the crap shoved at you by the Chimpy McBushitler White House.

The only "whackos" are the left wing loons who don't want to defend the country against the Islamo-facists and want Big Brother to solve all their woes. What don't you fools try Cuba or Venezuela and stop trying to turn the USA into a People's Republic

Anon 7:27 is a kool-aid drinking 27-percenter dead-ending Bushie. He's probably hiding under his bed in fear of the 'islamofascists'. What a bed-wetting cowardly lunatic he and his ilk are.
