CNN recently aired the political views of a movie producer who spent the hour cursing the "evil" oil companies and their stockholders, accusing both of making huge profits on the backs of fellow Americans. In reality, every working stiff possessing a 401(k) plan probably owns oil stocks and is aware that those stocks have diminished in value 10 to 20 percent over the past year. As for the oil companies, they did make what seems to be a great deal of money, but at only a 6 to 8 percent profit margin. That is efficient production.

Perhaps CNN should follow the example of MSNBC by ridding itself of hosts who don't understand why Marxism continues to fail.
