Alanna Petroff

Move over Sarah Palin. Get out of the way Fox News. The new moron is Alanna Petroff – of CNN Money – who is sounding the alarm. Old people are bad for the economy. Everyone should die young to protect investors. Watch out for the plague of super aged countries. She even has a map showing where these evil countries are and how it’s spreading!



  1. Bill says:

    Actually, that title probably belongs to you (feel free to substitute blogger for reporter), as the article you link to doesn’t say the least bit what you say it does. Way to troll!

    It’s true that as countries have aging populations, there won’t be enough young workers to support them with essential services. Being US-centric, I think of Social Security and Medicare.

    Moron.

      Click on the picture dumbass.

      • LCP says:

        Thankfully, it seems like Alana Petroff is just reporting on an article penned by Elena Duggar and Madhavi Bokil on Moody’s.

        Regarding Alana Petroff as a moron for letting people know what someone else has done/said?

        On any day, that would make Mr. Perkel her accomplice.

        Lest I’m missing something, I fail to feel outrage about that article.

        Last sentence added just to complete descriptive acronym.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      No he got it right. The article doesn’t say what you claim. ‘People should die young’ It’s that not enough young are born.

    • Go F* Yourself! (Your mind is in the gutter already if you didn't say "FUN"!) says:

      Without ANY investigation, (you know, the stuff reporters are PAID to do?) we still don’t know what the numbers of any younger workers are (aka [also known as] “taxpayers”). I suppose someone might like to ask some bureau of bullshit facts somewhere. Perhaps somewhere like the bureau of labor statistics, the internal revenue service, or even a Congressional office, but this idiot (Petroff) didn’t even LOOK!

      The “problem” in this idiot’s (Petroff) story seems to be one of PROPORTION! And proportion is indeed a mathematical concept I mistakenly assumed someone like a PROFESSIONAL MONEY REPORTER (who I also would have assumed took some MATH COURSES somewhere) might already KNOW. But you can be sure, I won’t make that mistake again. At least with CNN I won’t.

      Personally, I want to know who the EDITOR this idiot Petroff works for and why that person allowed Ms. Petroff to even file this load of crap. It’s a real life embodiment story of “the sky is falling” kind of crap since it’s so clearly one sided. Not only should Ms. Petroff be fired for this PROPAGANDA but her editor should be kicked out too.

      (Psssst! It’s called “critical thinking” in case you youngsters aren’t being taught that skill either.)

    Not sure why you are so focused on the messenger when (if you have beef with the thesis of the article) you could have criticized the original report’s authors themselves. All I see in the CNN article is just a summary of the press release that summarizes the full report. I do agree that CNN Money is just…lol financial news analysis from them?

      ^^ I think this. She’s very pretty, after all. She did good research on the issue of aging populations by region — even noting the data was not availible for much of Africa {I can’t see anybody there either}. Others will cite it for whatever.

      Besides, she likes Pork ‘n’ Seaweed donuts.
