    I was just watching Wolf Blitzer on CNN when he said that the 300 riches people in the world had increase their wealth by total of $524 trillion last year. I was thinking too myself that was way off and will realize it and correct himself any moment. The thing is that he double down and he said "That is correct not millions not billions but trillions". Now if I am wrong and the numbers he gave where true I will apologize.

    He probably got confused because the headlines have read Half Trillion.

    He missed the decimal point to the left of the "5".

    I can zip through Wolfs conglomeration of junk journalism and talking heads in about 5 minutes most days, the only reason I watch it at all is because it is a bit less offensive than Foxes lying diatribes. ron

    Billions, Trillions

    Pretty soon you're talking real money...

    Wolf Blitzer is one reason I don't watch CNN nearly as much as I used to.
