100% misleading headline: The economist who’s warning of a 40% drop in the stock market this year just took credit for predicting the riots – MarketWatch

That’s bull shit – here is what he wrote in his March column

The inevitable cyber attacks on the US election process may lead to a contested final result, with charges of “rigging” and the possibility of outright violence and civil disorder.

He said there were be riots due to allegations of a rigged election in November.

That has NOTHING to do with riots in May of 2020 but it makes for an emotion inducing headline. MarketWatch does this all the time. Their target audience is elderly retired who necessarily must live off of savings, investments and government assistance programs. They frequently runs stories intended to scare this demographic – its good for click bait ad revenue, apparently.
