During a discussion of how the recent attack on the U.S. Embassy in Syria will affect the stock market, on the September 12 edition of Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox News senior business correspondent Brenda Buttner asserted that "Wall Street is very insular" and "the market's going to go down" if a terror attack occurs in the United States. Buttner then claimed: "Thank God and thank President Bush it hasn't happened here yet," adding that "they've [terrorists] been trying and President Bush has been trying to stop them despite the opposition of some very misled people." Fox News touts Your World as "the No.1 business news show on cable."

From the September 12 edition of Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto:

NEIL CAVUTO (host): Brenda?

BUTTNER: These despicable militants are trying to hit us over there. They're trying to do it over here. They just haven't been -- been successful today. Just as [Fortune magazine senior writer] Adam [Lashinsky] said, they will try to do it again tomorrow; and Wall Street is very insular -- they don't see anything except what's right in front of their face. And if it happens here, the market's going to go down. Thank God and thank President Bush it hasn't happened here yet. But they've been trying and President Bush has been trying to stop them despite the opposition of some very misled people.
