Cable News Snapshot: 4:00pmET Today

By Chris Ariens 

On the one year anniversary of the Dow Industrial Average’s record high close, the average lost another 678 points today, dropping below 9000 (and then some) for the fist time in five years. Fox News and MSNBC have been covering the latest market crash throughout the 4pmET hour, CNN has been reporting market news as well as campaign news this hour.

So, we’re guessing Happy Hour is shelved again today. > Update: It is.
