Last time bitcoin jumped from 2 to 30 dollars and the news story was on some random website. Now this might even hit the news.

Silk road is a tor website so it's nearly impossible to take down and even if it happens, like the news story says someone will just open it again.

bitcoin != silk road

silk road does not directly effect the bitcoin economy.

Sure. Anything can affect the market price, but thats exactly the point. They don't control the market and the price, just affected by it
