what does it mean to "do a massive ""short sale""? what would be the purpose after telling everyone that stocks are going to go much higher?

Update:

I AM JUST ASKING WHAT THIS JARGON MEANS. ALSO, WHY TRADERS ALWAYS USE THIS STUPID JARGON? WHY NOT BE MORE SPECIFIC?

    It means to place a bet on the market falling and profiting if it does.  The purpose of telling everyone else the market will go higher is to encourage buying so that you can sell at the best price

    Your question is too generic to answer. Who is saying this and what stock are they talking about?
