Why is the media coverage of economy consistently negative?


After 9/11, the stock market plummeted. However, a less known reality is that 59 days later, on 11/9, the stock market had returned to its pre-9/11 status. Why was that not heralded? Why is the media consistently negative about the US economy, when dips and highs are part of a healthy, growing economy?

    Unfortunately everyone does not want the same detail as you and would rather hear about other subjects. I know as an old reporter, I wrote budget stories about how taxpayer money was being spent and most people were interested in paving streets.

    I don't have to ask any questions. I was curious what others think. I talk to some people and they seem to believe everything the media sells -

    I'd rather read, "In keeping with its historical resilience, the stock market rose another 300 points today." :)
