Is the Media partly responsible for the economic crisis?
Shouldn't newspapers and television be held accountable for speculative information that is damaging economy even further? What can we do? Perhaps boycott them?
In my opinion it is. It appears to me we rarely get unbiased news today and it's usually with a liberal spin. It appears to me the media was very instrumental in the last election for POTUS and will be again this election. This country is in pitiful financial shape and a lot of that credit goes to the POTUS and the mainstream media that quite obviously supports him. Some of their information can't even be described as "speculative" but rather than news should be described as personal opinion by the undistinguished few. Many Americans now listen to and/or read national news but take it with a grain of salt, form their own opinion about the subject matter and it's source and rarely expect bottom line truth/facts about anything. As to what we can do about it -- seems we've all got to think for ourselves and not be led like sheep by mainstream, biased media. As to a boycott -- there's too many variables involved to even imagine how that would work or what effect it would have.
The media appears to be biased on the side of liberalism.do you remember any of them reporting on
The Senator Coburn report '' WASTE IN GOVERNMENT'' http://coburn.senate.gov/public/index.c … 1ba7bc448a
WASTE IN GOVERNMENT ALL IN THE RED
‘’ Back In Black’’
The President needs to tell the American people the truth about the economy.It appears that watching his performance the last 3 years that he is over his head, incompetant and attempting to break the country.Obama has no plans, he only talks and continues to threathen Congress for not acting the way he wants.
Oh, let's not forget Obama complaining for what he inherited from the previous administration.We all know that the he and the Democrats had majority control of both the House and the Senate from Jan. 2007 to June 2010.
There is no doubt the media is liberally biased, however that is no excuse for the intentional perpetuation of propaganda that is blatantly wrong and in many instances is a pure falsehood. In fact I recall making some incredibly important financial decisions predicated on the media and political reports about the stability of the financial system. And somehow calling telling the American people the truth about the economy or the Marxist socialist Obama agenda is not news worthy.
The media does bare responsibility for the economic crisis because it is their job to investigate and follow these things, which is why they have special "First Amendment" rights. The media today has continued to allow Obama to lie perpetually. This is a disservice to Americans and the country
And example of the uselessness and spin of the Mainstream media is the LEAD story being Jan Brewer, Arizona's governor, pointing her finger at the President...I'm surprise she didn't punch him in the face, while the Occupy Wall Street protest in Oakland which is out of control, is no big deal.

But also the way NBC covered the Brewer/Obama confrontation made Brewer out to be unladylike, when in fact the President lacked any degree of gentlemanly honor. So once again the media lacks integrity in claiming fairness.

In 1933 the British hegemony ended with the rising of two super powers post World War II. One of those super powers got eliminated in 1990, that's the erstwhile USSR. Do you think now it's time for the US to lose its leadership in a unipolar world, especially after such a wild meltdown of the US...
