You really can’t pay too much attention to the media. They’re not a public information service, they’re businesses fighting other media businesses for market share.
And conflicting perspectives grab interest. Take the situation where there are 100 people debating a new road or an increase in property taxes or some incident. Suppose 99 are happy about whatever the issue is. The media will put that across: but the guy they really want to talk to is No.100 who is against. He’s 1% of the consensus but will probably get nearly 50% of the coverage.
I bet if all 100 are positive, there’ll be zero coverage.
News isn’t to help us, ts to help the news business.
I suggest this is really important advice of you’re a forex trader and follow the news.
