Maybe we should take a lesson from this as we listen to all the talking heads who continue to tell us how it is.
Do they really know what they're talking about?
Are they truly objective?
Who's best interest are they looking out for?
I'm particularly sensitive to this sort of thing as far as the financial media is concerned. It seems to me that the public is increasingly being victimized by all the financial reporters who give investment advice ( direct or implied ) without a license.
Be careful what you believe "as reported" by the media.
