American Media Needs A a Wake-up Call

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Shimmering Sands Realty
Hey Folks; Those of you, who know me, know that I seldom focus on the negative. I can’t hold my tongue any longer though, on one heinous subject….the American Media. I know I’m not the only one, who is fed up, with their sensationalism and negative “Sky is falling” bullcrap, just to get ratings. On Yahoo today a headline article was “Where Home Prices Could Fall Another 50%”. Two other headlines, in this article were “Housing to Fall Even Further” and “Housing: It’ll Get Worse”. These bozos are talking about very specific, hard hit markets, but do you think they make that clear….of course not, that might hurt their ratings. When these turkeys make broad, inaccurate statements like these, they should be obligated to mention the markets where the opposite is occurring. Right now there are healthy Real Estate markets in America. Not to mention the home ownership opportunities, that are available for people today, that weren’t available 3 years ago. My market, in Panama City Florida has already seen healthy signs of recovery and a strengthening market. Our strength is in part due to the New International Airport being built here, but we aren’t the only place seeing sunshine. The bottom-line here is that the news is a lot more positive than the media is willing to portray. It’s time these people are held accountable for all of the negativity that they are pumping into our country. I for one am sick of hearing it. OK folks….back off my soapbox and back to Positive Chuck.
Thanks for listening.

Totally agree Chuck.  They also report on the car accident and not the person that smiled and let someone into their lane; they report on the random shooting and not the strangers walking past each other on the sidewalk who smile at each other just to be nice.  Sensationalism sells...if people stopped watching (yeah right) the media will stop reporting.
