Mainstream Media- Cheerleaders without Pom-Poms



If there is one consistency about mainstream media, particularly the financial media, it is that no matter the economy reality or how much the stock market falls, the mantra is 'Invest, Invest, Invest!!!' They are the ultimate economic cheerleaders minus the pom poms.  To them, money Must be invested Somewhere.. Profit Must be acquired, and investors are their 'heroes', so they happily report and write articles to appeal to that sociopathic psychosis.   I decided out of curiosity to glance at major online news outlets this evening to see how many articles pushed investing, in spite of the Dow dropping 107pts to a close of 10,360.  There were too many to reprint here.. so here's a sampling:
