Why believe everything?

No doubt the news media is a poor tool for seeking the best
information on any subject. A mistake commonly made, and to the media's
advantage, is the assumption on the part of the viewer that the viewer
is getting a balanced story. This usually couldn't be further from the
truth.

If you are upset with the recent polls referenced by the
media then you are letting yourself get upset with one poll from one
media source. Is it correct? Does it represent the American people? Is
it valid, reliable, and balanced? Chances are probably not. Please
don't make the mistake of assuming, like most, that what you see or
hear is reality. What we really are seeing is the news corporation's
efforts to make things reality by advertising them to you.

So, is Obama "up" in the polls, or does the media want o him to appear up to produce viewer behavior?

And similarly, is there a "crisis" or
have the bank and Washington executives dreamed up a crisis as a scare
tactic to produce a behavior? It's up to you. If you choose to become
afraid, then, yes, their plan has worked and there is a crisis. If you
involve yourself with the facts and focus on solving the problems aound
you, then there are only solutions on which to concentrate.
