I posted something from Xinhua for Gods sake.
And this is important why?
Consumer confidence is a weird thing that is definitely impacted by the media and messages sent by political leaders to whom people look for confidence. I know that seems silly, but people look to their elected leaders for comfort.
So if that was the case, then the economy would be growing proportionally to the approval ratings of those in power. NEVERMIND WE
HAVE THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK! So let's say that the economy will grow of a majority approval rating and will reduce in periods of a negative rating. So if Bush's approval rating was only 51% (see here: http://www.pollingreport.com/BushJob.htm
) then wouldn't the economy be feeling a very limited growth? (Nevermind the fact that the Bush approval rating has been a bit in flux around the 50% mark)
The republicans are telling everyone that there are evil people who are intent on hurting us, and that they are the better party to lead us through this.
Hmmmmm...... so if the people in power don't have confidence, then should I (your logic)
Actually Whitehatter. The liberal media in this country is also doing all they can to play up "slower growth" in those reserve districts....
So by this logic the "conservative" media is doing what...............
