Media Bias, Media Ignorance?

Is the media being fair in its coverage of this news story?

Many people would like the answer to that question because it appears that they are making a lot out of nothing, is there really nothing else on to talk about?

Is the media becoming the new threat to the American Dream?

This headline, from Yahoo is a good example of a dubious use of fear in an article.  Notice how they say it is unprecedented debt default, but did not Greece do the same thing not so long ago, so is it really unprecedented?  Just curious what the media might be up to with its use of language, are they trying to force something to happen?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Congressional leaders rushed to line up Republican and Democratic votes on Monday for a White House-backed deal to raise the U.S. borrowing limit and avert an unprecedented debt default.

 

They say that were in a crisis, that things are really bad, that the sky is falling do you really believe those bafoons, (allegedly)

You have to wonder just what is going on inside their heads, (if you could stand it that is)

Is the media trying to produce a run on the banks?

Are they trying to influence the stock market, (is that legal)

What is the objective of the news when they seem to be trying to influence political events with news coverage?
