Mainstream Media an the Financial Crisis
I only watch or read the mainstream news to find out what drivel is being fed to the masses because I know that the average person will be affected by it and so will the markets--short term. The mainstream media for the most part (TV, Newspapers, Magazines) is owned and controlled by five mega corporations in the US who are all in agreement on their goals and who stand to gain from the current situaton. What the mainstream media is broadcasting and printing about the financial crisis is engineered to control the thinking and behavior of the people, not to report the truth.
My news sources include newspapers online from different countries, financial reports (you learn a LOT from following finance) and even sites like Kiyosaki.
Dan the Mentor, there are MANY who are not drinking the cool aid besides the people you named. Try Jim Puplava www.financialsense.com (though I don´t think he has the full picture), Bob Chapman of www.theinternationalforecaster.com, Dr. Stanley Monteith www.radioliberty.com to name a few. There are many others. I especially appreciate this expose book by Robert Kiyosaki. Among other things, it is GREAT educational material for passing on to the younger members of my extended family. I love it!
