Hey everyone, I am doing a research paper for my business 101 class and I need to create a poll to measure what others think of my research topic. If you could please vote as this report is planning to be presented to my college's dean, featured on someone's Youtube channel, and some statistics possibly on our local FOX news (Fox undercover) affiliate Do you think the media is affecting our economy? Whenever an open ended question is asked "Do you think we are headed into a second recession?" The answer is always "yes." What does that do, scare people from spending and investing which are the only things that are going to get us out of this mess. Dow Jones down 300 pts? Oh my god the media is crawling all over it. Dow up 400 pts... it is a 5 second clip on the news.
