Purveyors of bad news are selling us down the river

THEIR dispatches are little more than dumbed-down diatribes. Their self-promotional tactics would make Jedward blush. And their forecasts of recession were made so often and early that, like a broken clock, they were bound to be right at least twice a day. Our politicians take them seriously, but that just goes to show how superficial they are.

Unfortunately, the dime-a-dozen divas of despair are also darlings of a media addicted to reporting the next apocalypse. A media that has completely missed the huge positive angle on our economy. That's because, to get the positive angle, you have to look back -- and forward -- over a longer period than two years.
