A study to be released Monday of financial news coverage this year found that government, Wall Street and a small handful of story lines got the bulk of the attention while much less was paid to the economic troubles of ordinary people.
The study, by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, also found that when the stock market rebounded from its lows and pitched battles in Washington ended, the news media turned their attention away from economic coverage.
I also read a lot over the weekend how the Republicans are practically hiding their giddiness over high unemployment that they see are their path to return to power. No doubt they'll gain seats in Congress in the sheer anger factor -- but aren't voters concerned that the GOP has no ideas or proposals on unemployment? Because they probably should be.
