Thanks for stopping by, Debbie. I don't want to present the media as the big bad monster, but the pressure of writing content that sells on a daily basis precludes good research and an understanding of the market that those in real estate have. An hour of research does not equal years of real estate experience. Even the real estate agents differ in their opinions, so maybe the news should start billing themselves as tabloids instead of factual conveyors of data! ;-)

Bonnie -

I have asked myself this very question for months now. I personally am of the camp that the media wanted to create the fear and wanted to create doubt - or as you say, the Pygmalion Effect.

Great post!
