The Real Story Behind National Real Estate News - Advertising

Those who wish to actually participate in discussions are welcomed to the portal and exchange ideas and suggestions to make our world a better place to live in.Newspapers thrive catchy headlines that can sum up the drama of the day. But it's important to read with a critical eye, especially when you see a blanket statement at the top of the page like "National Home Sales Plummet." The headline looks good, and it's likely to turn heads, but how true is it? It may be true on average in recent years that fewer homes are being sold across the United States, and at lower prices. But many large markets across the nation are doing well, or improving. Unfortunately nothing gets in the way of a good headline like subtlety, and those inconvenient subtleties have forced the media to cast a shadow over some very bright real estate stories.One of those bright stories is the Kansas City, Missouri real estate market. Other strong markets after the boom include Madison, Wisconsin, and Pho enix Arizona.While it's clear some real estate markets aren't as strong as they were a few years ago, areas like Kansas City, and Detroit can show us how national average home values could fall while still being as strong as ever in many places. That's something the newspaper headlines don't always mention.These days you can turn to just about any of the major news channels and get information about late breaking stories, but there is also a decidedly entertainment aspect to these news channels that is disturbing. Some of them, like "Headline News" don't even attempt to be a solid news provider anymore. They are pure tabloid and usually they only provide gossip about the latest missing child or murdered wife or whatever the latest juicy tidbit is. Others like "Fox News" are just fronts for political stances, in this case the Republican party which seems to control all of Fox's news programming in a very blatant and disturbing way. They even go out of their way to pronounce t hemselves "Fair and Balanced" but the opposite is true and it is transparent to all but the most partisan of viewers. Michael Moore claimed that Fox News helped to push the 2000 election in favor of the Republican candidate George W. Bush, but it seems far-fetched that any of the news channels could affect something as important as a national election. It is a fact, however that they called the election early in favor of Bush without any real proof that he had in fact won. Whatever the real story was we may never know.We all know that the tabloid news shows like "Entertainment Tonight" and "Extra" are all fluff and more concerned about following celebrities around town like paparazzi than covering any real news, but when Fox News and CNN, supposedly real news channels start reporting the same trivial material, it becomes a matter for concern. Many people have stopped watching these news channels altogether and instead favor the hard hitting and incisive PBS News Hour. This i s one of the few remaining news channels that take their time reporting a story and they go in-depth to cover all the different angles. They are interested in finding out the facts and this cannot be done with twenty second sound bites. This type of journalism requires investigative reporting done by real professionals.
