Open Thread: What Value is the Financial Media?

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On October 10, 2013 @ 7:10 pm In Financial Press | Comments Disabled

During the TBP conference [1] this week, several of the commentators noted how little wisdom gets disseminated by the financial press. As we noted this morning, we see lots of noise, and very little signal [2].

Indeed, that has been a theme in my press criticism — too much useless filler.

So, what us your beef about the financial press? TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, blogs — what works and what doesn’t? I don’t want only bashing — We know there is lots of junk — but what is worthwhile?

(I am working on a column, and this is my open source research)


What say ye?
