|When you asked this question, you received a multitude of answers. Then reading a story from (DISCLAIMER: While the information comes from a Catholic newspaper, its message applies to secular interests as well)The Wyoming Catholic Register, there was a story on the press and "taking complex situations like the Israeli -Palestinian conflict or the tensions with Iraq, and boil them down into stories about villains and heroes..."
"Space limitations and the rules of news writing result in oversimplified headlines and leads that 'are attractive and easy to understand by an audience that likes to think in stereotypes and ideologies,' Jesuit Father Robert White told a Rome conference."
The same holds true in the financial press.
