Economics 101 for Journalists

The release of a new book by Chris Warden, "Voodoo Anyone? Economics for Journalists," couldn't come at a better time.

Americans are getting too much bad economic news (and I don't mean bad as in the economy is in the tank, I mean bad as in biased, slanted, one-sided, partisan).

Unemployment is still 5 percent, which means 95 percent of Americans have a job.

The so-called "mortgage crisis" covers 1 percent of the real estate market.

When you hear bad economic news, keep in mind that this is an election year and the majority of the mainstream media wants you to elect Democrats, so the news will always be tainted.
