If we know anything about investing, we should know the media is the worst place for a source of relevant information. We can assume that the real importance of anything the media reports on is inversely proportional to the intensity of reporting. Nick Murray points this out in the attached article regarding the media reporting on the Ebola scare of 2014/2015. As proven by the Visual Capitalist – “How the Media Blows things Out of Proportion” the Ebola story was off the historical charts. This story got more space than any previous “global scare” yet. There has been exactly 1 death in North America attributed to Ebola during that time.
