Of course! After all, they never sensationalize or create clearly biased view points. But who reads newspapers?
The unfortunate truth is, folks read and trust the resources that tell them what they want to hear. Yes, some folks thrive on bad news and sensational journalism. The more segmented and polaraized we make our sources of information, the high the vitriol goes.
Personally, I don't trust media resources for real estate advice because they invariably quote Zillow, RealtyTrac or Trulia as sources. Need more be said?
