It's snow news : Comments

By Walt Brasch, published 5/3/2010

It'd be nice if TV news spent as much time discussing significant issues as it does delivering semi-accurate weather reports.

The weather reports do serve a useful purpose most of the tme.

The many hours devoted to airing the views of discredited economists and specialists who have a record accuracy of almost zero is hard to understand. How many of the financial experts forecast the global financial crash?

The hours spent on speculating on the possibility of the reserve bank raising, lowering or leaving interest rates the same starts as soon as the latest adjustment has been announced.

Many hours are devoted to reporting the views of experts on security, terrorism etc.

When will the media do a bit of research and report on the records of accuracy achieved by the "experts"?
