Media-A-F

11 Mar

While the Corona virus is a serious problem, it is being blown all out of proportion by the media. We are seeing a general fear spreading about the Corona virus far exceeding its effects. Like with the mass shootings, the media seems intent on spreading fear yet the virus itself is little more of a threat than the flu. Even though there are only about 800 cases in the U.S., major sports events are being canceled, schools closed, and towns are now being quarantined causing major economic and social disruptions. In addition, the stock market has been running like a roller coaster. Those who panic and sell their stocks are losing heavily but those who are sitting back and watching the market are raking in millions by buying up stocks cheap from those who panic and waiting for them to go back up. While we need to be cautious, we should not give into the fear around us.
