One of the simplest reasons I like news from the Wall Street Journal is that its not all bad news. In the Don Henley song Dirty Laundry he points out how the news casts go. Read CNN, Fox, MSNBC or Drudge and its a lot of the same. In the main things to be upset/concerned about, things bad that have happened. So on and so forth. Dirty Laundry.
The financial news on the other hand is often split between bad news and good news surprises. Good news is an opportunity and so it is also published and helps sell pages. Its about the only place you’ll find success and good news regularly reported on.
