I would suggest that various government (and other) operatives are making their presence known. This is undoubtedly the case with the BBC.

Or the editor decided to assign all the spare journalists to an ...

8-page SPECIAL:

Banks will collapse,

your house will be worth £5 by this time next week

... read our exclusive made-up opinions

ONLY

in Sunday's special supplement.

By the time you've finished reading our headline, your pension will be worth £100/week less to you when you retire.

SHOCK ... HORROR

And any other twisting of the facts and scaremongering they can fit in

Even Deccers reported it on this morning's breakfast money minute. But dont let that stop the BBC conspiracy theories...

...they're probably researching what went wrong.....some of them have to get it past Rupert....whose DOW interests etc mean he has to be careful about the way he and his cohorts express themselves in public.....probably get a few insight style investigative reports in the next few days....at least the 'Sundays' have time to think, reflect and dig.....could make good reading... :o:o:o if they're any good at it.... :unsure:

The fact is, 'credit crunch' means nothing to most tabloid-reading folk. It just isn't sexy, or dare I say, understandable enough.

Next month's IR rise will grab some headlines, though (here's hoping)... ;)

According to Julia Caesar of the BBC the stock market correction will mean that the BoE will not raise interest rates and people will move money from shares to housing. All good news for home-owners.

Oh, that's OK then. For a minute there, I thought the impending global credit crunch would mean that banks would tighten their lending which would have an enormous effect on the property market...but if some tubby, blonde munter on the BBC says it's time to pile into property, that'll do for me. <_<

The media was told quite openly after the 1980s crash that they were free to report stock movements in future but NOT to sensationilse it in any way. Given the market is driven by fear and greed and the media in this country is so OTT this seems quite sensible policy to keep a lid on the doom-mongers who would given half a chance encourage Jo Public to cash in every investment and cash out every bank account which would could destroy many institutions
