The Daily News Novel

from the too-much dept

Here’s an article that points out that there are way too many news stories about’s financial status on a daily basis. With all the stories we’ve posted recently about pump-and-dump schemes and “news as advertising” (or was that “advertising as news”) I wonder how such a massive number of published stories about one single company effect how that company operates and their financial performance. I remember a class I once took on IPOs where the professor said that going IPO was putting yourself in a very public fishbowl. Of course, that only matters if people are looking at your particular bowl. In the case of, it seems that no one can stay away.
