Maybe the past year and in the past couple of months, it's more negative but now I could say that it's more positive.

In my country every mainstream media article is against the investment in Bitcoin. They started their article by announcing the current bitcoin price and ended up by warning people to invest in btc. They says noone is controlling the market, you can not complain anyone, price volatility and so on. But couple of years ago they don't have a single article about bitcoin.( Still they don't have a article about bitcoin but about its trading )

If people don't believe the MSM is *against* Bitcoin specificially at this point, then look at this. The title says it all.

https://www.investopedia.com/news/bitcoin-price-continues-falling-cryptocurrency-market-crosses-600b/?partner=YahooSA&yptr=yahoo

You make it look like it's some conspiracy. Fact of the matter is that bitcoin has no future because it has extremely high transaction fees, is extremely slow and only 3 of the 500 biggest market places offer it (it were 5 last year so it's even declining).

You hear that Average Joe?? You're gonna get burned if you invest in Bitcoin! So stay very far away! Go back to nice safe stores of value like precious metals.

So for years now there's this running joke, that you can spy an MSM Bitcoin 'hit piece' article by either 1) the left compliment title, or 2) by the negative note left by the very last paragraph or the last line. If the headline doesn't turn Average Joe off completely, then the author must always end the article on a negative note to make sure and sway Average Joe away from Bitcoin.

Here's a typical one:

Bitcoin is more valuable than gold — but nowhere near as stable
http://www.businessinsider.com/bitcoin-price-surges-past-gold-chart-2017-8

I'll quote the very last paragraph:

Quote
Despite their similarities, there's one key difference: Gold has been much stabler than bitcoin, as we can see in this chart from Statista, which is based on data from Coindesk and onvista. So, for investors looking for a safe bet, the precious metal is still the way to go.

I beg you, find me one that breaks this format pattern and prove me wrong!  Grin

I don't think all of them are, but mostly.yes. i don't know what it is that they fear about bitcoin but it seems most mainstream media don't have any idea about how btc can help people.

The MSM will rarely if ever print something positive about Bitcoin, but when its price goes down they make sure to put news about it right on the front page:

Bitcoin falls as one of the world's biggest cryptocurrency markets considers a bill to ban trading

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/10/south-korea-official-reportedly-readying-bill-to-ban-all-cryptocurrency-trading.html

Cryptocurrency markets are tanking after news of shutdown in South Korea
http://www.businessinsider.com/cryptocurrency-market-plunges-after-reported-crypto-exchange-raid-2018-1

You hear that Average Joe, they're going to ban ALL crypto trading in South Korea!

Sell it all now! Run very very far away!

Very well said actually, most of the articles coming from them ends in the same result, just in order to panic people so that they can take wrong decissions and the tension on the market increases.

Very similar to China's summer action.
