It is natural that those who are in the favor they are very less but those who are against they are more in number so it is also in the case of bitcoin and crypto that media is biased against it and when bad news comes in the market they try to spread rumors about bad news and crypto falling so because of that short sellers sell their coin with thinking further and with this way the crypto market affected price show adverse movement and this all because of media.

I bet once they initiate a bull run lol you will hear tons of FOMO and good news coming out suddenly to make people follow them and buy so they can dump on new victims on the way down form a new All-Time High.

Do you think the media is trying to destroy Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ? I think they show 95% of the times only bad news. Why is this happening ?
I personally also don't think why do they do things like that?
Maybe what because they hate bitcoin, then what do they hate about bitcoin? Even though bitcoin is very profitable and can change your economy in the future.

Nope. It's a fact. You can read a good article with a title "WHY BAD NEWS IS GOOD NEWS" that explains it all. (https://psmag.com/social-justice/bad-news-is-good-news) Here's the relevant quote from the article: "According to recent research published in the journal Information Economics and Policy, the public demands bad news because it is more beneficial than good news"
The same thing applies to crypto, i.e. crypto+bad news sells better than crypto+good news. I believe that's the reason behind it.

Yes you are right. I have long ceased to trust the media and no longer watch them on TV for about 2 years. Their goal is a high rating, and for this they spread panic. They do not provide accurate information. It is a pity that most people believe in what they say

Don't trust too much on bad rumors. You should listen to the sharing of failed lessons and the success of experts in the crypto field and save the necessary information.

The work of media is just about making news based from what's happening. They made news based from the facts and of course it is true. Media has their ethics as well. However, what would release by the media is all from editorial meeting. And sometimes, some media moves based from the owner intentions. Some of them are usually not a big media. They're just an online small media company. No big media will produce the news until 95% of the bad. Just take a look at forbes, the guardians, the economist etc. Since the media have to produce news in balance, they won't do such things.

But those are rather big companies. I think the "media" that we're talking about in here are the ones that we see on the TV. Local channels, not international channels. International channels will be called out by so many people, since they have so much audience, and would hurt their reputation if they release biased news. Local channels, on the other hand, can't be called out at all. People often do, but to no avail. They don't really care even when a post on social media regarding them being biased gets viral. There would be people lucky enough to know the truth but most only have the TV as a source of news. It's been 3 times already when a local channel has announced and warned the people in my country about bitcoin. They say it's a scam yet here we are, enjoying profits. Roll Eyes

And I bet they, themselves, have bitcoin investments too. They just don't want people to be so involved in something so revolutionary.

Yes you are right. I have long ceased to trust the media and no longer watch them on TV for about 2 years. Their goal is a high rating, and for this they spread panic. They do not provide accurate information. It is a pity that most people believe in what they say
Same here, I have stopped watching TV for as long as I can remember. It's just full of misleading information. Plus, it really is true that they are selling FUD. More FUD, more people are going to listen to them. Whatever that will sell to the people, they are going to be airing. The news doesn't really care about regular murders or whatnot. They care about news that are about a mother who was killed by her own child, because it brings more people in. Also, the news aren't really allowed to say bad things to the government since the government can shut down their channel right away.

News from day to day serves new, and change every day, one day the coin will try everything well, as the other full collapse and nothing can be done, so you need to be reliable.

And the more, the better. Sometimes, I believe they may help someone destroy something or someone, but just for a reasonable consideration, i.e. more $$$$. That's about it.  Cool

The actual press has established a lot of question within the thoughts of individuals producing all of them frightened from the company as well as which makes it seem like the rip-off that is absolutely no great occasionally personally i think these people receive money or even they're simply already been biased.

Not all the media but some of them, are biased. It is a true fact that all the media run towards how to gain much TRP and they get it largely by telecasting only bad news.

Medias these days are hard to trust since there are a lot of time that they just want to make up stories and tell it in a broadcast so they will be able to earn money. I don't trust the news right now unless that the news being reported is close to our place where I can confirm whether the news is really true or not.

Disagree, in decembre, all medias were very optimistic toward cryptocurrencies. It is all about the "hype curve".

of course, the media are showing bad news to intimidate people, and so that people can quickly sell their bitcoins and altcoins)

What media is doing is something like market manipulation and any crypto currency cannot reached to its highest potential in the market due to the bad behavior of media because often negative information's are broadcasts to public viewers always make there hopes and confidence about crypto assets to crash instantly which make price to fall all the time without giving any currency to increase its price

The only ones that are affected by the false information the media is giving to the people are the ones who aren't in the business yet. The ones that are in here know well that those are nothing but lies and are well-aware that media spreads FUD every single day because that's what gives them the most traffic. They aren't going to feature the people that have made fortune from crypto, but rather, they are going to feature the newbies that were once a victim of HYIP or a ponzi scheme or cloud mining and then claim that it was bitcoin that scammed them. It's impossible that the understandings of the people behind the news is that shallow since all the information about bitcoin is out there and it has a logical explanation why bitcoin has reached that price.


This isn't just your impression, but I don't think they aim to destroy Bitcoin either. I guess they keep spreading the news that sells even if it's fake news. Who cares? All they care for is $$$$.

They really have no reputation to keep so they can do this all the time. They spread fake news just every now and then but not most of the time, so they are still going to appear credible to the people. Getting bashed on social media and having viral posts about them spreading misinformation is even what they like more because their name appears on people's timeline. They don't care about reputation because they know that people are still going to trust them even after reading that they have been spreading wrong information.

Sad, but true. Unfortunately. And the worst part is that people usually trust them all the time, so nothing will change...

This is a new way of war strategy backed by powerful banks and governments and these kind of strategies are used when you cannot kill the enemy which is bitcoin and the crypto market through legal ways by actions because the enemy is very powerful and we know how much money circulated in the crypto world even now and how many new businesses are implemented per month and that make so many people rely on cryptocurrencies and the network so any single government cannot destroy the crypto world and that is why they are using the media to neutralize the crypto market before they take down it

social media is indeed a medium to get information quickly even though sometimes the information presented is not reliable, it also happens to negative information about bitcoin because many people who are not happy with a clean financial technology free of corruption

I'm kinda confused seeing that, because everytime i see news about crypto or bitcoin related, they only bring bad things and informations that make bitcoin image become even more negative.
I don't know why, but maybe because people prefer to see bad things instead of good one because it's more entertaining.
