ZH is the gloom and doom central for the market but they never found a gold or silver coin they didnt like.

Totally biased and bearish website and yeah they get it wrong all the time..when they get it wrong it is buried with the onslaught of new stuff so you rarely can easily find their wrongers..

They also love to brag-a-thon when they get something right.

captain, the link should be to an article on economic collapse.

walltstreet, yeah, it seems like just about every post on the site has the same general theme but most of the posts have a bunch of comments after and no one calls them out.  it's all a bunch of sarcasm and patting each other on the back.  you would think with such doomsday comments, there would be some disagreement unless all of the people who disagree just get tired of the same thing over and over.

so what websites do you go to for news/economic info?  i think i got zerohedge from koaj.  it's ok but too much of the same thing over and over.  and none of the comments after the posts are helpful.

Funny that I find most of my stuff on pages like Yahoo Finance, there are blogs and commentary in various areas there and the biases really dont seem to exist. It isnt political or slanted to one side that I can see..which is far from what I can say about ZH.

ZH is good to find out international goodies and back door stuff but as you have noted it is totally biased and the side comments are totally useless.

No, I avoid SeekingAlpha, they are even worse than ZH. Anyone can make a blog there and I find the information on that site to be very lacking.

Yahoo Finance links the WSJ and Barrons and Forbes and they have their own commentary and views. They also link CNBC stuff (which I dont view much) and most all other large sites.

What seems key to finding good stuff is having some stock symbols searched, that displays the stock symbol and the accompanying news for that symbol. So today I have FAZ on my symbol list and it linked some interesting WSJ articles, also I usually have the Vix symbols which give interesting articles.

Their breakout stuff is pretty interesting as they have guests from both sides of the aisle and often give me the chance to see if I like the commentary and I can look up stuff from the guest if I do.
