Now that the Bitcoin price is rising again, mainstream media outlets remain tightlipped on this significant change. For some reason, they refuse to report on Bitcoin price increases until the value goes down once again. The lack of education and unwillingness to learn by mainstream media outlets shines through once again.
Where Art Thou, Media Outlets?
Although there is an argument to be made as to why bad news will attract a lot more eyeballs than positive events, mainstream media and Bitcoin remain in a complicated love-hate relationship for the foreseeable future. The media loves to downplay Bitcoin at every turn, yet they hate to report on something positive every once in awhile.
Take a look at the current Bitcoin price trend, for example, which seems to be getting zero mainstream media attention. Or to be more precise, the only attention it is getting so far comes in the form of uneducated writers acting surprised Bitcoin is still alive and kicking. Ignorance can be bliss, but some people just overdo it when things do not stroke their own egos or agendas.
