Suggestion number one: Have the Business Section begin touting the positive as well as the negative aspects of the economy. Example: Home mortgages NOT in default in the U.S. total approximately 97.5 percent, but you would never know that from reading the media. Consumer spending has actually increased, but all you read about are anecdotal articles about families auctioning their goods to buy gas. Employment is at one of its all time highs, but you would never guess that each time unemployment edges up one-tenth of one percent. Downtown Chicago has its greatest building boom in history. Ever read about that? Perhaps Mr. Michaels can convince his business writers that the constant drum beat of gloom negatively affects the very businesses that the Tribune is seeing to advertise in its paper. No one wants to sugar coat the news; certainly there are problems. But balance would be welcome.

I agree. Also, lets see some stories on how many people were not murdered today. Also, more stories on how many cars were not in accidents. And why do you ignore the fact that most days CTA trains don't break down and strand people in dark tunnels? Don't you realize that you are ignoring feel good stories to focus on gloom and doom? Stupid media.

As a Clear Channel radio refugee, I send my extreme regrets and condolences to Mr. Hiller and Mr. Smith.
At least you don't have to report to Mr.(Lee) Abrams......yet.
