If the media did not constantly tell us we were in a "great" recession, would anyone be able to tell by looking? We're living in an age where poor people have cellphones and cable. Pro sports is spending record amounts on free agents, because they're making record revenues from TV. Since the recession started, not a single sporting event has been canceled because no one could afford it. If it wasn't for the media, I'd say we were in a golden age of crazy prosperity.
