Media coverage and the Dow Jones average (in the wild)

I was driving home tonight, and I was listening to Kai Ryssdal (my boy) on Marketplace. As he closed the show, he mentioned a graph about the relationship between the Dow Jones average and the media coverage that the economy receives put out by the Pew Research Center. They found that as the economy tanks media coverage increases. Likewise, as the economy recovers, the media is spending less time covering it. The graph is here.

Cheers.
