There are three fundamental mainstream sources for news.
The first is mainstream media such as Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Business Week, and The Economist. The second are blogs, such as Market Folly or Zero Hedge. Note that the former source would be more likely to report the optimistic viewpoint of the market. The latter tends to report on the negative side of the market.
The third source for news comes from the ordinary citizens who take the time to write comments on the previously mentioned sources for news.
It is a potential source for getting unique insight.

My emphasis is in bold.
