News Interest Index: Views of Economic News Little Changed

News Interest Index: Views of Economic News Little Changed

The public's perceptions of economic news remain mixed, but continue to be much more negative than they were earlier this year.

About half of the public (54%) says they are hearing a mix of good and bad news about the economy these days, while 41% say they are hearing mostly bad news.

These views are little changed from July and August. From January through June, however, roughly two-thirds said they were hearing mixed news about the economy while about three-in-ten said the news was mostly bad. The percentage hearing good news has remained very low since late 2008; currently just 3% say they are hearing mostly good news about the economy.
