Dallas Morning News Headline Tracker
March 23rd, 2009 12:13 PM

This is a work in progress in the collecting data stages - not sure where this is headed.  It's a frequent concensus in peer conversation that the Dallas Morning News prints more negative Real Estate headlines than positive.  In February I started saving the headlines and keeping score.  This will be a running blog entry, so it will change often.
