no-doom-no-gloom-button.jpg A jewelry store called Gems of La Costa, in Carlsbad, CA, wanted to steer media reporting in a more positive direction.

“After so much negative news reporting over the last months,” gemologist Marianne Laleuf told the Good News Network, “our store decided to help people keep a positive attitude by displaying “No Hablo Recesion” signs, and handing out “Doom Gloom Prohibited” stickers.”

An overwhelming positive customer response to the signs and stickers brought a flurry of media coverage from local San Diego news shows and newspapers, like the San Diego Union Tribune.

Neighborhood business owners are displaying the signs and agree that media reporting is affecting consumer confidence. Watch or read this report on the TV News 8 website, featuring the jewelry store’s owner explaining, “Bad news is bad for business.”


  1. Corporations ( Giant) own and control 90% of all media and congress mostly republicans and doing what ever it takes to keep the middle class working person AFRAID,SCARED.I SEE nor HEAR very little support from them for our middle class.Media rarely complained during bush and what a disaster he put the middle class in.So when the media complains about President Obama and his leadership it tells me he’s working for the middle class and is doing a fantastic effort in bringing back the American dream ( Security & Prosperity )
    President Obama,congress and we the people together will break the chains from corporate & republican control of making the rich richer, a few working class and a poor impoverished working society.NO MORE D&G Reagan
