I believe the idea is to give people varied opinions pro and con. You do not "pay" for the daily news stories that motley fool puts out. Those stories are written by DIFFERENT authors with different opinions within the organization. If you want confirmation bias watch the political cable channels.
The MF's "true" pay services do not change sentiments on a weekly or even a monthly basis. In fact they trade in and out far less than your average hedge fund.
We all got kicked in the face when the analysts and grading institutions gave any business, industry or company an exaggerated grade, all they (institutions, etc) had to do was pay for the grade. analysts brought the entire globe to its financial knees. For example, look at all the dolts that bow to cramer. they quote him. they quote others that quote him. people just have to learn to think for themselves. The montly punks' days are over and had been over since 2001.
