…if you’re like me, then you’re probably thinking “W…The…F” right about now. How is this NEWS? And CNN is not the only perpetrator.
News, in general, has become dull, negative, and overly-focused on Entertainment. BBC, NYTimes, and a few others are the only few that show signs of hope. Anyone who watches anything else is just feeding their brains with garbage. Why is Bad News the only type of News? The Breaking News tickers every day mostly list something irrelevant to the lives of the general public (such as Lebron James fouling out of Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Finals) or filled with Bad News. “Today three girls were found after 10 years…down the damn street from where they were kidnapped!” “Man guns down children in an elementary school!…oh and BTW, guns ARE NOT the problem. No, they should still be available to the public.” Etc. Etc. You get the point.
News is associated with the negative. We are constantly exposed to flaws in society. And i’m not saying that we should have a constant stream of people donating blood, but it should not be so one-sided. Otherwise we’ll just grow to think of the world as impure, filled with crime and corruption. Where is the hope for good?
