Have you noticed the news is always full of bad news? where is all the good things people do. It is so depressing i know we have to keep up with the world but my God do we have to just have bad news? I live in Memphis and the news makes me sick. anyone agree it is time for a good news channel where maybe he can hear the good in the world?

There is good news in the world. Admittedly it is quieter and much harder to find than the bad news that tends to trumpet on the evening news like a foghorn in the night. * There are discoveries that fight diseases that have ravaged mankind for thousands of years. Animals are brought back from the brink of extinction. Gardens and zoos protect Earth's fragile biodiversity from disappearing in near silence. * While good news is much quieter and less sensational, it is more common than bad news. For every murder, there are a dozen births of babies into families. * I say the day we have a good news channel is the day the world really is in very big trouble.

Well, just because there have been bad news recently, doesn't mean there won't be any good ones in the near future...

This is actually the key reason I stopped reading the paper and watching the news on tv several yrs ago...Unfortunately the negative is what sells when it comes to the media...sick but true....

I have noticed this also. There is always someone killing someone being reported on our local channel. I hate to even watch it but I like to see the weather. I haven't heard good news on any news channel either for a very long time. The world is so corrupt.

Oh I couldn't agree more!! It's the very reason why I don't read the news paper anymore because all I see is the bad things that's going on. News on tv is the same way and it's like "Enough Already!" Geeze. Like my parents say which is true, when one does good, nobody hears of it but when one does bad, everybody hears about it.
