Oh I definately think that more positive news would be better. The problem is the good news isn't what we watch. I mean I know a lot of times I will just have the news on in the background and don't pay any attention to it unless I hear something bad. One day in particular, becuase it was kinda personal to me, I heard bomb and the name of my middle school in the same sentence, only part of the news I watched that day. It's what we are used to and it's what we want to know about. We are more interested in the crime stories than we are pretty much anything else. That's why all we see on the news is crime. Then you wonder why other countries think it's so crazy here in the states. Think about it, come from a different country to a big city and watch one night of the news... Wouldn't you be ready to go back home?lol
