no news is good news

newspaperor is it?

I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase before but never has it been more true. No news nowadays is ever good news.

Think about it for a moment. When did you last hear about something good happening? Maybe good news just doesn’t sell newspapers. Maybe it doesn’t make people switch on to the nightly news bulletins. For whatever reason, the media seem to have decided that the whole world is in the midst of doom and gloom and no matter where you go or what you see, basically the news is bad. It’s like the end of the world is nigh!

Ok, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that there aren’t a lot of bad things happening. I’m not saying you should put on your rose-tinted glasses and see everything in a positive light, because in reality the world isn’t all happy without a care of its own. There are some terrible things going on out there and of course there is always worry & fear: worry about the economic future, worry about wars and terrorism, fear for jobs and for health and for tons of other things.

What I am saying is, wouldn’t it be nice just once, to open up a newspaper & read about something good? to switch on the television news and to hear about some happy things going on? Wouldn’t you feel inspired and motivated and be given a whole new lease of life if you heard about the good in the world? Because it really isn’t all bad you know, there are some good things to think about.

But until then, it seems that no, news really isn’t good news and I for one think that’s a shame 😦
