The Good News Network® publishes news that reflects our values. These are values that are reinforced with every story and commentary.
The Good News Network is expressing a philosophy. We believe in striving for cooperation, sustainability, generosity, and unity — and trying in our lives to love. We will share analysis of current affairs and public opinion that reflect this philosophy of optimism, because many, including well-known columnists, are optimistic.
We do not want to polarize with debate but unify upon common ground. We believe the common ground upon which we can find agreement as citizens of the 21st century is based on the traditional seven values listed above.
We report on outstanding citizen action to offset the daily barrage of negative news. We showcase innovative solutions to the world's problems.
We feature articles that help to shatter negative stereotypes. We try to uplift our views of government, politicians, the corporate community, the entertainment industry, public schools, inner cities and each other.
