Featuring only positive news on this website is not meant to suggest that there is no need to learn about all the negative stuff that’s going on. Often it is beneficial for us to hear the woeful news.
However, I think the presentation of positive images and inspiring tales is more helpful in today’s world if only because they are in much shorter supply. An overabundance of crime stories creates the perception of a crime rate out of proportion with reality.
And so the news media is not fulfilling their requirement as expressed by Thomas Jefferson to provide an accurate and truthful report reflecting society.
