Introduction to the Good News Network

Since 1997, people have turned to the Good News Network as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced daily in the mainstream media. Now, Good News Network is #1 on Google (when searching for "good news")

  • Fact 1: While the U.S. homicide rate dropped by 42 percent, the network news coverage of murders jumped more than 700 percent in the 1990's. (Center for Media and Public Affairs)
  • Fact 2: People are turning away from mainstream news. On a weekday evening, less than 25 percent of the homes nationwide tune in to ABC, CBS and NBC news — combined. And, newspaper readership is declining steadily.
  • Fact 3: Young people are learning how positive thinking can directly affect performance and happiness. A positive psychology course at Harvard is the most popular class on campus with around 850 students enrolled.

Featuring original news articles by the Good News Network, along with authors and columnists like David Ignatius, Jeanne Marie Laskas, David Suzuki, and Carol Adrienne.

Gen. Colin Powell, Former Sec. of State said, 
"I enjoyed reading the positive stories... Keep up your good work"

  • In addition to the regular menu of news and essays, where every article is deemed compelling and worth your time, the Web site now features lighter fare in a daily column for coffee breaks called, On This Day in History.

Testimonials

I am totally sick of hearing about murders, drugs, and all the rubbish the commercial networks bombard us with. I am not sticking my head in the sand. It's just that I think, enough is enough. I get depressed as it is, without hearing about all the negative stuff in the world. Thanks for making my day.
