WOW, The many faces of humanity we usually see on the news can be of horrible crimes. I found all three of these on news websites today. If only good information was promoted by the media the way they promote bad information things would get <paid-forward> a lot more often. The bus driver saving a young lady from commiting suicide,....all I can say is WOW. :)

But it is not the media, it is us readers/listeners...positive stuff we read and might even think "WOW" but then we tend to forget it quicker than bad stuff, since it did not shock us. This is a general behaviour, I tested it once on myself, the premise was that I often thought 'I always miss the metro for a few seconds' or more in general 'I'm unlucky'. Then I started to count how many I times I just made it to the metro and other things were I could say I was lucky. The result after 1 week was 50% lucky :-).

The media wants to sell, they want people to talk about the news, and that works just better with bad things...so your critic should be to us.

I've thought that having an All Good News station would be an awesome idea..

A Station that only reported Good News. Local, national, and worldly.
It would take off eventually and get advertising support.
