Title: Do you Think the News can be Less Negative?
Post by: laisclep on September 01, 2015, 12:59:21 PM
There are some new journalism theories that want to correct a negativity imbalance in the media. Want to know what you think about it. Here's a link explaining them:

Less negative isn't an aim at all, IMHO.  If you listen to Kate Tempest "half a generation lives beneath the breadline", then how can you be less negative?

More empowering, that's a different thing entirely. More insightful. More educating.

This is how the news should be, if you ask me.

I think there's a correlation between the level of subsistence of the social factor and the news beinig negative or positive - should there be more everyday activism, the demand for the news would change and news more construcrive would be expected.
