I was reading an article today about whether TV news is bad for our mental health. I do think there is something in this.
In the UK at least the news is dominated by the latest catastrophe or some other negative news, accidents, murders etc. It is just minute by minute negative news without any prominence given to positive stories. It’s no wonder that we come away thinking that the world is about to end and we are all doomed.
I completely understand that some of these stories need prime time attention but there should be more balance. Wonderful things also do happen on this planet and some acknowledgement would be welcome.
Back in the day the news in the UK used to finish on an upbeat story. It’s a shame that this seems to have been lost somewhere along the way.
