The Good News
By Arlett R. Hartie on September 11, 2012
I hate the news…oh no, scratch that. Its feel good Friday so let me start a little more positively. I love watching anything other than the news. Most of it is not news anyway. It is a lot of gossip and entertainment with very little news. As sad as it may be, an unfortunate fire, accidental car accident, or domestic dispute (unless someone is on the run) is not news it is gossip, a way to say look at what happened to these folks. It does not impact my life other than to make me sad or riddled with anxiety. Also the sport segment is not news. Details of Tiger wood’s golf swing (or his wife’s for that matter) is not new, it is entertainment. News is things that impact the majority of viewers such as the weather, major traffic problems such as long term road work, crimes with wanted suspects, major disasters, local and Federal legislation, and safety information such as how to be more observant like the vendor in NY that prevented the Time Square bombing.
So what does my complaining about the news have to do with Feel Good Friday, you ask???? This week I discovered Good News Daily. - This is my kind of news. It is full of feel good stories. This online publication only publishes good news stories from around the world. No crime stories, No sad stories, and No negative celebrity news. Instead the articles are good news stories related to World News, US News, Family Life, Business, Sports, Travel, Entertainment and other topics. So this Feel Good Friday check out Good News Daily (http://goodnewsdaily.com) and find a story that brings some Joy to your day. Happy Friday :-) This was originally posted on Chasing Joy.
