Where do you get your news? Many people these days are upset with the media and the way the news is filtered. Yet the alternative in some ways has its drawbacks, too. What’s the alternative? One of them is to get your news on social media. You see a headline, and then suddenly you see more opinions on the subject matter than you care to know. After awhile of doing that, it can make you wish you had stuck to getting your news from the networks.
In all seriousness, there are other alternatives to getting your news, too. Even the local networks usually end the broadcast on a positive note. They provide viewers with an uplifting story that inspires you and makes you smile. There are actually alternative news networks out there that only report the positive headlines. While we don’t live in a utopian society, no one wants to be bombarded with negative news 100 percent of the time, especially the way it is spun these days.
Positive news networks can be refreshing, and they can point you to the latest headlines that you actually want to read. People have enough to handle throughout the day. They don’t want to get home from a hard day’s work, sit down with their family and start hearing negative news headlines one right after the other. Again, it’s about presentation, not leaving all the negative headlines out.
Yet that seems to be the way to find the balance with the news these days. Seek out alternative news sources that report positive headlines. Other than that, staying up with the local news is usually somewhat refreshing. The national news outlets care more about ratings and are going to spin garbage all day long to get your attention. That’s just the way the world works.
