News outlets focus on the negative because it sells. When they do this, they make the world seem worse than it actually is.
We get almost daily reports about how vile Donald Trump is even though most decent human beings already know how vile he is. It is almost as if news channels want to up the ante.
In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris, most news outlets do not focus on the efforts of the ordinary people like the ones below.
What we choose to focus on and talk about matters. We can choose the negative, trivial, and unquestioned. We can also choose to focus on the positive, important, and critical.
The first choice is easy and popular while the second is not. Anything worthwhile is never easy. What focus matters to you?
