I Can’t Watch The NewsAugust 7th, 2006 by Laura Moncur in News
Sometimes when I log on to CNN.com, I feel overwhelmed with bad news. I find that I haven’t the stomach for it anymore. There is so much war and massacre every day that CNN makes me feel as if the entire planet is on fire.
Guess what? It’s not.
There are quiet, happy places all around us, even in the war-torn lands. CNN doesn’t care about those quiet and happy places. Quiet and happy doesn’t sell stocks and hemorrhoid cream. I want to see those stories far more than the blood shed. If CNN concentrated on all the good that happens in the world and ignored the bad, I have a feeling that wars and suffering would disappear from neglect.
