Im 50/50 on that one. I don't wish bad things to happen to people but when I hear it, it makes me appreciate my life even more. On the same tip, I don't want to hear good news all the time either. I dont think anyone would be happy if they heard someone just won a billion dollars after losing there job.

You can complain all you want but there is a reason the news is shown as it is.  It sells better this way!!!!  Good news does not sell, plain and simple.  You can argue that perhaps people should care more about good news but the reality is that is simply is not true.

I would rather hear bad news.  I think that hearing bad news serves several purposes. First: it helps you appreciate what you have and forces you to look outside your self and realize that others in this world, unfortunately, are worse off than you.  Second: I think that it prepares you for adversity or avoidance of adversity.  For instance: If you know that a particular area has a convicted killer/rapist running around loose, you can avoid that area and decrease the chances that you will be acosted by this perpetrator.  Mixing in good news helps lighten the darkness that comes from a barage of bad news but hearing bad news is more useful.

good news of course silly. I hate the sad things that are happening in the world but i can't control the crazy behavior of others.

The news where I live always starts off with the bad stuff, and they always have so much of it to tell us about. Sometimes, I don't get to the good stuff because I change the channel.

Itís the reason why I donít bother to watch the news on TV. There are more bad news than good. I'd rather hear more good news.

I would rather hear good news rather than bad.  For example, we will get more rain.   :angel11:

It would be nice to have 2 news stations. One for all the bad that is happening in the world and the other for all the good stuff. It will then be up to you to choose which one to watch.

I would much rather hear good news, but I guess society thrives on the bad news.  I go on The Daily Upbeat.com site for good news.

I hear that we need good news for a change without all of the drama on the news.

There seems to be more bad news than good news. At least that's the way the media reports it. But it would be nice to hear some the media report some genuinely good news.
