    Why does the media put out mostly bad news and why does the public believe what the media says?

    Because bad new is sensationalism that catches the eye and a lot of people do not even watch the news.

      Your right, if new was all good then it wouldn't get and good reviews.

    Good question. I agree with flashmakeit. I bet there are many good news that are never published. Try to not listen to the news at all and you will feel happier.

      I do shut out the news and it does make me feel better.

    Yes, bad news seems to be more interesting to people. I think with the current 24/7 news cycle, the news media is scrambling to find things to fill in the hours.  My husband likes to have News TV on all the time, and we hear the same stories over and over again by the hour.
