You know it would be nice if the paper, the entire media actually, would focus on some positive things. I read the news and what do I see? The top five articles, bad news. The paper, almost in entirety, filled with negative things. Could we lighten up the the mood of the readers? I know for a fact there have been many good things that have happened.
I understand that the news is the news and your job is to report it. What I'm asking is that you expose, if you could, more of the positive news. Find more room for positive things to at least level it off. This might even be good for your business. You understand, more people might actually like to read the paper.
