TIME FOR POSITIVE STORIES:

Positive psychology could revolutionise journalism; “News consumers report that classic negative news induces ‘learned helplessness’ and passivity, and we are seeing more and more people shy away from it…..According to US researcher Barbara Fredrickson, negative emotion has proven valuable for humans in fight-or-flight situations, but it is positive emotions that have driven civilization forward, because of how they foster creativity and innovation…..Critics claim that we, the news media, are partly responsible for the detrimental state of the world. We in the media usually respond that we are merely describing the world as it is. However, with the bias for negativity in our reporting, it seems to me that we are solely describing the disease model of the world, and adding to the disease by only reporting on negatives instead of positives. As Fredrickson suggests, the positives have the power to drive civilization forward. If not now, in these times, then when?”
