...this is exactly why we don't see more good news stories on TV

I was reading a post today by Steve Olson called "Do Personal Development Blogs Make You Feel Uneasy? I May Know Why" and it occured to me that this is exactly why we don't see more good news stories on TV. Steve argues that, "Posting positive news while others are suffering can cause ill will." Obviously, since TV is based on ratings and ultimately selling advertisement, no one in that business wants to cause ill will.

 Somehow this never occured to me until I read this post!
