The latest CriticallyThinking column is posted. In "Finding Bad news in the Good", I use a little sarcasm to show how we are inundated with bad news because that's what makes people read the news.
Using two examples from the last weekends news, I highlight how good news is spun into bad by looking at the downside which always exists.
Like the pessimist who always see the glass as half-full, the news media is always looking for the negative consequences in whatever is happening.
It's like if you decide to go to a theme park, and it turns out you pick the perfect weather day, you will likely have long lines.
