Watching the news is how I start every morning. A year ago it was all I watched. It had been my way of life for 4 years while my son was in the Marine Corp. When he was deployed in Iraq I even slept with the TV on Fox news. Even though I knew if something happened to him there was an agreement between the news stations andthe DOD not to report until the family had been notified. It became my addiction.
He has been home for a year now and I have weaned my way down to first thing in the morning, 3:00 so I can see how the market closed, 6:00 just in case, and 10:00 what if the world stopped spinning and I didn't feel it.
So what would it be like if they took the 24 hour news cycle and filled it with fun stuff like a good car chase in LA they always have the best ones. Or strange stories about zoo animals escaping. Just anything but the constant doom and gloom. Every news channel. No bad news for 3 days.
We can always change the channel and stop watching but what if we had no choice. No bad news to be found.
Would the mood of the public change? Would people start to feel hopefull again?
