Can We Try To Be Positive?

I am becoming increasingly frustrated at the incessant gloom and doom being churned out by our wonderful media, whether it be print, radio or TV.

Nobody is arguing that the economic situation is difficult to say the least but do we have to endure the constant harping about the "disaster" as seen by our worthy fourth estate.

It really came to a head recently when at the Davos conference, Robert Peston was heard, well nigh screaming, about the atmosphere being "unspeakably dire" and all that he wanted to do was to go and lie down somewhere. We should be so lucky!

It would be a great relief, to me anyway, if the media could just go with some positive news for a change. I know that bad news sells but we need some light in our lives and the press could certainly help. It reminds me of the story of the man who said that he was constantly reading about the dangers of smoking so he stopped - reading.

Henry Ford said "If you say you can or you say you can't, you're always right" and it's about time that we started to say, in the words of President Obama "YES, WE CAN!"
