Positive News Coverage

Submitted by ub on Thu, 01/19/2012 - 13:07

By focusing on poverty, crime and negative behavior, some news outlets fail to give a total portrait of some communities.

Thankfully, overt racism in the press is is rare nowadays and some organizations have made efforts to include people of color in their daily coverage. However, the overwhelming majority of press still emphasizes negative stories like gangs, drugs and violence, sometimes to the exclusion of positive life experiences.

News is about the exception and unusual, but it is also about triumphs and overachievers and other more positive extremes of our everyday life.

We are inviting our readers, white, brown, back and of every color to contact us with positive stories, which could be classified as feelgood news.

City Island Images is committed to highlighting the positive aspects as well.
