Is our society really so negative and pessimistic?Posted Sunday, June 22, 2008, at 8:53 PM
In the past, I always felt that the media publicized the bad more than the good. I knew that they are giving what they perceived the public wants, but I thought they were overdoing it to sell their news story.
I looked forward to the straight forward opinion of blogs since the everyday person now has the capability to say what they think and get it our across the world. Regrettably, the vast amount of things being said seems negative or conspiratorial. At least on the blogs I am seeing. What do you see?
At first I thought that was a reflection on the real attitude of our society but then I got a closer look at why the most prolific bloggers write their blog. It turns out that MANY are selling something.
This is OK if they are really saying what they believe, but since negative, nasty, traumatic news seems to get the most attention, I wonder if they are just being antagonistic and provoking in order to build traffic.
What do you think".
