WHEN THE ONLY NEWS IS BAD NEWS
The surest sign that an industry or business or sport is in trouble is when the only news about it is negative. Front page headlines, lead items on news bulletins, seldom if ever are about positives. Society is conditioned to accept and anticipate negatives and bad news. Perversely, it thrives on identifying the problems and wallowing in self-pity. Forget the solutions, the positives. That would just mean there’s less to whine and whinge about.
