The main reason that you primarily only see the negative being blasted all over the media is because it sells.
People not just in the US but all over the world would rather slow down and see the dead bodies lieing around a car wreck or watch waiting for a jumer
to jump than they would if firemen were out there saving people etc.
Example, there was a news story aboout a mother dof that was found in the ruins of a building by firemen after they had put out the fire. The fire was
a blazing inferno. The dog, actually was protecting it's pups and according to the report, all had made it safely.
That news story received, barely, 15 seconds of air time. It was actually only used as a "sound bite". The news stations, TV, radio, as well as the
printed press were more interested in the evils that were going on around the world such as the Teri Shaivo issue or the MS-13 gangs threatening to
kill the minutemen along the Arizona border.
Both the Shiavo case and the minutemen issue were both very important, but do you really think that they were important enough that they had to be
hashed and rehashed 24/7? Theese two stories were seen by the media as a tool that they could use to sell more newspapers get more listeners and to
basically rile the people up just so that the media can sell more of their product and to further their political agendas.
Think about it, with our troops being overseas in SE Asia, how many positive news stories have you seen or heard about coming from Iraq or
Afghanistan? If you are lucky, you might have heard of maybe one or two quick stories. Now, how many negative news stories have you heard about.
See what I mean?
