We live in a world where the leading news outlets happily play the ‘bearer of bad news’ on a daily basis. My friend Will is working on a project to try and turn that around. The Smiling Anchor is a blog dedicated to writing about only the most heart-warming, soul touching news in the world. Check it out and help spread the word.

This is great. Frankly it’s annoying. There’s a few news tumblrs I follow, and it gets kind of obnoxious sometimes. Glad to see an alternative approach. I get it, news is news, whether it’s bad or good. But it’s definitely a choice on how it’s reported, as we’ve all learned. You’d be surprised at how much good will and hope stacks up against fear and alarmism.
And this is coming from a general realist/pessimist.
