There are times that the media just seems to talk about a story or an accident just too much. I understand that the public needs to hear the details, so they are comfortable and feel safe again, but then it is the number of times that the same details are told.
With the media, the stories that are told over and over again are the murder and major accidents, but the nice feel good stories are quickly mentioned and then seem to be forgotten. It would be nice if we could get a better blend on the stories. There hare times when it seems that there is nothing good going on in the world but when you check online there is a lot of good happening, but it just doesn’t get the mention through the media. I have heard that the media feels that they need good stories to talk about, and I feel like a good story is something that isn’t happy, it is something bad.
Lately there has been some murders or homicides in the area that seem to be the main thing that has been talked about on the news. Besides that, there is now all the public figures that are being accused of sexual misconduct. These are the stores that we are hearing over and over again, and they seem to never end.
I understand that people need to know what is going on in their area and if there is a situation that may cause some harm to them, but it is the constant repeating of the same information day after day. If there was something new in one of the cases, then fine, talk about the new information, but please don’t show the same tapes that you have shown over the last few days. With the internet nowadays, if someone has missed something and wants to find out about it, they can easily look it up online and get the information that they have missed.
When the media starts repeating the story too many times, that is when I turn off the television and find something else to do that I enjoy. Sure, we need to hear what is going on in the world, but it would be nice to see some of the feeling good stories just a little more often.
