Media tends to cover to bad news more readily than the good ones. That is what my point is, it emphasizes on the negative aspects more than the positive ones. Even if the world is pretty messed up, it is not as messed up as the media depicts it to be.
well I think it depends what you mean by "media", FOX might lead us to believe that we're on a one way trip to a nuclear apocalypse by the hands of the Kenyan Muslim in the oval office, where other news organizations are a bit less dramatic are less dramatic and more realistic.
On another note, I think simply living in a first world country makes us oblivious to things the media won't even cover. We aren't in constant fear of drone strikes or militant terrorist groups destroying our village(well most of us), were not dying by the thousands daily from disease and starvation, we aren't enslaved though there are more slaves now than there's ever been...
Bad news sells better than good news, and it will always overshadow anything good going on, but the world IS pretty messed up.
