I suppose your right. As far as the media is concerned, their in it to make $$$ and death & destruction is what sells.
A coworker of mine comes from Woodhull NY. Just a small town with a pop. of maybe 1000 and most of it is spread out into the sticks. The have a free, small town paper that he used to bring into work that I enjoyed reading. Nothing in there about politics, fires, car wrecks, crime etc. It's all about the town happenings. Articles about the local church, weddings, graduations, Cub Scout projects, dances, church and fire dept fundraisers etc. A far cry from the crap in our paper.
Off topic but if anyone gets out to Woodhull, there is a place called Golden Age Cheese. They have the best cheese curds I have ever had, especially the cajun and jalapeno!!http://www.goldenagecheese.com/
