Since 2006, their daily dose of ‘News to Enthuse’ has confirmed for thousands of fans what they already knew to be true — that good news itself is not in short supply; the broadcasting of it is. Thomas Jefferson said the job of journalists was to portray accurately what was happening in society. The Good News Network was founded because the media was precisely failing to report on the positive. In the 1990’s while homicide rates in the U.S. plummeted by 42%, television news coverage of murders surged more than 700%, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs.
The Network has built a community of people enthused by positive news, eager to participate with each other, and dedicated to the enrichment and inspiration of all. Their website was created in order to report on outstanding citizen action, innovative solutions to the world’s problems, and to shatter negative stereotypes in the public regarding race, governments, politicians, religion, corporations, Hollywood, public schools, and inner cities.
