“Could one produce a newspaper with just positive news? What effect would it have on readers?”
Even in your splendid paper, news is permanently skewed to and by largely male-generated violence. How is it that this narrative is still perceived as having greater traction and valency, being more real than all others, even while it blights across cultural, moral, sexual, religious, environmental and political indices? Good news is what manages to survive on the underside, in the cracks and interstices of this evil paradigm. How do we feed the former and starve the latter?
