Seriously! TV news has never been about happy endings, except for the ‘And Finally’ story at the end of a news program, which is normally the one good news story of the day to cheer you up, after all the depressing rubbish you have just been exposed to.

But in my 50 years on this planet, I have never known a more depressing time for news than now. Was this what the news looked like back before the outbreak of World War 1 or World War 2? And thrown into the mix of killing and fanatical actions is the threat of plague spreading across the world and killing over half of us.

What can we do to make the world suck less?
